As Details of His Personal Life "Leak" Out, Plumber Joe Gets a Lesson in National Media Scrutiny

Plumber Joe has discovered what national media scrutiny means. Just hours after both candidates catapulted him to 5-minutes of fame status during the final debate, the media have uncovered details of his personal life and placed them into public discourse. So what have we learned about Joe? Well, first, it turns out that Joe is not even "Joe." His name is Samuel J. Wurzelbacher. I assume, however, that the "J" is short for some version of "Joe." Also, we now know that he owes $1,200 in back local taxes -- which perhaps explains some of his sensitivity on the issue of tax increases. Finally (the clincher) Wurzelbacher does not have a plumbing license. Joe the Plumber is not even a plumber. Will he now face a fine for practicing the plumbing trade without a license? We shall see.

Stay tuned for more developments in this unfolding story. Knowing more about Joe will certainly help you make the right choice on November 4, just as having information about Obama Girl informed so many voters' decisions during the Democratic primaries. I am happy to see that the media continue to probe the most compelling issues of our time.

If only the "national media," that OMSM, ou mean, had the stones to put as much passion into uncovering Barack Obama.

But, then, they cannot since he's their creation.

So they must destroy or invalidate or try to invalidate anything that poses a threat.

The OMSM do not realize it quite yet, but coming for them is a serious, but figurative, a** whipping.

They no longer have the right to be called "news" organizations.

They are simply political extensions of the liberal and leftist coalition very wrongly called the "Democratic Party."

Hello. I think having the media worship any party - Republican or Democrat -- is a problem. Not so long ago, they were literally "in the tank" for Bush, so this is not an issue of a leftwing media conspiracy. In many ways, the media like "star power," or people who just seem more popular. They want ratings, and ratings mean popularity. But they often sacrifice objectivity in order to have access to power. But this problem did not start with Obama's success.

It’s really good to know about this. Looks really interesting!!!

Of course many Berkeley homeowners can save some money by handling the small problems themselves such as replacing a gasket under a faucet stem or unclogging a kitchen drain but it’s also important to know when it’s time to call in a professional plumber. While plumbing isn’t necessarily difficult, much of it is beyond the abilities and knowledge of the average homeowner and a botched job can end up costing you way more than if you had called an experienced plumber in the first place. Choosing the right Berkeley plumber can mean the difference between a positive outcome and a complete disaster, so it’s important use care when selecting a plumber.
