Of course, he can't be any dumber than "Joe the Plumber".

Edited for spelling.

4. Vaguely resembles a son-in-law I used to have (thankfully no longer).
Divorce is such a wonderful problem solver.

7. He's the lead singer of a conservative rock group called the Il Eagles.
Apparently they recently performed in Buffalo, New York:

http://thebuffalobean.com/2009/03/28/buffalo-tea-party-... /

"First on stage was the rock band, Il Eagles, a Missouri based act who the St. Louis Riverfront Times once described as having a bluesy-funk sound and heralded as possibly being the next Oasis. Mustachioed Il Eagles lead singer Tom Moran came fully dressed for the part, sporting an American flag bandana, sunglasses and a tee-shirt of his hometown baseball team, the St. Louis Cardinals.

Moran and his bandmates wasted no time in jumping into their eight minute jam titled, Radio Lady and the Tamale Children, which Moran described as being an allegorical tale of a small business forced to shutter its doors after being hit with crippling unemployment compensation taxes. After striking his last chord of the song, Moran directed his anger at the 44th President. Since when do taxes solve any of our problems, President Obama? Get a brain! Moran shouted as the audience cheered."

8. The thing I find funny about this picture...
...is that his do-rag with all the stars makes him look like a cartoon character that has been hit in the head--the Wiley Coyote, for example--and the cartoon stars are circling his head.

15. He's like the giant mutant alligatiors in the New York sewers. He doesn't "actually" exist.

18. I have posted on this before, and not for significance but just for fun
Get a brain is a zombie reference, and a strawman reference.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_man

The guy has the stars above his head.

Moran is one of the writers for Dr. Who.

Cardinals are Red Birds.

That's all I saw out of it.
