Politico‘s Jeffrey Ressner reported a little while ago that Joe the Plumber — i.e., Samuel Wurzelbacher — is “being pursued for a major record deal and could come out with a country album as early as Inauguration Day.” Don’t stop there! What about using Joe to play Mr. Clean in TV ads? (Seriously.) How about a reality show about Joe trying to make his way? Trying to pay back taxes, raise the dough to buy the business, etc.
Wurzelbacher has “just signed with a Nashville public relations and management firm to handle interview requests and media appearances,” Ressner adds, “as well as create new career opportunities, including a shift out of the plumbing trade into stage and studio performances.”
