Meet Joe the Plumber*

If there is a lesson to be learned here maybe it is that it pays to speak up at rallies…or something. Whether Joe the Plumber is this election’s ‘Checkers’ moment remains to be seen, one thing is for sure, if Joe the Plumber manages to tap the right agent (of the hordes that have no doubt reached out to him in the last 18 hours) this is not the last we will be hearing from him. But wow, Joe the Plumber is no fan of “pretty talk” Obama. Maybe look for him at your next GOP rally!

*Or not. Turns out Joe’s not a plumber. His name isn’t Joe. And being singled out in a presidential debate more than two dozen times is the quickest way to let the IRS know you owe in back taxes. Still, this is America, so we imagine he will still manage to make money off this somehow.
