Joe the Plumber Goes to Washington
Samuel “Joe the Plumber” Wurzelbacher is in Washington today through the weekend, having spent the morning at Grover Norquist’s Wednesday breakfast, taken a quick smoke break, and lunched with conservative journalists before a series of events at CPAC.
The most important question: Is he still working as a plumber? “For friends and family, absolutely,” Wurzelbacher said. “I work for PJTV – they sent me to Israel.” He’s also selling a book, Joe the Plumber: Fighting for the American Dream, co-written with Thomas Tabback, who sat behind the table at the luncheon interjecting occasional insights.
“I miss plumbing tremendously,” Wurzelbacher said. “I miss working, building things … making things with my hands.”
