‘Joe the Plumber’ Who Wasn’t Really A Plumber or Named Joe is Now Really A War Correspondent

Seriously? The dude who agreed with a McCain supporter that Obama being president would mean the death of Israel is going to have a JOB reporting news from the Middle East? Seriously?!

The AP story states the following:

The Ohio man who became a household name during the presidential campaign says he is heading to Israel as a war correspondent for the conservative Web site

Samuel J. Wurzelbacher says he’ll spend 10 days covering the fighting.

He tells WNWO-TV in Toledo that he wants to let Israel’s “‘Average Joes’ share their story.”

There is a word gets thrown around a lot – it really is the best one we can come up with for this…it perfect for when something phony and a cheap attempt at something otherwise decent manifests – the word is – travesty. There are real journalists out of work. Like a lot of them. And the wannabe country western star, media whore and general fabricator gets a gig?!

This is why we’re happy John McCain lost – otherwise Tido the Builder would have become Secretary of the Interior.
