    Joe the Plumber: McCain 'appalled me'

    Joe Wurzelbacher lashed out Tuesday at former GOP presidential nominee John McCain, the man who made Wurzelbacher famous as “Joe the Plumber.”

    Wurzelbacher told conservative radio host Glenn Beck that he felt “dirty” after “being on the campaign trail and seeing some of the things that take place.”

    Recalling a conversation he had with McCain about the $700 billion financial industry bailout in September, Wurzelbacher said: “When I was on the bus with him, I asked him a lot of questions about the bailout because most Americans did not want that to happen.”

    “I asked him some pretty direct questions,” he continued. “Some of the answers you guys are gonna receive — they appalled me, absolutely. I was angry. In fact, I wanted to get off the bus after I talked to him.”

    Asked why he didn’t leave McCain’s campaign if he was “appalled” by the candidate, Wurzelbacher said, “honestly, because the thought of Barack Obama as president scares me even more.”

    While Wurzelbacher was critical of McCain during the interview, he had nothing but praise for his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. “Sarah Palin is absolutely the real deal,” he said.[/QUOTE]

    While it may be bad form to talk so negatively about McCain, he's absolutely dead on with the way McCain handled the bailout. It's the main reason I didn't vote for him, and old Joe had me until this line:

    "Sarah Palin is absolutely the real deal"

    Ugh, Christ. We'll see about that.

    Joe the Plumber will do anything to stay in the limelight. This guy is a fraud and I posted this because he is an absolute joke. He is paying people to make sure this crap gets into the papers.

    Joe the Plumber was a transparent fraud from the start. Designed to get blue-collar white guys back in McBush's corner for the election. I don't know what sounds more ridiculous, him saying McCain was "appalling" or describing a national joke like Sarah Palin as "the real deal."
