Beyond Fifteen Minutes

Work must be slow for Joe "The Plumber" Wurzelbacher. In fact, it's been reported that the plumbing business he was in went under. I'm not sure why, maybe all the media attention and they couldn't get any work done. Maybe the city building inspector's office was in cahoots with big labor to shut them down for dissing The Messiah. So now, he's overheard agreeing with some guy who thinks that a vote for Obama is a vote for “the death of Israel." And Shep Smith of Fox News Channel just has to know why. You can follow the buzz at either Hot Air or The Huffiington Post if you're so inclined. Maybe Joe is way off base, or maybe he's right. Frankly, I don't care. When Joe the Plumber starts being Joe the Pundit, it's a whole new ball game, and he can quit complaining about the press hounding him. That's why he needs to put the brakes on it, and go back to being the reason he became the symbol of what this election is about in the first place.

[THIS JUST IN: There is an initiative to draft Wurzelbacher to run for Congress, to represent Ohio's 9th District, in the 2010 election. He should think twice before accepting.]

[THIS GETS BETTER: Maybe Joe won't have to worry about his plumbing license after all, now that he's found a potential new line of work.]
