To add insult to injury... Joe the Plumber heads to Gaza!
Apparently, the credentials for Foreign correspondent have fallen sharply these days ...
Election superstar celebrity Joe the Plumber (who turned out not to even be a licensed plumber) is heading to Gaza to cover the violence there and -surprise- the Israeli officials are pretty excited to have him.
(CNN) – Joe Wurzelbacher: Plumber. Campaign celebrity. Foreign correspondent?
‘Joe the Plumber’ is headed overseas to try his hand at covering the conflict in Gaza, Wurzelbacher’s publicist Thomas Tabback confirmed to CNN Wednesday.
Wurzelbacher plans to spend 10 days in Israel reporting on the conflict for pjtv.com, a Web site run by conservative media outlet Pajamas Media.
The famous plumber will be focusing on the Israeli perspective on the situation. "It's tragic, I mean it really is,” Wurzelbacher told CNN affiliate WNWO “I don't say that in any little way. It's very tragic, but at the same time what are the Israeli people supposed to do.”
Wurzelbacher told WNWO he’s not worried about the potential dangers of his new gig. "Being a Christian I'm pretty well protected by God I believe. That's not saying he's going to stop a mortar for me, but you gotta take the chance,” he told the CNN affiliate.
“Israeli officials are very excited to have him,” Tabback told CNN.
If I hear one more person talking about "Elitism" of bloggers .. I'm going to send Joe to ruin his plumbing!
