Five Ordinary Joes: Raging Skinhead Plumber Joe Wurzelbacher Is No Mr Clean

by | 17th, October 2008

BARACK Obama is in conversation with a plumber called Joe Wurzelbacher.

Joe becomes a star. Joe’s a celeb. Joe the plumber is mentioned 23 times in the Obama-McCain debate.

Honest Joe is on the telly with Diane Sawyer, telling one and all that when he told Obama at an Ohio campaign stop that he makes $250,000 he was being economical with the actualité.

Joe is now talked about as being a “raging skinhead plumber“.

The aim of the media now is to chew Joe up; to use Joe to explain why people like Joe should not be listened to; why people like Joe should not even have a vote. The Telegraph in the UK opines:

Journalists all over the United States were scouring Mr Wurzelbacher’s past. There were conflicting reports that he was a registered Republican who voted in the party’s primary and that he was not registered to vote at all. There were also reports that the plumber owes almost $1,200 in back taxes to the state of Ohio.

Michelle Malkin, US nodding head extraordinaire, offers:

The Left’s political plumbers are attacking the messenger, rummaging through his personal life, and predictably wielding the race card once again. It’s standard operating procedure for the Obama thug machine.

Instapundit sees more Joes:

Joe Schwark, owner of JMS Plumbing in Spring Hill, said he has a general distrust of politicians, but appreciated the recognition of his craft.

“Personally, I don’t think either of them is what the country needs,” he said. “But it is what it is.”

Jules Crittenden sees Joes, too:

Turns out there’s a lot of them out there. They’re Joes, they’re plumbers, they speak their minds. Not all on the same page about how to unclog that drain, though. Uh oh, Joe the Plumber from Framingham, Mass., better watch out … doesn’t he know mocking Obama is racism?

And what about Joe. Well, he;s nothign enws. hel;s an identikit Joe. he;re are some more Joes:

1. Mr. Clean
2. Britney Spears

3. Clive Arrindell

4. AXA’s grumpy man

Cross the Line with AXA

5. Joe Le Taxi

Everyone knows Joe…
