Move over Joe Six Pack, there’s a new Joe in town! We are of course talking about Joe the Plumber, also known as Joe Wurzelbacher, the aspiring small business owner from Ohio who became a central talking point during yesterday’s Presidential debate. As John McCain‘s symbol of all who would have to pay more taxes under Barack Obama‘s socialist economic redistribution program (not the be confused with our current socialist economic redistribution program, which is known as “the bailout”), Joe’s name was invoked at least 20 times! Even the resurgent Katie Couric called him up to talk about how he’s still probably going to vote for McCain!
But is this working class hero an impostor?
