Joe the Bummer signs a book deal
Joe the Bummer, aka Samuel Wurzelbacher, has signed a book deal. His book, which will be co-written with novelist Thomas Tabback, will be called "Joe the Plumber -- Fighting for the American Dream." The word "for" is apparently not intended as a joke.
The book will be released by Pearlgate Publishing on December 1, 2008. Yes, that's two weeks from now. Apparently, plumbers with no plumbing license and a washed-up political career not only have lots of time on their hands but are very fast writers. Unless Joe plans to just dictate and let Mr. Tabback, the novelist, do the actual writing.
Nah. Joe has more integrity than that, doesn't he? And he can articulate himself just fine, can't he?
Glaring evidence of Joe's integriticity, his articulacity, and his sensation of humor can be seen in this excerpt from his recent interview with Fox Noise:
I am not going to a conglomerate. That way we actually can get the economy jump started. Like there is five publishing companies in Michigan. There's a couple down in Texas. They are small ones that can handle like 10 or 15,000 copies. I can go to a big one that could handle a million or two. But they don't need the help. They are already rich. So that's spreading the wealth to me.
Ha ha ha ha. Get it? Spreading the wealth? That Joe - always the jokester.
Hey, if enough people buy Joe's book, maybe he'll be able to pay off his tax lien!
