(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.
Take Palin with you and stay there!
That's the best JOKE I have heard in a long time AHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!
Israel can have him. They deserve him.
anything for money or having to get a real job
While he's there, he should visit the West Bank and Gaza. They'll welcome with open arms:)
I'd support Larry Flynt's request for 5 billion $ for the porn industry before I would support this guy !
First the porn federal aid now this 2009 is starting to look like another weird and strange year.
Republican stop jumping all over me for calling you stupid. This article speaks for itself. What a bunch of Idiots.
He is NOT A PLUMBER!!!!!! When is the media gonna refer to him properly..."Joe the unemployed but eager to be exploited puppet of the Republicans?" And since he doesn't have a real job, the position on the "Pajamas Media" staff fits perfectly since he probably walks around in his all day.
Well this is why republicans are considered stupid people . This clown inserts him self in politics. Is this the best you have to offer Joe. Well let him run for president on the repub ticket 2012. Dumb people.
How much does he charge for house calls to Gaza?

Say It Ain't So Joe....you are asking for trouble!
Is there anything CNN wont do for ratings?We should have known from day one that he was a far right wing plant.The truely stupid are taking over the planet or are they podpeople?This is getting really scarey now.
I am just happy to see our next commander in chief make peace with joe the plummer. there i hope for us as you can see as two different races meet face to face and shake hands. that handshake says a lot.
Some people love the attention of a fast life, but what does a plumber have to offer Israeli. Joe get the money and look stupid. Without a real plumber job you are really making a name for yourself. Where is Sarah and John?
jo-jo could man up and join the US Army and win the wars in iraq and afganistan for us . With the Man on his side it should be a cinch; of course he must understand the people we invaded feel the Man is on their side too. Then he could hop on over to Gaza and finish those bad guys off, whoever the bad guys are.
God I love this country, you can always find a Idiot republican somewhere. Who know maybe Joe the Plummer can bring Peace to the Middle East, God knows your Idiot sitting President couldn't. God Bless America
I blame McCain.
