"Joe Plumber" isn't what he seems

After referencing him heavily in the debate as a "real world" example of someone who would be negatively affected by Barack Obama's economic policy, John McCain forgot to read the fine print.

"He owes back taxes. He is not a licensed plumber. And it turns out that Wurzelbacher makes less than $250,000 a year, which means he would receive a tax cut if Obama were elected president."


Too bad his last name isn't a little more generic, it may be a while before the poor guys lives this one down.
