Joe the Varied Tradesman

Joe the War Correspondent, nee Joe the Plumber, is now putting on yet another hat: Joe the Political Consultant!
Fresh off his stint as a war correspondent in Gaza, Joe the Plumber is now doing political strategy with Republicans.

When GOP congressional aides gather Tuesday morning for a meeting of the Conservative Working Group, Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher – more commonly known as Joe the Plumber — will be their featured guest.
I guess having failed to connect to "Joe Sixpack" during the election, the GOP figures maybe he'll vote for them if they put him in charge of the party.

Honestly, I'm hard-pressed to think of anything that indicates a party in greater disarray, totally devoid of ideas and anything resembling seriousness and competency, than the GOP turning to Joe the Fucking Random Douchebag as a political consultant. Nothing could inspire more confidence in their ability to lead than their patent inability to distinguish between a qualified strategist and a campaign prop.

I'll give my pal Steve the final (hilarious) word on this one:
One can only assume that the Conservative Working Group was dazzled by Wurzelbacher work as a pseudo-war correspondent for a right-wing website. He did, after all, insist that journalists shouldn't be allowed to cover a war, in part because reporters "make a big deal" over events on the ground. Wurzelbacher added, "I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting."

Why wouldn't Republican staffers want to seek guidance on economic policy from a visionary of this stature?
Welcome to your nadir, GOP.
