    Joe the Plumber: McCain 'appalled me'

    Joe Wurzelbacher lashed out Tuesday at former GOP presidential nominee John McCain, the man who made Wurzelbacher famous as “Joe the Plumber.”

    Wurzelbacher told conservative radio host Glenn Beck that he felt “dirty” after “being on the campaign trail and seeing some of the things that take place.”

    Recalling a conversation he had with McCain about the $700 billion financial industry bailout in September, Wurzelbacher said: “When I was on the bus with him, I asked him a lot of questions about the bailout because most Americans did not want that to happen.”

    “I asked him some pretty direct questions,” he continued. “Some of the answers you guys are gonna receive — they appalled me, absolutely. I was angry. In fact, I wanted to get off the bus after I talked to him.”

    Asked why he didn’t leave McCain’s campaign if he was “appalled” by the candidate, Wurzelbacher said, “honestly, because the thought of Barack Obama as president scares me even more.”

    While Wurzelbacher was critical of McCain during the interview, he had nothing but praise for his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. “Sarah Palin is absolutely the real deal,” he said.
  2. who is mccain? :D
  3. ....and we are starting to see why (Chicago brand politics!)!!!
  4. joe who?
  5. Desperately holding on by his fingernails. 15 minutes has been up over a month ago.

  6. And hoping for position with Palin connections.
  7. He didn't leave the campaign because he knew he could cash in big time!

    Doesn't matter if McCain was the devil thats some big time cash coming your way.
  8. Not only is this guy an idiot, he's a backstabber.

    His attempt to throw John McCain under the bus will come back to haunt him as everyone will see it as the transparent ruse it is; to cozy up to Palin, whom he thinks has a future in the GOP, while sullying McCain, whom he thinks does not.

    This Joe the asshole guy was ripped a new asshole by Shepard Smith on Fox News when he ventured into the realm of foreign policy (an area of his expertise, apparently).

    The American People will never trust or like this backstabbing, grandstanding, disloyal moron.

    His 15 minutes of fame are up.

    Good luck with the country music recording jig, Joe the douche.
  9. The "real deal?" Or a two-dimensional carboard cutout non-deal? Poor Joe only sees the fancy plumbing.

    The problem with assholes like J the P is that they never know when they've worn out their welcome, and they keep coming back. Look at how Newt Gingrich resurfaced this year. Even the GOP shuddered at the thought of putting Newtie on their ticket.
