He is Joe the Plumber and was actually in my little town tonight. We don't see a whole lot of celebrities in these parts. If you're lucky, Joe will be in your town next! According to various sources, "Joe will have drink and hors devours - everyone will get a chance to speak personally with Joe and learn about his life since meeting President Barack Obama."
For only $50 you too could have been at his little shindig! Joe was at nearby Pittfield last night, and will be in Springfield tomorrow night speaking at Take Back Illinois 912 meetings. After that, I don't know where he will be (and I don't care).
According to their official website for Take Back Illinois 912, it is "an organization for conservative minded individuals that are worried about the direction and..." (blahblahblah). That quote came from a badge on their site that you can get and put on your site and it really does end with the dot dot dot. I have no idea what really goes after the dot dot dot.
It is such a comprehensive website with a very long and rather confusing mission statement and "The Plan," by Glenn Beck. I suppose it gives the conservatives around here something to do. I hope they keep Mama Grizzly Palin as their most polarizing candidate in the next presidential election!
I saw no newspaper advertisement, but this flyer was circulated all over town--too funny! It doesn't say the cost for this once in a lifetime event, but the local website, shows the cost for the event at $50.00 per person. That site has been updated already and shows that ten people attended! WooHoo!
And Joe, wasn't your fifteen minutes of fame over in 2008?(Click Image to Enlarge)
