(New York Magazine)   Have a toilet that is backed up AND looking to piss off libs? For only $1,000 a day plus travel expenses, you can have Joe the Plumber come fix your toilet and carp about Palestinians, or Barry Soetoro, or whatever   (nymag.com) divider line 61

see kids this guy is why you don't eat on the job
 
2013-10-11 04:37:26 PM  
No plumbing license.
 
2013-10-11 04:37:34 PM  
because if you are a plumber the would have poop on it

We're still talking about this douche?
 
2013-10-11 04:38:29 PM  
I think he flushed his brains.
 
2013-10-11 04:38:34 PM  
Man. I wish I was a Real American (tm) so I could get scammed out of my money by politically-charged shysters.
 
2013-10-11 04:39:13 PM  
Wow, Fark is really boring and sucky the last few days. All this shiat going on and we get Joe the Plumber stories? Meh...

2013-10-11 04:40:52 PM  
Sorry, no.  I require my plumbers to be licensed, bonded, experienced and honest.
 
2013-10-11 04:40:53 PM  
Someone thinks too highly of themselves if they think this pisses off anyone else.
 
2013-10-11 04:40:57 PM  
I would prefer Ray Gallooly.
 
2013-10-11 04:41:18 PM

Ha! Ponies on his webpage! Also:

Before you assume it's all I can do, don't worry - I've done white collar world as a Network engineer. No, didn't go to school for it, I learned it by reading books, learning from my peers and bosses - the hardscrabble way. The money was good, but building networks (voice and data) didn't give me the sense of accomplishment that I wanted and quite frankly I like blue collar people a hell of a lot more... if I have to describe blue collared in one word... REAL.

Goddamn it I almost think it would be worth it to drop $1k just to see him try to try and use Wireshark.
 
2013-10-11 04:41:58 PM  
Since his shooting shiate rates are five times cheaper than his working like a dog rates, I imagine his tongue-punching a dog's fartbox rates are incredibly reasonable.
 
2013-10-11 04:42:13 PM  
Will he be able to explain why "Wanting a white president again?" isn't even slightly racist.

Yeah, but your first few attempts are going to be messy until you get the hang of it.  I ruined a laminate floor with my first plumbing job.
 
2013-10-11 04:43:09 PM  
Why would anyone expect someone who doesn't respect the law to be a good president?
 
2013-10-11 04:44:07 PM

So is the 10% to the national debt on top of what he has to pay in taxes on the income?  Or is he telling us that this is an under the table deal and he "promises" to mail them 10%?  It's hard to tell with Joe (not his real name) the (probably thee) Plumber (not an actual licensed plumber).
 
2013-10-11 04:45:37 PM  
Is Joe the Plumber the guy that is marginally notable, and vaguely recognizable, because John McCain mentioned him in passing, during a campaign speech?

Is Joe the Plumber the person who John McCain referenced, using bad data to make a weak point?

Is Joe the Plumber the business person that is not now and was never a plumber?

I fear for our country, I absolutely fear for the future USA that my children will experience.
 
2013-10-11 04:46:52 PM  
How much of the $1000 goes to hiring someone with an actual plumbing license?

Ah, bless his heart.  He thinks that laying down Cat5 is "white collar".   He's pretty proud of himself that he learned how to do it, though.
 
2013-10-11 04:51:33 PM  
he's flailing....i bet his mortgage is in foreclosure.

He should have stuck to fixing pipes and stayed out of the political circus.

idiot.
 
2013-10-11 04:53:05 PM  
No doubt his new business venture is everything he should expect it to be.

I have a difficult time believing this guy was a network engineer...
 
2013-10-11 05:03:45 PM  
He's not even good at being a conservative grifter, which is possibly the easiest job in the world.

He's probably not even a cable monkey. He helped a buddy run some Cat6 on a job one afternoon, got the "blue, blue/white" instructions, did a few punch-downs, and figured he was basically a CCNA.
 
2013-10-11 05:11:19 PM  
Help me out, Conservatives... if you decide to shell out $1,000 plus travel expenses so Joe the Plumber can unclog your toilet, why on Earth do you think that would that piss me off? What am I missing here?

Yeah, that quote immediately sets off the b.s. detector. "I totally was a network engineer, but fixing toilets is just so more satisfying. Giving up working with stupid routers for this plunger and wrench is worth giving up the 100k salary." Yeah right.

He's the guy the McCain campaign pounced on, that McCain mentioned over and over in a presidential debate, did snoochie-boochies with Sarah Palin on the campaign trail, is the non-business person that is not now and was never a plumber, was hired and fired by Pajamas Media as their correspondent in Israel, ran for congress and got stomped into a pale pink sludge but has an amusing web site;

Did I miss anything?
 
2013-10-11 05:21:01 PM  
For those of you who want to feel superior, you can work me like a dog but you will be paying me like a rock star. 5 Thousand a day plus travel.

Weirdest. Plumbing ad. Ever.

I mean I get it. It you are a teatard who herps the same derp as Not-Joe the Non-Plumber he'll ONLY charge you 1,000 a day plus expenses but if ya think that's a lot George Soros would have to pay 5K a day for the same service.

Such a deal.

From that blog post:

In the pre-black president era, criticizing the president was simply the American thing to do.

Gee that's funny, I remember hearing a lot about how un-American it was from 2001-2008. But you know, conservatives have been so hesitant to critize Obama about anything, so what he says must be true!
 
2013-10-11 05:30:15 PM  
I haven't been able to cut an anxiety-free turd since Obabmm mandated I get a low-flow toilet.

There's just too much riding on every one now.
 
2013-10-11 05:32:12 PM  
It would almost be worth $1000 to watch him wallow in my septic tank (not code speak) for a day.

Maybe he self-certed, how about that?

BTW anyone looking to hire a self certified warp core engineer and plasma injector technician? Will work for microbrew beer and dank weed.

That's not what he said. He said "a white Republican president".
 
2013-10-11 05:47:46 PM  
Why in the world would anyone be pissed some chucklehead wasted $1000 on,what would likely be, the most annoying plumbing repair job ever.

I mean seriously, I have had to tell contract workers "You know its great work you are doing but, how about you quit talking about politics (or sports, your sex life what have you) and get back to the work I am paying you for?"

Besides I only hire licensed companies to work at my house.

revrendjim: That's not what he said. He said "a white Republican president".



I apologise, let me post a link to the full article:

"I long for the days of a white president, because under white presidents, at least black people had pride. Liberals have stolen pride from blacks, and they have no intention of giving it back.  At least if we had a white president, black people might have a shot of regaining a modicum of respect."


There, totally not racist. And definitely not saying that these uppity ni-bongs need to remember their place, and learn how to be civilized from their white masters.
 
2013-10-11 06:43:57 PM  
Remember, folks: this silly, silly man was the official mascot of the McCain/Palin campaign.
 
2013-10-11 06:45:02 PM  
Of course having a non-white president caused racial problems. It enraged all those cracker-ass crackers, and they became the founding fathers of the Tea Party.
 
2013-10-11 06:50:15 PM  
You hire that asshat for that kind of money, you're not going to piss off Libs
