You know what’s really good about Joe the Plumber? No puns.

I mean, here is a classic fish-out-of-water scenario — a plumber embroiled in politics — and he offers no puns about his profession.


He hasn’t said meeting Barack Obama was a wrenching experience.

He hasn’t said he was trying to snake out the truth in talking to the Democratic presidential nominee.

He didn’t say he thinks Obama’s tax plan would clog the economy.

He even didn’t say that what the country needs is to replace its PVC and install a diverter and angle stop.

Yep, all in all, I’d say he’s shown a lot of restraint. Unlike, some of us.
