Congratulations to Joe the Plumber, who has finally been elected to public office! Well, not public office exactly, but certainly Republican office. Eh? Eh?
Wurzelbacher won one of nearly 400 seats on the Republican Party committee for northwest Ohio's Lucas County, the Associated Press reports.
The group only meets a few times a year to elect the county chairman and sets the party agenda.
Finally, he has earned the unbridled adulation of the GOP that he has enjoyed these past couple years. Him and the other nearly 400 Lucas County seat holders.
You're all the greatest American heroes!

I'm really sorry that you missed the teabag parties that happened all across the country last weekend. What a bummer that they were scheduled for the exact same day as Family Fun Gun Day at the local Drive 'n Shoot. Isn't that always how it happens.
Anyway, don't fret too much. There'll be more teabag parties. Lots and lots of them. But, in case you're wondering what you missed, here's a video someone was nice enough to put together…
Can you believe that couple had the exact same not-racist sign as you? Maybe it's just as well that you didn't go. That could have been a really embarrassing situation.

Sarah Palin is hitting the campaign trail for John McCain, and she's not the only familiar face from 2008: famous pseudo-plumber Joe- hang on, sorry.
I forgot. Joe the Plumber hates John McCain for giving him a livelihood screwing his life up. So now, with McCain's Senate campaign in trouble, Joe the Plumber(ish) would like to make one thing absolutely clear…
Wurzelbacher, who appeared at a tea party rally of 400 conservative activists in Phoenix on Sunday, said he won't be backing anyone in the Arizona senate race. "I don't want to cloud the issue and create a lot of drama," he said.
That's right. No issue-clouding. No drama-creating.
Why else would he be at a tea party rally?

Having failed at stand-up comedy Joe the Plumber is back, endorsing Sam Roher for governor of Pennsylvania, and this time he's angry… at John McCain and Sarah Palin.
Here's the scoop from Pennsylvania reporter Scott Detrow, who snagged a few minutes with the man formerly known as Wurzelbacher. Not that anyone knew him then…
Wurzelbacher touched on several different points during his speech [for Roher], and many of them were surprising. He said he doesn't support Sarah Palin anymore. Why? Because she's backing John McCain's re-election effort. "John McCain is no public servant," he told the room, calling the 2008 Republican nominee a career politician.
I pointed out he'd just be plain old Sam Wurzelbacher of Ohio — Joe the Plumber wouldn't exist — without McCain. His response was blunt. "I don't owe him s–. He really screwed my life up, is how I look at it."
Wurzelbacher said, "McCain was trying to use me. I happened to be the face of middle Americans. It was a ploy."
The face of middle Americans! That's right, I'd almost forgotten that's what Joe the Plumber is.

From The CC Insider…
Wednesday night, the Funniest Celebrity in Washington contest went underway, and all of Washington's most famous celebrities people who are sometimes on C-SPAN competed to prove they are the funniest least boring person in Washington. The big winner of the night was Austan Goolsbee, an economist for the Obama administration. There's video of him yucking it up over here, but first Joe Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber of New Lows (don't quit my day job, me), also performed stand-up! And there's video!
I'm not saying Joe's material is awful. I am just saying, as a plumber, shouldn't he be cleaning up shit rather than performing it?
