Sounds like Joe the Plumber is not too happy about McCain dragging him unwillingly to the spotlight to use him in his campaign. As we know the spotlight exposed all kinds of embarrassing facts about Joe's private life.

Joe the Plumber says John McCain 'really screwed my life up,' 'I don't owe him s---'

"McCain was trying to use me. I happened to be the face of middle Americans. It was a ploy."

Wurzelbacher was appearing at an event benefiting a Pennsylvania Republican state representative on Saturday.

"John McCain is no public servant," Wurzelbacher told the gathering, Detrow reports.

He then reportedly went on to announce that his enmity towards the 2008 GOP presidential candidate is so high that he no longer backs Sarah Palin -- because she is supporting the Arizona Republican’s re-election bid.

Joe the "Plumber" should shut up and get over it. He is just trying to stir controversy so he can sue later on. :-\

It was a terrible attempt by the Republican Party to connect with blue-dogs. Hopefully all of the "joe the plumbers" out there realize which party truly represents them.

Is he still around? I thought we were rid of him and he went back to fixing pipes and toilets.

We do. The Democrats don't represent up on anything. They USED to but not anymore. The Republicans don't either but at least they won't raise my taxes or take my guns.

The liberal media didn't care about Joe until he said something negative about a Republican.

Whatever....

We don't really know all the facts, do we. Amazing how quick people are to judge. How would YOU like it if some politician used you.
