Joe the Economic Advisor

Okay, look, when you're taking economic advice from a plumber that isn't even legally qualified to give advice on plumbing, you need to admit that "flailing around helplessly" is your only remaining plan.

Or, the GOP has been involved in the longest-running piece of performance art in history.

It's getting a little hard to tell.


Fresh off his stint as a war correspondent in Gaza, Joe the Plumber is now doing political strategy with Republicans.

When GOP congressional aides gather Tuesday morning for a meeting of the Conservative Working Group, Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher – more commonly known as Joe the Plumber — will be their featured guest. This group is an organization of conservative Capitol Hill staffers who meet regularly to chart GOP strategy for the week.Wurzelbacher, who became a household name during the presidential election, will be focusing his talk on the proposed stimulus package. He's apparently not a fan of the economic rescue package, according to members of the group.

If nothing else, GOP aides are using the appearance to get staffers to attend the 9 a.m meeting.“In case you weren’t planning to attend CWG tomorrow morning, you might want to reconsider because Joe the Plumber will be joining us!” Kimberly Wallner, an aide to South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, wrote in a message to her e-mail list this afternoon.

Keep in mind, Mr. Wurzelbacher was famously against an economic plan that would have helped him.


  1. That is just so unbelievable, I can't believe we're all still talking about, "Joe the Plumber", what is our world coming to, right! I think I'm going to juggle my schedule oround a bit, so that I can attend! Hahaha
    Enjoyed your post :)

  2. What a hoot, huh? LOL Samuel is one of the most deluded people in America serving as de facto spokesman for the most deluded political party in America. Fitting, but frightening.

  3. I am overjoyed that Limbaugh and Joe the Plumber have seized control of the Republiscum. That can only end well for Democrats.
