Joe the Plumber Elected to Local Party Seat

The only positive effect the Punk has had on America is that countless ordinary Americans are now galvanized and politically active.
Many TEA Partiers had never been involved in politics before but are now. Others are running for political office. Joe the Plumber is one of them.
Joe became famous from his chance encounter with presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2008, in which the Punk spoke the truth for once when he extolled “spreading the wealth” and made the facile promise — since broken — that if elected he would not increase taxes on Americans making less than $250,000 a year. The MSM did the predictable hatchet job on Joe. But has that stopped him? Hell no.
Joe ran for and was just elected to a local Republican Party Committee. Way to go, Joe!

Joe the Plumber Is Elected to Party Office in Ohio

May 5, 2010   
Joe the Plumber is plunging into party politics.
Samuel “Joe” Wurzelbacher, who was hailed by Republican John McCain’s presidential campaign in 2008, won one of nearly 400 seats on the local Republican Party committee in Ohio’s Lucas County.
But don’t call him Joe the Politician just yet. The group he’ll serve on meets only a few times a year to elect the county chairman and sets the party agenda. Wurzelbacher won the seat by a 38-24 vote Tuesday in his suburban Toledo precinct. A message seeking comment was left with him Wednesday. 
He became an overnight sensation almost two years ago after questioning then-Sen. Barack Obama on the campaign trail about his economic policies and then when McCain repeatedly cited “Joe the Plumber” in a debate. He was held up by the GOP as an example of the middle-class worker who would be hurt economically by an Obama presidency. Wurzelbacher has since written a book, spoken at conservative gatherings and spent a few weeks as a war correspondent in the Gaza Strip. He’s resisted calls to run for Congress and has criticized Democrats and Republicans alike. He’s also taken shots at McCain, confessing in his book that he did not want him as the GOP presidential nominee.
Wurzelbacher remains an icon for many antiestablishment conservatives. He drew cheers at a tea party rally last month in Cincinnati when he told the crowd not to let “a bunch of liberal pansies” take away their rights. “Illegal immigration?” he said. “Put a fence up and start shooting.”
Wurzelbacher has never been shy about sharing his views even if they open him up to critics. He told Christianity Today in an interview last year that he believes gays are “queer” and said he won’t allow them near his children. “I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children,” he said. “But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.” He also said that too many Republicans use God “to invoke sympathy or invoke righteousness, but they don’t stay the course.”
