Joe The Plumber Takes A Crack At Government Work.

From USA Today:

Remember Joe the Plumber? He's Joe the Politician now.
The guy who became an overnight sensation of the 2008 presidential campaign ascended to political office Tuesday, winning election as a Republican committeeman for northwest Ohio's Lucas County.
"Joe," whose real name is Samuel Wurzelbacher, was was caught on tape asking pointed questions about Barack Obama's tax policy when the then-Democratic nominee was canvassing his Ohio neighborhood -- and promptly got adopted as a political mascot by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Obama's opponent.
Apparently, the close encounter with politics whetted Wurzelbacher's appetite for more.
He has written a book and hit the political speaking circuit, including "Tea Party" rally in Cincinnati last month.
The Associated Press reports that Wurzelbacher won a spot on the Lucas County Republican committee by a 38-23 vote in his suburban Toledo precinct. That makes him one of nearly 400 committee members who set the agenda and pick a chairman for the local party.

Well, it looks like Lucas County will now be safe from all that elite, Obama-style socialism we keep hearing about. After all, a barely-literate, unlicensed plumber is on the job, fitting squarely in the sweet spot for GOP candidates nationwide.

BeltwayBlips: vote it up!
