You knew it would happen. Joe the Plumber's 15 minutes of fame in last night's debate have turned into a round of public humiliation for the wannabe business owner. The Toledo Blade is reporting that Joe has no plumber's license.
To make matters worse, the Blade also found that the Ohio Department of Taxation placed a lien against Joe because $1,183 in personal property taxes had not been paid. To pile on, the paper disclosed, based on divorce records, Joe's 2006 income — $40,000, hardly enough to qualify for the tax hike he's so concerned about.
What did Joe do to earn the scorn of McClatchy's Seibel? Joe had the gall to object to The Anointed One's tax plans. And no unwashed citizen can object to an Obama proposal without getting sneered at by elites like Mark Seibel.
