@#$%


I am so sick of hearing about Joe the plumber. Can't these guys drop it already? McCain just started a whirlwind "Joe the plumber" tour of Florida.... and now Obama is talking about Joe the CEO and all sorts of crap like that.

I mean, we appreciate them dumbing down their policies and everything- but if our presidential candidates can't think of more than one example in a presidential election that relates to the general public, maybe thats a bigger problem.

And plumbers? really? Where are all these up and coming plumbers just on the verge of becomming so popular that they are moving into a different tax bracket? I don't know if everybody has forgotten what plumbers do- but its not fun. Its not something you chose to do. Its something you do when you are SHIT OUT OF LUCK.

I think I need to stop reading the news so often.

you don't read the news too much--one count said McCain mentioned Joe the Plumber 23 times in ONE debate.
