    You’d think Joe the Plumber’s 15 minutes would be up by now. But , no, after a stint as a correspondent in Israel, he took his act to Capitol Hill today.
    The first order of business: giving political advice to conservative Republican staffers at breakfast, which, Wurzelbacher told us, “Went really well.”

    A note to the GOP:

    Please stop.

    Maybe Obama will nominate him for a Cabinet post. After all, Joe doesn't pay his taxes either.

    The Republicans understand their base.

    Joe the plumber appeals to that base.

    Hence, they pretend to listen to him.

    The only reason Joe has any relevance is because the media keeps putting him in the spotlight. It's like a car wreck, people just can't seem to help themselves but look and see what he's saying now. But the reality is that no one really cares, it's just the spectacle of it all. Way too much of the media is just about making us hate each other and see the other side as stupid.

    Which is a damn good reason not to pay any attention to it. The media can no longer be trusted to give us the information we need to be responsible and educated citizens.

    Sure, it's the presses fault that the GOP is inviting Joe the Plumber to speak to them.

    :lol:
