Joe the scam artist

Now Joe Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, is pitching for some anti-tax outfit which promises that you can “vote the IRS out” by making a 99-cent phone call.

A desperate attempt to make a few bucks off the tail end of his 15 minutes of fame? Nah.

On a completely unrelated topic, does anyone else remember the proto-feminist Josephine the Plumber from the Comet cleanser commercials of the 1960s?
