Joe the Plumber, actually Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, became an instant celebrity when John McCain mentioned him (several times) in the third presidential debate for the 2008 election. Apparently "Joe" asked Barack Obama's plan to tax people making over $250,000 because he was about to buy a plumbing business that makes about that much money. After the debate he soon became the poster child for the American workingman (or woman) who would get taxed a greater amount on his hard-earned income. Wurzelbacher now has his own agents and is reported to have been offered a country music contract with a major label. It has yet to be seen whether "Joe the Plumber" can turn his 15 minutes of fame into something more sustainable, or if he should stick to his plumbing gig.
