    Default Joe/Sam the Fake Plumber/Tax Cheat files first report from Israel

    SDEROT, Israel — Joe the Plumber has set aside his wrenches to become a rookie war correspondent, covering Israel's side of its two-week-old military offensive in Gaza.

    The Ohio man, who rocketed to fame during the U.S. presidential campaign for asking Barack Obama about his tax plan, was in the southern Israeli town of Sderot on Sunday to tell readers of the conservative pjtv.com Web site about the rockets that rain down from the neighboring Gaza Strip.

    The people of Sderot "can't do normal things day to day" like get soap in their eyes in the shower, for fear of rockets, said America's most famous plumber, whose real name is Samuel J. Wurzelbacher.

    "I'm sure they're taking quick showers," he said. "I know I would."

    Wurzelbacher's status as a rookie was evident when he stood in front of a pile of spent rockets and said: "I have thousands of questions but I can't think of the right one."

    What he could summon was contempt for Israel's critics, who are outraged by the more than 870 Palestinians killed in Israel's bruising air and ground onslaught against Gaza's Islamic militant Hamas rulers. Thirteen Israelis have also died since the operation began, including four killed by the rocket fire that touched off the war in the first place.

    "Why hasn't Israel acted sooner?" Wurzelbacher asked. "I know if I were a citizen here, I'd be damned upset."

    He described himself as a "peaceloving man," but added, "when someone hits me, I'm going to unload on the boy. And if the rest of the world doesn't understand that, then I'm sorry."
    Story continues below

    Wurzelbacher, who underwent intense media scrutiny during the campaign, said he was enlisted to cover Israel because he's "an expert on media bias."

    "I was on the short end of the stick," like Israel is now, he said.

    When Wurzelbacher joined Republican Sen. John McCain on the campaign trail, he agreed with a supporter who asked if he thought "a vote for Obama is a vote for the death of Israel."

    Wurzelbacher said the full story of Israel's campaign against Hamas isn't coming out on mainstream news outlets. He said they are demonizing Israel instead of recognizing it as the victim of Gaza militants who have fired thousands of rockets at Israel over the past eight years.

    "It's asinine when someone is firing upon you and the world is coming down on you," he said. "Common sense has gone out the window."

    "Hamas hides among its own people," causing civilian casualties, he added. "But I hear no cry out from the international community."

    That's the Israeli government's position, too. And though foreign reporters normally have to provide proof of experience to receive government authorization to report from Israel, Wurzelbacher was being escorted Sunday on his first reporting gig ever by the head of the Government Press Office, Danny Seaman, and a press office photographer.

    Wurzelbacher said he's been "embraced" by the people of Israel because "they know I have no agenda but the truth." But his arrival in a busy cafe elicited no overt signs of recognition. He appeared to cause more of a stir among the press there.

    This is his first trip to Israel, and he pronounced himself "happy to be here."

    But war correspondent or not, Wurzelbacher won't get to Gaza: Israel has barred access to foreign journalists.

    "If he wants to put on an Israeli military uniform and go in as a volunteer, maybe," Seaman quipped. "Nobody goes in."http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/01/11/joe-the-plumber-files-fir_n_156978.html
    Oh God, please let me find a video!

    **edit:

    Well, I did find this little honey, wherein the all knowing Joe/Sam the fake plumber/tax cheat weighs in on reporters in war zones. It's wildly illuminating as to his stupidity and inability to think coherently. Enjoy.

    Joe the Plumber: ‘I think media should be abolished’ from reporting on war.»

    Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the Plumber,” is currently in Israel covering the war for the conservative site PJTV.com. When asked what he has learned from his new experiences as a journalist, Wurzelbacher said that he believes the media shouldn’t be allowed to do “reporting” on wars:
    I’ll be honest with you. I don’t think journalists should be anywhere allowed war. I mean, you guys report where our troops are at. You report what’s happening day to day. You make a big deal out of it. I think it’s asinine. You know, I liked back in World War I and World War II when you’d go to the theater and you’d see your troops on, you know, the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for’em. Now everyone’s got an opinion and wants to downer–and down soldiers. You know, American soldiers or Israeli soldiers.
    I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting. You know, war is hell. And if you’re gonna sit there and say, “Well look at this atrocity,” well you don’t know the whole story behind it half the time, so I think the media should have no business in it.

    Joe is a fan of good ol censorship. If you can't see it, it didn't happen, eh Joe? Forget holding leaders accountable for atrocities, cuz nobody would ever know.

    You are such a fucking RETARD. I hate you more with ever breath you draw, you intellectually incompetent waste of space.

    The fake plumber/tax cheat with no media experience thinks that the real media professionals should be abolished from covering wars? There you go again, Joe.

    I don't think Joe the Plumber should be anywhere allowed journalism.

    There's a certain irony in seeing this wannabe journalist getting paid to tell people that journalism shouldn't be permitted during war. This is exactly why you should never hire an idiot to be a journalist.

    Fucking fundie fucker.

    He's just trying to justify the fact that Israel won't let any western journalists into Gaza to report on the REAL atrocities that are going on in the region. This is a red flag for everyone else, but Joe Schmo Dipshit doesn't seem to quite get it. Yet another one of these fundie assholes who thinks Israel can do no wrong, and that they have the right (given by the Bible) to "unload on the boy." What a redneck hillbilly asshole.

    And his solution to the problem is to interview the average guys and look at bombs.

    I know what his next assignment should be.

    Covering corruption, confusion and mere stupidity in the Alaska governor's office.

    By some dumb stroke of luck he might actually uncover something. I say let's get him on the first plane to Wassillabilla or whatever it's called.
