Media Bombshell: ‘Jesus of Nazareth Lacks Carpenters License!’

If your name is Joe Six-Pack, expect to be next getting hounded by Obama-supporting reporters trying to ruin your good name. Sarah's already been through it.

Now that's what’s happening already to Joe (the Plumber) Wurzelbacher, who made the mistake of questioning Obama’s tax policies in what’s turned out to be a much more hard-hitting way than John (the Aisle-Reacher) McCain has done so far. The media hates anyone who does a better job campaigining for John McCain than McCain does himself.

So now Joe’s a target. (“Election star "Joe the Plumber" lacks license”).

CINCINNATI (Reuters) - After Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama made him into the most famous plumber in America, it turns out Joe Wurzelbacher isn't a licensed plumber after all. Oh, and his real name is Sam.

The morning after he emerged as the unexpected star of Wednesday evening's U.S. presidential debate, Samuel "Joe" Wurzelbacher of Holland, Ohio, found himself at the center of a media frenzy, with reporters camped out on his front lawn and his phone ringing off the hook.

But it wasn't long before the Association of Plumbers, Steamfitters and Service Mechanics revealed that Wurzelbacher was not a licensed member of their trade.

Gee, I wonder why it wasn’t long before the union boys chimed in? Maybe as long as it took for reporters to Google the number of the union office just on the off-chance that one of the fat union bosses might have a pre-existing loyalty to the Democratic Party.

As the Reuters reporter helpfully points out,

The plumber's union, like almost all labor groups in America, backs the Democratic Party.

"The real Joe the Plumber supports Barack Obama," Herrera said.

And what makes Herrera so confident about who the “real Joe the Plumber” supports? Maybe in Toledo all gen-u-ine union plumbers are already being safely card-checked?
