Joe the Journalist

This is where the "mediocrity and American culture" part of the blog comes in. The Associated Press is reporting that Samuel J. "Joe The Plumber" Wurzelbacher (or "Wurzelburger", if you ask John McCain) is going to be a war correspondent in Israel for the Web site Pajamas TV. He will be going there to let "Average Joes tell their story."

This is the same "Joe the Plumber" who attacked Obama's "socialist" tax plan even though it would be better for him than McCain's tax plan. This is also the guy that said a vote for Obama is a vote for "Death to Israel," so I doubt he will be interviewing many "Average Joes" among the Palestinian community.

I have a better name for him: Joe the BS artist.

If this guy gets an agent and a job as a reporter, the girl who asked Bill Clinton if he wore boxers or briefs should have gotten her own book and talk show.
