I could easily write a couple of paragraphs on this but rather than tell you what you are seeing watch these interviews. I will say that the missed opportunity last night was asking Joe whether we were talking about his gross or his Adjusted Gross Income. $250,000 can buy a great accountant Joe. Check these out:

BIDEN ON JOE
Joe the Plumber’ says he has no plumbing license – Yahoo AP
HOLLAND, Ohio – 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.

We don’t know much about Joe The Plumber, but we do know this: he made up his mind who he was voting for before last night’s debate.
Speaking with Katie Couric, “Joe” said that he “wasn’t swayed” by the debate last night, yet pretty much knew who he was going to vote for. So if (a) he wasn’t swayed by the debate and (b) knows who he is going to vote for, then (c) he had already made up his mind before the debate.

If you watched the third and final presidential debate last night you know that there were many mentions of “Joe the Plumber.” Joe is actually Joe Wurzelbacher, an ‘everyman’ who appeared out of a crowd at an Obama campaign appearance and asked the senator about his economic plan. Joe says his American Dream is being able to provide for his family and send his son to college. But some are saying that Joe isn’t who he appears to be.
