(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 liar, what happened to buying the plumbing business? oh yeah it came out that he was not telling the truth anyway... for the sake of all americans to not be mislead by this liar anymore, hopefully, he will not come back to the usa.
Focusing on the Israeli perspective???? Isn't that what the media is for??????
want to go Joe?
Joe the moron.
Please, please, please, may we never hear from you ever again.
@ Dan the Man
The only pipe this moron fixes is filled with crack.
"The Jews have made their position quite clear: Stop firing rockets into Isreal and Isreal will stop trashing Gaza. How hard is that?"
Maybe Israelis should let the Palestinians have COMPLETE control of Gaza. Maybe they should let them control the land, water, borders and airspace. The fact is these people have no real rights. Get a clue!
ALL I WANT TO KNOW IS ARE WE GONNA CALL HIM SOME SORT OF HERO IF HE GETS HIS BUTT SHOT OFF?
Actually, Joe the Liar will fit in real nice with rest of the Zionist controlled media scum. Used again... sigh!
No wonder I'm depress reading all this crap from CNN.
THE QUESTION IS–Can Sarah Palin see Hamas from her house?
No doubt he'll be accompanied by an entourage of cable news reporters dutifully reporting his every utterance. Here we go again.
Wouldn't be surprised if this opportunistic fraud fell victim to 'friendly' fire.
Good Job CNN
Palin – Wurzelbacher for 2012! They are both in some type of religious stupor and seem perfect for the RNC.
Protected by God. Yea right Joe. If this is your first trip to Israel and over to that region you will be growing up real quick. Keep reminding yourself you are "protected by God".
I call him a phoney! Where is he getting all the funds to do this. I also think he is a con man. I don't know why we have to constantly see him and Palin in the news. I guess the media does't get it that they are pandering to two egotists that are about as stupid and they come!
As far as Flint and his wanting a bail out. That's the joke of the month!
He's skimmed money out of that business for years. Why doesn't he just retire and go away. Preferably with Joe and Sarah! Better yet if Joe the Plumber still owes back taxes why doesn't he pay them first! We all have. Idiot! Another chapter in the political circus.
As if that idiot has any legitimate credentials to "cover" ANYTHING! Why don't they just send Trig Palin?
Sickening, this idiot and his backers need to go away. Just brought back reminders of McCain and Palin. Sickening!
Did no one tell him his 15 minutes have expired already?
So many ignorant comments on here. Too be expected from the media driven sheep of the USA. No one cares about Joe the plumber. No one cares about Paulin. Stop feeding us articles about these people. Also stop feeding us dooms day reports day after day. No wonder they call CNN the communist news network. It's our word or no ones. I'll be shocked if this comment actually gets posted as you people usually filter out anything that doesn't agree with your agenda. You people hate fox news? You should be hating this place as well because all they try to feed you is dooms day scenarios one day then puppy dogs and rainbows the next and filter out anyone who disagree's with them.
I heard he's set to end the conflict in Gaza and bring peace to the middle east. This information can be found on Bush's state dept. wed site.
Did Sarah and Joe get to make the cover of hustler too?
You have got to be kidding me? So he is qualified to be a reporter, huh? Well, I guess it's not like it's a profession where you need a license or anything.
Time for another stupid CNN opinion poll
God Bless Israel.
