Joe the Plumber (Rumor Control)?

Okay, who the hec is Joe the plumber, anyway? A Republican plant? Lot's of rumors floating around the internet. What kind of Plumber makes $250,000 dollars a year? Or, put in another way, what kind of plumber can afford to pay the million plus dollars it would take to buy a business that he claims would earn him $250,000-270,000 dollars a year? Joe the plumber, that's who.

So, what do we know?

Well, apparently he does not have a plumber's license. He considers himself a Republican. He owes back-taxes. Other unsubstantiated rumors include, his connection to the Keating Five. He is not listed in the phone book (probably not good for business). He is not registered to vote. He has been convicted of domestic violence on multiple occasions? And yes, he is a single dad-what a surprise.

Dude, you deleted your first post before I could comment. No big deal. You can edit your original post without having to post a new one, by the way.

This thing is hilarious in so many ways; did he get his full 15 minutes of fame and then some, or what? The rapidity and the rabidness of MSM is something to behold, ain't it? No wonder he joked, "I'm kind of like Britney Spears having a headache. Everybody wants to know about it."

Here's the link to the AP article:
Is 'Joe the Plumber' a plumber? That's debatable
