Liberal Bloggers Insist Registered Republican Cannot Be Undecided; Apparently They Have Doubts About ‘Obamacans’ Too

I am trying to determine if Joe the Plumber ever claimed to be undecided. I note that in this Reuters report, the headline — “Joe the Plumber still undecided in U.S. vote” — is not supported by the article itself, which states:

The morning after he emerged as the unexpected star of Wednesday night’s presidential debate, Joe Wurzelbacher of Holland, Ohio, declined to say who he will vote for in the Nov. 4 election.

“It’s a personal decision, and myself and the button I push will know the answer,” the 34-year-old plumber and single father said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” program.

Also, note that in an election cycle in which Democrats have assured us of the presence of a growing mass of “Obamacans” — Republicans for Obama — liberal bloggers at Daily Kos are insisting that because Joe the Plumber is a registered Republican, he cannot be undecided.
