It's about as relevant as Joe the Plumber's views on Socialism, but hey - it's front page news on Fox.
"Joe the Plumber" seems to be creating a bona fide brand for himself.
But as for the rumor that he's being pursued for a country music record deal, Joe Wurzelbacher says he doesn't know if the American people are quite ready for his crooning.
"I love country music, and I mean it's pretty much what I listen to from sun-up to sundown," he told FOX News on Thursday. "But as far as me being a country music star, I don't know. I don't think people are that deaf-tone out there."
Time will tell.
Wurzelbacher has signed with reputable Nashville public relations firm The Press Office to handle his media appearances, and there has been chatter that he could be working up a country album for as early as Inauguration Day. Part of the speculation is rooted in the fact that country music artist and producer Aaron Tippin is one of the three people co-managing him.
"He's no more doing a country music record right now than he's starring on Broadway. He's Joe the Plumber trying to get his message across," The Press Office's Jim Della Croce insisted in an interview with FOXNews.com. "We're not going to entertain anything until after the election."
I stated yesterday that I thought Joe/Sam the Plumber must be on the McCain payroll now, and being paid to make appearances in behalf of John McCain and Caribou Barbie. The fact that he's got "management" supports that theory. Wurzelbacher wouldn't endorse or appear for McCain until a few days ago - and it's my guess that a deal was struck at that time that is likely to make Joe quite a few bucks.
Up until now the highest paid staffer on the McCain campaign was Sarah Palin's makeup artist, so it should be surprise that McCain would pay big bucks for an experienced foreign policy analyst like Joe the Plumber.
