McCain throws Joe the Plumber under the bus for Russ the Plumber in Missouri! No Joke.

"The campaign is holding a conference call today with Russ Deker, an individual the McCain camp is calling a Missouri Joe the Plumber.


You can't make this shit up. Joe the Plumber fizzled so the McCain camp found Russ Deker, a plumber in Missouri, to be the McCain campaign poster plumber.

3. Once again, Palin didn't get the memo. She's still talking about "Joe."

4. What do you do when your campaign's going down the toilet?
Find a plumber, of course.

6. And if the first one doesn't have a license, find one who does. Gee, maybe we should send this
exchange to Letterman.

5. Perhaps they should consider calling him "Russ the Plumber"..
What the FUCK is it with guys named Joe? If being a "JOE" is so damn great... then FANTASTIC! Vote for JOE THE SENATOR SOON TO BE VP.

If not, drop the "joe" stick.. and start focusing on issues instead of plumbers.

9. I think "Russ the Republican" is most accurate..
why offend plumbers & roto-rooters around the country, when Republican attacks it at the core? :)
