Joe the Plumber was a Plant for the McCain Campaign

We heard a lot about "Joe the Plumber" (Joe Wurzelbacher) in tonight's debate. He was presented as Mr. Middle Class Hard Working Guy Just Trying to Rub Two Nickels Together. It's now clear that "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher is not an independent or undecided voter at all. He is a McCain plant. And the sorry media got punked.

Here is the latest tidbit from Joe the Racist, in a post-debate interview with Katie Couric, via Politico:

"McCain was solid in his performance," he says. "I still don't know where he stands," he says of Obama. "I'm middle class. I can't have my taxes raised any more."

He also says he actually isn't in the bracket where Obama would raise his taxes -- but he's worried that Obama will shift the bracket down.

He also said that, in his encounter with Obama, the Illinois Senator "a tap dance...almost as good as Sammy Davis, Jr."

Ta ta, Phony Joe. Better get back to plunging those toilets.

Incidentally, could Joe Wurzelbacher possibly be a family relation to one Richard Wurzelbacher? It begs investigation, at the very least. Let's see if any of the media pundits can get some shoe leather going on it...

During tonight's debate, McCain was the same nasty, bitter old man we saw in the first two debates, only more so. In fact, he was embarassing and scary -- continually lying about Obama's record and coming completely unhinged whenever Obama used exemplary oratory to make solid points.

McCain's political life is over. He can now retire to Arizona and spend his waning hours reminding his former constituents how he stood up for them back in the day by trying to prevent MLK Jr's birthday from becoming a national holiday.
