Joe the American Idol?

I wish I was making this up. Here's the latest from Politico:

Move over, Sanjaya, and tell William Hung the news: Joe the Plumber is being pursued for a major record deal and could come out with a country album as early as Inauguration Day.

"Joe" — aka Samuel Wurzelbacher, a Holland, Ohio, pipe-and-toilet man — just signed with a Nashville public relations and management firm to handle interview requests and media appearances, as well as create new career opportunities, including a shift out of the plumbing trade into stage and studio performances.

On Tuesday, Wurzelbacher joined country music artist and producer Aaron Tippin to form a new partnership...

Maybe Joe won't have to worry about getting a plumber's license after all. He can purchase an insanely big mansion outside of Nashville, marry a supermodel, go through a messy divorce, watch her take half of everything he owns, and he can spend the rest of his life on the celebrity golf circuit.

Like a lot of other country music stars. Oh well, a guy's gotta make a living, right?
