    Joe the Plumber: McCain 'appalled me' - Andy Barr - Politico.com

    Joe Wurzelbacher lashed out Tuesday at former GOP presidential nominee John McCain, the man who made Wurzelbacher famous as “Joe the Plumber.”

    Wurzelbacher told conservative radio host Glenn Beck that he felt “dirty” after “being on the campaign trail and seeing some of the things that take place.”

    Recalling a conversation he had with McCain about the $700 billion financial industry bailout in September, Wurzelbacher said: “When I was on the bus with him, I asked him a lot of questions about the bailout because most Americans did not want that to happen.”

    “I asked him some pretty direct questions,” he continued. “Some of the answers you guys are gonna receive — they appalled me, absolutely. I was angry. In fact, I wanted to get off the bus after I talked to him.”

    Asked why he didn’t leave McCain’s campaign if he was “appalled” by the candidate, Wurzelbacher said, “honestly, because the thought of Barack Obama as president scares me even more.”

    While Wurzelbacher was critical of McCain during the interview, he had nothing but praise for his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. “Sarah Palin is absolutely the real deal,” he said.

    Something tells me this guy wouldn't know the real deal if it slapped him in the head.

    Anybody think Joe is scrambling to try and salvage some credibility?

    Sounds like BS to me.

    I think he'll be running for Congress in two years.

    Love to see, then we can pretty much count on Obama being reelected! And as for Joe, he knew what he was getting into to and maybe this is why he didn't bother to show up at that rally that day.

    Okay, so "Joe the Plumber" was nothing more than a hard right. Who would've guessed?

    Would he be saying that if McCain had won?

    Obviously not.

    This guy is seriously a joke, and he needs to go away.
