Real name Joe Worzelbacher, could he be a McCain shill? Dailykos suspects so.
For starters, according to Ben Smith, he’s not registered to vote.
I have no idea who Ben Smith is. Probably some Liberal shill, knowing dailykos.
It also seems odd that he just happens to be buying a business that would earn exactly the amount of money that would qualify it to be a McCain campaign talking point — $250,000. Even more intriguing, McCain-land said they had never spoken with Joe before, but also made the following statement to Ben Smith.
Yet…they also had his phone number.
Not to mention that Joe… was totally on message for McCain…
Bottom-line: it’s not entirely clear what the real story of Joe The Plumber is. But it is entirely clear that he’s not just some undecided voter. He supports McCain, and the McCain campaign sure seems to support him.
Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised. It seems precisely the kind of trickery that Republicans would employ.
