Joe The Plumber Gets Some PR Help

Like all good celebrities big and small, Joe the Plumber has hired a publicity team.

The Press Office in Nashville already boasts clients like rockers Grand Funk Railroad and Eddie Money. Now they'll help Joe Wurzelbacher handle the flood of interview and appearance requests that have been pouring in since he became a household name during a presidential debate.

Despite rumors to the contrary, he's not planning to release an album, though a book is in the works.

Wurzelbacher has been campaigning for the Republican ticket on his own bus tour around Ohio this week, and appeared with Sarah Palin Wednesday. His name comes up at just about every GOP rally.

Wurzelbacher's new publicist says "people are curious as to what's on his mind."

    Is Joe the Plumber any relation to Hank the Angry, Drunk Dwarf from the old Howard Stern TV show? Just wondering. It's fitting that this idiot is attending rallys with the other idiot Palin. Shall we call them Beavis and Butthead? How about Tweedle Dum and Twedle Dee? Dumb and Dumber perhap? No wonder this country is laughed at by the rest of the world.

    A better question is where is the ACLU decrying the violation of this man's privacy? Why are all you Democrats, who were so appalled by so-called "domestic spying" (which was actually terrorist surveillance), not calling for investigations into why an OH state agency ran unauthorized background checks on Joe? He is not a public figure. He is not campaigning for anything. He was not even interested enough to go to a rally. Obama walked into his neighborhood begging for votes, encouraging people to ask questions, so Joe asked him a question. His own embarrassing and revealing answer is the reason the focus was shifted to Joe. Anyone who dare question THAT one and make him reveal himself must be destroyed I guess.

    The whole McCain campaign is a circus. A joke.

    I guess Joe will be Sarah's VP pick in 2012. Laughable.

    Good for him, he dareth question the "chosen one". Well then, I would like to ask Obama about Ayers, Wright, Pfleiger, Rezko and the list goes on. What he plans to do in Iraq and where did he get his money from? Why, has the media failed us? Why are they keeping quiet until "after" the election? This guy is snaking his way into president and some of you fell for it. Shame on you for not questioning "who this guy is"?

    I think this guy's 15 minutes of fame is up.

    This guy did not ask for this attention. He simply questioned a politician. Do the people who are voting for Obama really believe this could never be you? The have mocked and investigated this guy to try and discredit him. So, make sure that you have no skeletons in the closet if you ever try to speak freely in opposition to Obama. Not that anyone voting for this guy would ever have an independant thought

    Oh my God. That's all I can say. What next?
