"Joe the Plumber" Becomes "Joe the War Correspondent"

Samuel Wurzelbacher, better known to most as "Joe the Plumber," is heading for a war zone. He is, according to the conservative website, going to Gaza to cover the ongoing conflict there.

He is, according to reports, going to spend 10 days there. He says he intends to get the often-lost, he says, Israel reason behind the offensive against Hamas.

He told WNWO-TV in Toledo that he wants to let Israel's "'Average Joes' share their story." I can't believe the guy saying that he's doing his civic duty. Please, he's trying to extend to 15 minutes of fame, which have way been used up, to make some money.

If he hadn't been picked up on by John McCain in a last-ditch effort, he would simply be an unlicensed plumber who would, in reality, do better under the Obama tax plan.
