Douche Bag Of The Week: Joe The Plumber

Joe The Plumber held a book signing the other night to sell his new book. From an article on The Washington Post:

Joe the Plumber (no longer a plumber; first name actually Samuel) popped into our town yesterday evening to sell his new book and to remind people that he's still a plain and simple guy. Mission accomplished, on at least one of his missions.

About 11 people wandered into the rows of seats set up hopefully in the basement of a downtown Border's bookstore to hear Joe speak. Joe addressed them from behind a lectern and with a microphone, but that seemed unnecessarily formal.

Wurzelbacher was scheduled to speak and sign books for three hours, but the Joe Show was over in 55 minutes. Total copies of "Joe the Plumber" sold: five.
Joe, and his five admirers, are my Douche Bags of the Week.

Didn't get it then. Still don't get it now.
