Irony:

Designate Joe, a Plumber, as "everyman."
Give Joe, an "everyman," national publicity. Not as an everyman, but as Joe.

You couldn't very well give him publicity as an everyman because the moment he started getting publicity, he ceased to be an everyman.

"Joe the Plumber" - Does not have a plumbing license, did not pay his taxes last year, is not a registered voter, is related to the Keatings (Big scandal involving McCain), is definitely a Republican plant.

So, I would suggest watering poor little Joe so he can grow to be a big Republican plant!

I knew that he was practicing business illegaly and evading taxes, but I didn't know he was tied to the Keating scandal -- or did you mean he's genetically related to the Keatings?

Spill! Please!

As near as I can piece it together:

Charles Keating's son-in-law is Robert Wurzelbacher, who lives in Cincinnati. Joe The Plumber is Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, who also lives in Cincinnati. People speculated a week ago that RW was SJW's father, based on the names, location, and some other circumstantial evidence.

I haven't seen any definitive evidence that Joe is Keating's grandson-in-law, but I haven't really been looking for it, either. And it's crazy enough, in this election season, to be true.

Think quantum physics. A sufficiently powerful observation of an ordinary person collapses his wavefunction and renders him unrepresentative. *grins* The process is easier with some.
