SAY IT AIN'T JOE!

Living talking point salt-of-the-earth Plumber Joe is neither a Plumber nor a Joe! http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/10/16/joe-in-the-spotlight/?hp


Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher is a registered Republican non-plumber who owes back taxes. And--developing---may be related to, (and pardon me for enjoying this so much)-------

CHARLES KEATING!
Perhaps he really did happen to see Obama campaigning in the neighborhood and just decided to pin him down. And perhaps the new darling of the New York Post betrayed something extra when complaining about the answer Obama gave him: Sam---er, "Joe", complained that Obama tap danced "like Sammy Davis Jr." Now let's pause while Republicans dust off their "Obama's playing the race card", their go-to, dog-eared, time-worn, battle-scarred, defense of racism.
FLASH: THIS JUST IN, NOTJOE ALSO NOT A KEATING
Just another darling of local right wing talk-radio hosts, whose father, Robert Wurzelbacher, happens to share the same name as Charles Keating's SIL, Robert Wurzelbacher. But NotJoe Wurzelbacher, of the Ohio Wurzelbachers, does have an ability to spout right-wing talking points, engaging hapless reporters not only on his hostility to Social Security, but the necessity for offshore drilling, a true bread-and-butter Ohio issue.

  1. Just for your OWN edification, it is NOT true that this guy is somehow related to THE Charles Keating of the Keating 5....better check your facts before you post rubbish and gossip. You'll look like one of the childhood "gossip game" participants.

  3. Hey there, anonymous, thanks for your concern, but hadn't you better read more closely before harrumphing about rubbish?

    The words "MAY BE" are usually not considered to mean "definitively." I will update my post with the latest, which leaves us NotJoe the Not Undecided NotPlumber who is Not considering buying a $250,000 business according to what assets he actually has. NotJoe would in fact be in line to receive a tax reduction if he makes anywhere near the average yearly salary for average plumbers.

    We do now know definitively that NotJoe is a registered Republican and voted as such in the primaries. No maybes about it.

    Thanks for visiting, and be sure and check back to edify me some more!

  4. Danps, Pruning Shears is a wonderful site, a must for anyone who is concerned about getting the hideously swollen powers of the executive branch under control and getting our misshapen government back in constitutional trim. Thanks for writing, I'm honored.
