Republicans are digging in their heels about the stimulus plan. They are taking shots at the tax woes of Democratic political appointees. They are indulging in a little political copycat strategy with the recent appointment of the first black chairman of the Republican National Committee, Michael Steele. And they are seeking economic advice from…Joe the Plumber?
That’s right, folks. Sam Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the (unlicensed) Plumber,” “Joe the Gaza War Correspondent,” “Joe the Country Singer,” and “Joe the Author with a Ghostwriter” (yup, he already has a book), is in Washington this week to offer his thoughts on the economic stimulus plan to GOP Congressional aides.
Does anybody else feel like they are in the middle of a big historical punch line?
