Joe the Whatever


Joe the (not) Plumber seems to be finally nearing the end of his 15 minutes of fame. Dropping into the belly of the beast, he's in DC promoting his new book in between stalking the "thieves and liars" on Capitol Hill for PJ Media. Joe stood behind the miked lectern in the basement of Borders to regale a veritable mob of a dozen, who wandered over to hear "average Joe's" deep insights. He advised the accidental throng that plumbing is hard work. But here's the exciting part:
Joe says he plans to work in construction (hello, stimulus package!) once his gig doing commentary for a conservative Web site runs out at the end of March.
Guess PJM decided to let their rising star, Joe the War Correspondent, flame out. Good thing he has a back up plan, because Joe the Author probably isn't going to make him rich enough to pay those socialist taxes either. He only sold 5 books. [photo James M. Thresher - WaPo]

Hi Libby. Joe clearly is out of his depth. Doesn't he know how wingnuts make it to the bestseller list?

This may be the only time I take issue with one of your posts Libby. This joker has been inflicted on us relentlessly since October. I've had enough of this idiot. His only purpose is to be used from now on as an example of idiocy. "Man. That's dumber than Joe the Plumber" is the context he and his name or likeness should be used as.
I have great respect and admiration for you as a person and a blogger Libby. You most definitely are an "A" lister. A post about Joe the Plumber is unworthy of your keyboard.

Respectfully Yours: Truth101

Hey Dan. Clearly Joe didn't make it to the wingnut welfare department of book promotions.

Hey Truth. Normally I would ignore Joe, but I was so thrilled to see PJM is dumping him, I just had to share the good news. I believe this is will be the last we'll hear of him. He was already fading when PJ put back in the spotlight.

I do love the new maxim though. Dumber than Joe the Plumber. Catchy.
