As the son of a pipefitter, I’m proud to say that Joe the Plumber – with his common sense and courage to “speak his mind” and ask the right question at the right time – might yet become the hero of the 2008 election:
Of course, there is always the chance that the John McCain campaign makes the fatal mistake of calling Liquid Plumber first.* Let’s hope that doesn’t happen!
Even if he is from Ohio, God bless Joe Wurzelbacher.
*In case you were trying really hard to figure it out, this is neither a product endorsement nor any kind of deep metaphor. It’s just a bad joke.
