Sam 'Joe the Plumber' Wurzelbacher Extends His 15 Minutes of Fame in Toledo OH

The ebb and flow of Republican politics. John McCain may be out of politics this year ... while the man he made famous, Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher, is now an active member of Republican politics in Toledo OH. Wurzelbacher will be one of nearly 400 committee members who oversee the Republican Party in northwest Ohio's Lucas County. The group elects the county chairman and sets the party agenda.

Of course the man we call 'plumber' who isn't a plumber is now a weak 'politician'. The group he'll serve on meets only a few times a year to elect the county chairman and sets the party agenda. Wurzelbacher won the seat by a 38-24 vote.

He continues to milk his 15 minutes of fame. Villagers may not know ... but, Wurzelbacher wrote a book, speaks at conservative 'tea parties' and spent a few weeks as a war correspondent in the Gaza Strip.

Wurzelbacher is the kind of redneck white guy that conservatives and tea party loyalist love. This is the clown who once said,

"Illegal immigration? Put a fence up and start shooting."
I pity the fools in Toledo who elected this guy to be their leader!

I thought that Joe was done with the GOP. Oh well!

You know how politics are in the O-State. The GOP seems to be trying to use anyone and everything to regain their political footing.

Lady D - Methinks that Sam/Joe is simply addicted to fame. I suspect he will be on a reality TV show next.

Anyhow, I hope that you did you civic duty and voted this week. You will be happy to note that I voted in favor of Issue 2 that allows the folks in your town to move the casino to a different location.
