Tito the Builder?

Apparently he's the new go-to guy in this daft Presidential election. Of course, it shows how out of touch I am that when I saw Tito was the headline act I found myself wondering quite how Yugoslav politics had become an issue. Then I realised that it was the lovely Sarah Palin who'd been talking about Tito, so obviously it had to be something else entirely.

UPDATE, October 27th. Ana Marie Cox braves the nonsense:

Obviously, the big draw in Leesburg this morning was Tito the Builder, aka Tito Munoz, aka defended of Joe the Plumber. If you had ever wanted to hear a crowd of Northern Virigian White People chant "Tito! Tito! Tito!" who weren't looking for a Jackson brother encore, well, you missed your chance.
