    'Joe The Plumber' Describes His New Union Job

    Samuel Wurzelbacher's encounter with Barack Obama gave some material to Republicans who were eager to brand the Illinois senator a socialist. Today, the man better-known as "Joe The Plumber" has himself a union job.

    It might seem like an odd fate for Wurzelbacher, whose status as a mini celebrity in the 2008 presidential race paved the way for a book deal and a failed congressional bid. A quick scan of his Facebook page makes it clear that he's still the same guy who said last year that America needs a "white Republican president again."

    I'm not sure which is funnier...

    That he works for a company that was bailed out, or that he's a union guy now.

    Either way, you can't make this **** up.

    The man said unkind things about Obama that caused some embarrassment to the president. Obviously he should be in prison and if not should be harassed and threatened if he goes in public.

    Obama established a rule for IRS retaliation against small business owners that speak against legislation named after him, "ObamaCare." Isn't it time to outlaw any derogatory or negative statements about him? Many countries have such laws. Shouldn't Obama sign an executive order prohibiting anyone speaking against him, not just small business owners?

    Well, considering that Illinois isn't a Right to Work state he doesn't have a lot of choice on the union thing is he wants to work.

    I thought he lived in Ohio?

    In the end, why does anybody still care enough about this loser to attack or defend him? Seriously? He was a nobody who became a political pawn and it turns out he's a racist (of course, it's not racist unless you're a libbo. I forgot). I knew McCain's campaign was doomed when they brought Sam the not actually a plumber on the bus and the campaign spokesman said "America needs his wisdom."

    What's that line that Republicans like to use? Move? Leave? Go to a place where people like you are welcome? Guess he's probably far more comfortable in Illinois' socialist chaos than all those right to work wonder states like Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. All of which are booming economically right now.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Could be. Ohio isn't right to work either.
