Joe the Plumber grabs for the golden toilet ring

Seems like Joe has gotten a whiff of stardom and found that he likes it.

The once shy but articulate man with a dream to own a plumbing company turned into a McPalin poster boy recently. Now Joe thinks he got something special beyond being used by ideologues. He's considering a run for Congress in 2010 on the Republican ticket. On conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham's show, Joe announced his interest.

I don't have any problem with the common man getting involved in politics, but I was sorta hoping that Joe and his thoughtful questions of Obama would kinda just fade away.

I actually felt bad for him being dragged out by the media and having his background (tax records and all) put out for show. Now, I can see he was secretly loving it. Like a reality star contestant that got kicked off the island, he's going to stoke it for all it's worth.

Joe the Plumber salad dressing, anyone? I'm sure he'll make an excellent VP for Palin's next run.
