If a tree falls in the forest and no one’s there to hear it…can you call yourself a lumberjack?
Such was nearly the case for Samuel Wurlzebacher, AKA Joe the Plumber/Joe the foreign correspondent/Joe the country singer/Joe the GOP adviser/Joe the author who recently appeared at a Border’s Book Store in our nation’s capitol, where he’d been booked to promote his latest and only book, Joe the Plumber: Fighting for the American Dream, co-written with Thomas N. Tabback.
Mr. Wurlzebacher addressed a gaggle of 11 or so rabid spectators from a podium, using a microphone so even those in the back could hear. Sam/Joe reportedly sold/signed 5 books before calling it a night. Excusing himself, he thanked attendees, explaining that while he’d like to linger longer, he had to pick up some caulk and get home before his putty hardened.
Ever controversial, Sam/Joe the hyphenate’s rapidly written tome apparently reveals some disparaging opinions about John McCain. An audio interview describing them appeared on YouTube.
