Did "Joe the Plumber" Seem Too Convenient?

It was a great story for McCain, but it may backfire.
Technically, "Joe" turns out not to be a plumber.
He has no license.
The hypothetical "business" would seem to be a two man unlicensed plumbing/handyman operation.
He (Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher) isn't likely to be earning $250,000 profit any year soon
unless he gets it from gullible TV booking agents paying for interviews.
Am I too suspicious of politicians?
Or, have I just interviewed too many of them in Washington?

"If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, .....
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son! - Kipling

"If you can keep your head when all around you are in panic;
you may not understand what's really happening." - jm
