Joe the Plumber is now going to be Joe the Israeli War Correspondent..
For all you kids going to Syracuse or other high powered journalism schools, you are wasting your money.. just become a fake plumber, owe back taxes, owe child support and become a right wing War Correspondent.. talk about the dumbing down of America.. he wants to talk to the average Uri's to get their view of the story..
The Ohio man made famous during the presidential campaign is heading to Israel as a war correspondent for the conservative Web site, pjtv.com.
Samuel J. Wurzelbacher says he'll spend 10 days covering the fighting and explaining why Israeli forces are mounting attacks against Hamas.

Just another one of their inept myths.
It's good for our country that people who actually believe in KNOWLEDGE and COMPETENCE are taking over on January 20th.
The Sanctity of the "Know-Nothing" is over.
I still get e-mails from my neo-CON friends that still push the myth that Obama is a Muslim who cavorts with terrorists. Cognitive dissonance. Even after the revelation that Joe was a fraud looking for his 15 minutes (and got much more thanks to the idiots in this country who played up to this joke (including Obama). When I saw McCain pick Palin and then go a step further by embracing Mr. Clean as some sort of symbol of the average American, I knew that Obama was going to roll easily.
More likely, it seems as though Joe will only contribute to the very problem that so many in the blogosphere have harped on for so long-namely, that Middle East reporters frequently arrive in the region with no frame of reference and/or obscene biases. Indeed, will Joe be any more capable than the average MSM correspondent of reading an Israeli newspaper; or interpreting a mosque sermon on Palestinian television; or assessing the strategic significance of a given Israeli operation or Hamas rocket-attack? It seems highly improbable, to say the least. And then there’s his prior claim that a vote for Barack Obama is a “vote for the death of Israel” - is this the kind of thing that credible reporters typically say?
Indeed, by sending Joe Wurzelbacher to the Middle East, may be taking its assault against the MSM too far. It is sending the message that anyone-which is precisely what “Joe the Plumber” came to symbolize during the 2008 presidential election-can cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict more competently than the MSM. To be sure, this is an amusing proposition. But if tested, a failure could discredit an important alternative-media outlet in the process.
