Joe to Take Part in Hoe Down

Alright...it seems that some readers were not happy with my defense of Joe the Plumber getting dragged through the coals. So for all the Joe-haters and people who think he pole-vaulted over the shark, here's an interesting article for ya:

“Joe” — aka Samuel Wurzelbacher, a Holland, Ohio, pipe-and-toilet man — just signed with a Nashville public relations and management firm to handle interview requests and media appearances, as well as create new career opportunities, including a shift out of the plumbing trade into stage and studio performances.

On Tuesday, Wurzelbacher joined country music artist and producer Aaron Tippin to form a new partnership that includes booking-management firm Bobby Roberts and publicity-management concern The Press Office to field the multiple media offers he’s received over the past few weeks.

Among the requests: a possible record deal with a major label, personal appearances and corporate sponsorships.
Ye gods. There will be no further discussion of Joe.
