Joe the plumber


Joe "the plumber" Wurzelbacher of Toledo, Ohio, seen above watching the debate as his home in this Associated Press photo, was mentioned 26 times during the last of the presidential debates between Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain. (The other Joe, as in Biden, was mentioned six times).

Wurzelbacher is expected to make more than $250,000, which would make him a target for Obama's tax plan if he were to become president.

He refused to tell news outlets who will be his choice for president after the debates.

This raises important questions:

* What about the rest of the voters?

* What happened to Joe Six-Pack?

But most importantly,

* Why didn't I choose plumbing as a profession?
