John McCain wasted half the final debate talking about and raising sympathy for poor 'Joe the Plumber' who has worked soooooo hard and just wants to buy the company he works for without getting taxed out the ass but turns out -- Joe's not a licensed plumber!
Apparently he's a cranky racist - and registered Republican - from a suburb of Toledo who wants everyone to vote for the cranky candidate he supports.
Not only is he not registered to work as a plumber in Ohio, he never even took the apprenticeship training. And there is a lien against him for failure to pay property taxes.
The union of the trade that Joe "works" for supports Obama.
I'd like to imagine the conversation in the McCain Campaign Bunker today...
"Who's frickin' idea was it to use Joe the Plumber during the debate?"
"Uh, that would be the same person who told you to choose Sarah Palin."
Life is complicated.
