Joe The Plumber Wants to Be Jessica Simpson

10/30/2008 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe the Plumber's next stop: The Ivy restaurant.

The heretofore unknown and more or less mediocre Samuel J. Wurzelbacher is trying to elasticize his 15 minutes of fame: He's actually enlisted three managers to craft his "brand," and could get into country singing. "Joe is a hard-core country music fan, and he can carry a tune," says his manager apparently without irony.

Other possible gigs include shilling for Home Depot or, less specifically, being "the voice of Middle America." One thing he says he won't do: Run for office.

Actually, I saw an interview with him this morning and he said he had no interest in a singing career but that he does love country music. Furthermore, Obama, came to him not the other way around. Get the story straight, Obama gave the wrong answer, whether the guy was a plant or not, Obama's answer is what got America in a tizzy - not Joe the plumber. By the way who cares if he currently owes taxes??? That doesn't mean he won't pay them and $1,000 sure isn't much comparatively speaking. What kind of crappy people go digging into some guy's life because he asked a simple question. I agree he should have backed away from the media and moved on with his life but any of you would have taken the attention and ran with it as well. I think taking our hard earned money and giving it to lazy losers sucks - I hope Obama falls on his face -(and all of you other super liberal hypocrites who believe it is okay to destroy someone over nothing but cry prejudice at the slightest negative comment). MAN YOU PEOPLE NEED A CHECK UP FROM THE NECK UP!!!!

This guy is just a Republican tool. And not your average Joe, unless the average Joe is a con.

He stood John McCain up today. He was supposed to be at a rally and when McCain called out for him, CRICKETS. He was probably rehearsing with Kim from the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

This guy is big phony and his first name isn't "Joe." Now he wants to write a book, has hired a publicist, and wants to sing country music. LOL!

Good grief! You can't be serious. The whole world is watching this election and we have a fine, upstanding, unlicensed plumber who owes $1000 in back taxes as a "mascot"? Maybe now he can pay them. And you do need a license to be a plumber. I work in the industry.

He was NOT a "plant" by McCain. If he was they would have proven it. They checked this guy out from top to bottom & couldn't link him to McCain. He was actually "picked out" by the Obama people to do a question/answer photo op with the GREAT ONE & made a monkey (no pun intended) out of Obama. That's when all hell broke loose & they set out to "destroy" this guy by digging into his personal life & all because he made Obama slip up & reveal his real economic plan(s). Then Obama went on TV & LAUGHED at a "PLUMBER" like he was someone beneath his educational standards. For a plumber, I think Joe sounded pretty intelligent & had a good deal of ommon sense. I'll take that any day over the pseudo-intellectuals who think they are better than the average working person because they have a lot of education (the wrong kind). THINK about it people. If this is what someone gets for simply asking a question, noone is safe from the Obama gestapo.
