Is The GOP Going Down The Toilet?

Joe the Plumber

By Alan Jasie
Political correspondent

From folk hero, to war correspondent and now adviser on the stimulus package to GOP congressional aides, Samuel “Joe the Plumber” Wurzelbacher continues to defy the odds.

Andy Warhol once pointed out that everybody gets their 15 minutes of fame. JTP is working at making his 15 into a full time job. I guess it beats cleaning septic tanks and snaking toilets for a living.

Wurzelbacher is scheduled to speak to the Conservative Working Group, an organization of Hill staffers who meet regularly to chart GOP strategy for the week. The last time a Republican, Richard Nixon, relied on plumbers, it didn’t go so well. Maybe Joe find a way to get our economy flowing again!


We talk about these issues and more weekdays at 5 PM New York time on News Talk Online on

You gotta be kidding! The politics circus that this is creating is at the core of what is wrong with Republicans.

Good for Joe! I am not surprised!
I just hope Joe the Plumber runs for President.
