Joe the Plumber – Not Licensed

October 16, 2008

In an interview with the AP, Joe ‘The Plumber’ Wurzelbacher admitted that he is a scab wrench turner, and unworthy of the designation of ‘plumber’.

Joe the Plumber said Thursday he doesn’t have a license and doesn’t need one. Joe Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, the nickname Republican John McCain bestowed on him during Wednesday’s presidential debate, said he works for a small plumbing company that does residential work. Because he works for someone else, he doesn’t need a license, he said.

AP, 10/16/08

So, Joe the Plumber, the one that wants to buy the company, the one that wants to run a plumbing business, isn’t even a licenced plumber. In other words, this guy is that schmo that real plumbers would laugh at, and call a ‘handyman’. Does Joe the Plumber really think that a handyman would be better under John McCain’s tax plan? He may, but he’s full of shit…and isn’t licenced to get himself unfull of shit.

Such is the way of thinking for undereducated, egoistic, self-deceiving blowhards. He claims he wants to buy the business, but is completely unqualified to do so. He claims that Obama’s tax plan would hurt him, when in fact it’s better for him…by far. He claimed that he had been undecided, when in fact, he’s been pulling for McCain since the get-go. And, get this….he’s not registered to vote.

A liar, a fraud, and a unpatriotic douchebag of a handyman was the centerpiece of John McCain’s debate arguments.

Oh, and he doesn’t pay his taxes anyway.



  1. If he doesn’t need a license to be legal, why should he bother? Just to satisfy pseudo-intellectual muckrakers? If it walks like a duck, it is a duck. Or a plumber — with or without a license.

  2. Just wait, wonderingaloud. Joe the Plumber was a plant. Being verified as I type.

  3. Only one person per company needs to be licensed in order to pull a permit in the licensed trades, (HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical). those are the main residential trades, not counting a thousand specialty trades that need certification.
    If Joe is not licensed, that is okay for him to work under his boss’s license. His boss is responsible for getting the work passed by the inspector.

  4. But for Joe to back McCain and the GOP is another example of working class people supporting the party that supports the wealthy. He must not recall the first thing Bush did upon winning office was cut taxes for the wealthy, not the working class plumbers, licensed or not.

    JOE THE NON-UNION, UNLISCENED, SCAB PLUMBER gives a bad name for Unionized Journeymen plumbers.

    Using McCain’s 6-Day 10hr shifts Joe could have made in excess of $250,000.00 WITHOUT EVEN OWNING THE BUSINESS!

    You say how? An PRIMARY “A” DIVISION JOURNEYMEN in LOCAL #1 makes $80.26 per hr (including benefits) X 6 days a week 10 hrs a day = $3,210.40 Regular Time + 20 hrs OT @ $120.29 = $2405.80 = $5616.20 x 52= $292,042.40!

    So JOE THE “SCAB” PLUMBER could pay his TAXES and get a new van if he was a PROUD AMERICAN “A” DIVISION JOURNEYMEN in LOCAL #1.

    Don’t believe the numbers? Call the Joint board and check!

    Vote Union Today = OBAMA 2008!

  6. Strong unions make America strong. Good to hear from you!

  7. Unions, what a joke. I endured several weeks on the picket line here in Florida. Lost my job and have been working in the dreadead private sector. All Joe did was ask a question. I think you have not much of a clue, except you hide behind someonde else.
