Plumbin’ Joe has left and gone away

Where have you gone, Joe Wurzelbacher,
John McCain turns his lonely eyes to you.
What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson.
Plumbing Joe has left and gone away,
Hey hey hey.

per NY Times:

DEFIANCE, Ohio — Where was Joe?

Here in Defiance — a town that sums up the mood of Senator John McCain right now – the Republican nominee gave a shoutout this morning to America’s most famous plumber, Joe Wurzelbacher, who was, or so the candidate thought, in the audience.

“Joe’s with us today!’’ Mr. McCain hollered at a cold outdoor rally at Defiance Junior High School. “Joe, where are you? Where is Joe? Is Joe here with us today?’’


Maybe just a scheduling foul-up, but a funny one.
