Joe The Author

It doesn't look like he'll be giving Steven King a run for his money anytime soon:

About 11 people wandered into the rows of seats set up hopefully in the basement of a downtown Border's bookstore to hear Joe speak...

Joe got a couple of news cycles' worth of attention starting on Oct. 12 -- he remembers the date clearly -- when he was videotaped confronting Barack Obama about his small-business tax plans... Now, only a few months later, he's kind of like a vestigial tail, a leftover artifact from a forgotten time...

Plumbing? Not happening. "I show up on a plumbing job and the first thing someone's going to say is 'Joe the Plumber didn't do the job right,' " he said. "The next thing you know, it's on the national news. It would be naive to go back to it."

Wurzelbacher says he's still no fan of Obama, but confessed that he never liked McCain all that much, either. Nor has he cared for the politicians he's met on Capitol Hill. "Liars and thieves," he called them...

Wurzelbacher was scheduled to speak and sign books for three hours, but the Joe Show was over in 55 minutes. Total copies of "Joe the Plumber" sold: five.
It's about time we ended the charade of pretending that this guy is anything more than a campaign prop left over from the last election. The smarter Republicans are starting to figure this out but many more have a long way to go.

Can somebody please please give this poor schmuck a job. He admits to not knowing a damn thing about plumbing. He couldn't cut it as a war correspondent. He is only able to sell a book about as often as
Bush reads one. Maybe someone could get him a job on a farm cuz he sure knows how to shovel shit.So come on America, let's get Joe gainfully employed again before he has to resort to giving
$20 hummers down at the porno emporium. A job for which he is ultimately qualified because he sure can SUCK.

Yup, its the default in a case like this, naturally

"Joe the plumber lays an Alaskan Pipeline"

"The Straight Cock Express meets Joe the Plumber"

"Joe and Sarah a pig and some lipstick"

Doug"e" and cracker, Larry Flynt already beat you guys to it I'm afraid. These guys probably don't know as much about laying pipe but they do have pretty big guns.

cracker said...

nah nah JBW....I mean Wurselbacher(sp) is actually going to star in a porn himself.....like John Wayne Bobbit or uhh...anyway

I bet within a year there will be a porn with the real Joe in it.

Someone is going to offer this dip a million.....and he will take it
