I watched a segment on MSNBC this morning and they showed each candidate pander to Joe Plumber bringing up his name maybe a dozen times.
Do we take Joe Plumber seriously?
Will future Joe Plumbers give up their dreams and wait for more successful people redistribute their wealth to them? That's the gist of what I was hearing this morning.

There'll be people writing in his name come November lol.
The funny (?sad) thing about this whole thing is that it's an apples and oranges comparison. When Joe asked his question, he said I'm about to "buy a business that makes $250K, $275K per year"
Was he talking about the net profits or the gross revenues of the business????
If it is gross folks, before expenses what he reports on his schedule C ( profit) after deductions will be less (assuming he's a sole proprietor).....He will be taxed on that, not the gross of the business.....
Assuming he grows the business and the profits top $250K, then he will be taxed at the higher rate. Both sides are using this to their advantage without identifying that they may have been talking about different things....
or so it seemed....

When McCain and the GOP sit down on Nov 5, and analyze why he lost, Joe will be a perfect example.
Talking points don't win elections. Impressions do, especially in these troubled times. McCain has run an unfocused, scattershot campaign since his convention. Whether or not you agree with Obama, he's been calm, on-message, and disciplined , as all the debates showed. In short, he's been presidential. That's why I, an independent undecided voter, have decided that Obama is the better choice to get our country back on track.
I do feel sorry for him for the huge hole he has to dig out of, and pray he'll surround himself with the right people from both parties to correct the course. It's clear to me that McCain and Palin aren't those people.
Now we are going to have to listen to Joe the Plumber crap for 3 weeks.
This is so perfect for Sarah Linthead's crowd.
Blame your guy, he said it. The camera was supposed to be off, I doubt Obama would have made such a mistake had he known the camera was on. He should have assumed it was. This is his first major mistake in the election. Lets see how much it costs him. If he wins, we will find out how much it costs us.
