McCain discovers plumber no ordinary Joe - Carrie Budoff Brown and Amie Parnes - Politico.com
Joe the plumber is about to buy a business that will make him enough money that Obama will raise his takes.
But, he is not a plumber by license and could not own a plumber business, he makes $40,000 a year and the business he says he wants to buy only bring in about $100,000 a year and Joe does not pay his taxes well anyways, in fact he owes back taxes.
His name is Joe Wurzelbacher that is all, a nobody suddenly famous he is the bald white symbol of the cheapness of the GOP age. A man who has earned nothing, done nothing, and is of no interest says something to Obama and John McCain has replaced Palin with him. Maybe Palin will drop out as VP and Joe will come in?
One question I would love to ask Joe the Non-Plumber is what he generally thinks of African Amreicans. Was he lying just to get on TV, or did he have a deeper motivation to try and work against Obama?
