The final debate is over in the presidential election and after receiving more publicity than any plumber has a right to, except those who used to work for Richard Nixon, Joe Wurzelbacher, now known the world over as “Joe The Plumber” has decided he’s going to open up a third party candidacy in the waning days of the 2008 election.
Declaring his candidacy, Joe the Plumber said, “Neither of these guys gets it and when they were talking to me through the camera it made me feel downright creepy. My phone hasn’t stopped ringing. Since I can’t make my American Dream work, I might as well do what everybody else does these days and ride this wave while I can. I figure I’ll get some write in votes, create some more publicity, and that will lead to talk show appearances, then a book, and maybe a movie. Besides, plumbing is a messy business.“
When asked he if agreed with either of the two candidates on their economic policies, Joe the Plumber answered, “Nope. Neither gets it. Neither do I. Just like them, I just want my piece of the pie. These guys don’t have specific policies, so I’m not going to come up with any either.”
Meanwhile “Bob the Builder” said he was disappointed that he wasn’t mentioned in the debate, along with his wife, “Nancy the Nurse.”
