Joe The Plumber : The Autobiography

Joe the Plumber is, along with some other guy, writing a book. Mr. The Plumber's book, due December 1st, will be 300 pages long and divided into two sections. The first will be Joe's life, his journey and his rise to accidental celebrity (26 pages... seriously, is there anything about this guy that can't fit in 26 pages) and the balance being a rehash of the same old 'conservative' bullshit that's been spewed by every Republican candidate in the US since 1980.

PhotobucketJoe the Plumber, a.k.a. Samuel J. Wurzelbacher, the Ohio voter who became a celebrity in the last, heady weeks of the election, has signed a book deal with small, Texas-based publisher PearlGate Publishing. Joe the Plumber: Fighting for the American Dream, as it will be called, will "address Mr. Wurzelbacher’s ideas about American values," according to the Times, and be co-written with Thomas N. Tabback, the author of a ridiculous-sounding Christian novel also published by PearlGate. The Times cites an interview with Fox News in which JTP said he could have gone with a larger publisher, “But they don’t need the help. They are already rich. So that’s spreading the wealth to me.” The book will be published December 1, an amazingly quick turnaround time, which indicates that probably Joe the Plumber doesn't have a problem spreading the wealth to China, either.

I know I'm going to get this book from at least three people this Christmas. It won't be funny. All it will prove is that the people who give it to me have too much money on their hands.

Yeah, I'd really rather have a gift card.
