(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.
Joe The Plumber is now a foreign policy expert? Hey Joe, your 15 minutes were up 10 minutes ago!
Make him go away...PLEASE!!!
Joe the plumber should get a real job and stay out of something he knows nothing about they don't need some mainstreet clown from the US over there shooting off his mouth.
Can we get back to the porn bailout?
Joe the Who?
Oooohhhh, right, that bald-headed dimwit from Ohio. I can't wait to hear his reports. "Uh ... there's bombs and stuff, and ... uh ... Obama's a socialist ... and all these here people are wearin' rags on their head and stuff, 'cuz they're Islamists and hate freedom."
What is he going to do, report on the state of their toilets?
Well my god what is the world coming too a lying non plumber who owes taxes is going to the Middle East what the f is going on???
Well dang at least he has a job.
Why is this dude still even a topic of discussion for the media...?
Does anyone see the irony in sending the same guy who made those arcane comments about Israel, that even he couldn't later explain, to cover the conflict in Gaza?
This shows us what kind of standards the conservative media has...NONE WHATSOEVER!
What? Why? Something tells me that the Israeli arent "happy to have him" What is the point? And to say that he is only going to see the Israeli perspective says a lot about him. THIS IS JUST PLAIN STUPID
And the stupidity continues...
This is on the same level as Larry Flynt looking for a bail out.
Ask your parents or grandparents what silly things people did in the 30's to divert their attention from the Great Depression.
I hope he gets eaten by a camel.
Mario and Luigi are the only famous plumbers that should be off saving the world.
If this guy really is "Joe the Plumber", shouldn't he be doing some actual plumbing? Fix a pipe, you hack!
Yes Joe, Go....ha ha ha!!
Send this clown to negotiate directly with Hamas. Either he succeeds or they kill him. Other way, we win!
So does this mean we can finally quit calling him a plumber?
...not that I'd exactly call him a journalist...
Would this guy just go away already? At least Sarah Palin gives us something of substance to talk about.
What an idiot...Well I bet the GOP are just proud as peacocks. Wave your flags some now!
What an idiot, and how stupid of CNN to think we would think this is news! This guy is not a plumber, even though he decided to work as one. He is not a foreign correspondent and taking a plane to a war zone does not make him one any more than my walking into a surgery makes me a surgeon.
Oh my God, who does this man think he is....boy, he sure has racked up some credential's since his side lost the election!! Wow, he's now a reporter and like anyone gives a toss about him and his latest stupid idea.
I'm sure the world will be watching with bated breath as this highly prized reporter brings us all the latest news from Israel....Joe, just stick to your "draino and plumber's tape"!!!
That publicist sounds like a giant tool too. “Israeli officials are very excited to have him,” Tabback told CNN. Yeahhhh...in the midst of war they're excited to have this guy come over and report.
"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.” Way to sum up a life and death issue Joe..."what are they supposed to do?!!?! gaaaahawwww!"
If he loses a limb or two while bumbling his way through ignorant commentary, he'll come home as "Joe the Hero."
