(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.
McCain probably wants to shoot himself for introducing this traitor to the public.
This guy has made a fool of himself at every turn. His initial comments and questions to PE Obama were all based on lies, He is not a plumber but a handy man (no license); he never was intending to purchase business worth $250,000 (his boss was never intending to sale and said the business at most is worth $100,000); he was working on and off and at the time wasn't even being employed by his on and off boss with the plumbing business. He has not paid taxes in 3 years and was not registered to vote. The guy is a liar with no education and is only doing whatever it takes to make as much money as possible. Fact is only the ignorant are interested in this nut job. I thought I would never say it but he is actually dumber than Sara Palin.
I will go to Gaza tomorrow to see what he is doing!!!
As a jew with family members living in israel- you don't deserve to step foot in taht country. Why are you making a joke out of this?
Hmmm...well, at least he has a job, and I would imagine a high school education. Maybe Levi should take notes?
LOL really! don't just take Palin, but bring along Levi, her son-in-law.
To quote Joe, 'it's tragic, I mean it really is'.
I couldn't agree more; however, that's my sentiment with regard to Joe heading to the Middle East.
Maybe he can get some side work to pay his taxes while he is there. Keep your head down Joey-boy.
I thought this guy's fifteen minutes of fame were over?
WELL ITS ABOUT TIME A REAL AMERICAN HERO SHOWS US WHAT REAL GUTS ARE, PILGRIM. JOE YOUR A BUFFOON. YOUR 15 MIN'S OF FAME ARE UP GET JOB SLEAZE BALL. TAKE THE TEST AND BE A CERTIFIED PLUMBER YOU NON-UNION SCAB.
Let's threaten to leave him there until both sides get along.
We'll have a peace treaty in a matter of days.
Are. You. Serious?!?
Is he just going on his own behalf? Has an NGO or gov't organization sponsored his trip? Who does this guy think he is? I mean, he isn't even a plumber!
Can this PLEASE be the last we hear of Joe "the moron"?
Talk about abusing his 15 minutes...
Am I the only one who sees some inconsistencies here? He has a worthwhile perspective on a conflict between Muslims and Israelis because he's a Christian?
But what about his $250K a year plumbing job?
Is this guy for real?
Why is he trying to get into the headlines?
It seems to me, he wil be putting the U.S. of A under a rather amusing situation.
I'm sure his reporting will be fair and balance.
man he has no shame...aren't there toilets that need to be fixed someplace...
This guy is giving Paris Hilton a run for her money when it comes to stretching out his 15 minutes of fame.
There's a lot of toilets that need attention out there. That's all he should be sent out there for.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME???????
Some people are incredibly lucky. How will this guy provide a professional assessment of the situation? I think Joe should stick with plumbing.
This guy is a joke. Please stop giving him coverage. He's had his 15 minutes of fame.
It's bad when a plumber outshines the president -elect....in fact, Obama and cronies were so worried about this guy, the minute after the "historic," meeting between the two, Obama staffers were busy rifling through local government documents to see what they could find to discredit a single American....too funny! The mighty Corrupt Democratic machine scrambling from one question from a private citizen....! What a representation of leadership that was; we're in trouble!
CNN... slow news day???
Joe the wanna be plumber, or politician, or correspondant. should be place in front of mortar fire and othe bits of white hot metal!! Take Palin along... please!
