  •  Joe the Plumber is a prime example of someone (4+ / 0-)

    who would rather make a living bitching about stuff rather than actually working to make a living.  Being a Tea Party celebrity is much more fun than actually running a successful business, so why should Joe the non-Plumber actually work for a living while he has his twenty minutes of fame.  Show business is so much more exciting.

    •  Joe the Plumber was without a doubt (0+ / 0-)

      a complete fraud. This was a guy who wasn't a real plumber.  He had no license. He'd been sued a few times over small debts.  Didn't own any property in Northwest Ohio.  This is all internet stuff.  His family was connected to the Cincinnati Keatings. Sounds wacky, but all signs point to a total plant.

      It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. --FDR
