Joe the Plumber's Wisecrack
I was just reading a piece that followed up on all the "Joe the Plumber" refrences at the debate last night, an article that appears here on the NY Times. He's feeling like Britney Spears, he says, "having a headache." People all over take opportunities of being in the spotlight and seek to make money selling shirts or whatever they can do with some brief notoriety (think of Sarah Silverman and her Great Schlep video and website), so I wondered if Joe was doing so. Who's got joetheplumber.com? It's not Mr. Wurzelbacher, but an outfit down in San Antonio. You'll have to find the “Vote Joe the Plumber ’08" T-shirts someplace else.
