This Joe the Plumber character has seemed to stir up a lot of attention. his business must be booming now that he is an overnight celebrity.
however... is Joe the Plumber really real??? This website certainly claims him to be:
Joe The Plumber
It could also be that he is a political falacy because he fits into so many demographics i.e.
the small business owner
a union member
an average hardworking american worrying about the current state of affairs
but what worries me and makes me put on my conspiracy hat is that I recall Joe the Plumber coming up in the French elections as well...
Joe the Polish / French Plumber
... It makes me wonder if this is all an elaborate political ruse????
(I apologise if this is in the wrong section and mods are welcome to move it
