Joe the Celebrity

And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think?

McCain, back in the summer, with one of his first lines of attack called Obama a celebrity. He compared Obama to Paris Hilton. He wanted Americans to think Obama was vacuous and was only around because he was famous.

Enter Joe the Plumber. McCain has turned this so-called “everyman” into an integral part of his campaign (at least for the latest news-cycles). I don’t know about you, but I have trouble relating to a guy who became famous for asking Obama a question, and a guy who’s trying to secure a country record detail. Plumber turned country singer? He’s famous for being famous. He has no qualifications or foreign policy expertise. He’s trying to cash in on his fame with a music career. Just like Paris Hilton’s musical adventures. What’s next for Joe? A DUI and a reality TV show?

I can’t relate to Joe the Plumber. Maybe I’m just not a real American.
