It's insane enough that Joe the Plumber is now a war correspondent in Israel, but now he's telling actual journalists how to do their job.

J the P decided to pick a fight with an Israeli reporter, after the reporter hesitated to answer his inane question. The exchange went like this:

JOE: The story here is people are being killed and the media's slanting it and trying to make it Hamas is, uh, as far as, that Israel's being bad. Do you believe Israel is bad?

REPORTER: Do I believe it?

JOE: Yeah, do you?!

REPORTER: I'm Israeli, so...

JOE: So answer the question!

REPORTER: No, I don't think Israel is bad.

JOE: Do you think Israel has every right to protect itself?

REPORTER: Yeah.

[pause]

JOE: You do?!

REPORTER: Yeah.

JOE: Have you said that on air?

REPORTER: I'm just a reporter.

And Joe the Plumber is just an idiot.
