Report: Joe the Plumber Says McCain ‘Appalled’ Him

‘Joe the Plumber’ told conservative radio host Glenn Beck Tuesday that he felt “dirty” after hitting the campaign trail with presidential candidate John McCain and “seeing some of the things that take place,” Politico reported.

Joe Wurzelbacher said he was specifically put off by McCain when it came to talk of the $700 billion bailout.

Why? This could be good or bad depending on what was said.

“When I was on the bus with him, I asked him a lot of questions about the bailout because most Americans did not want that to happen,” Wurzelbacher told Beck. “I asked him some pretty direct questions. Some of the answers you guys are gonna receive — they appalled me, absolutely. I was angry. In fact, I wanted to get off the bus after I talked to him.”

Wurzelbacher said he stayed on the trail with McCain “honestly, because the thought of Barack Obama as president scares me even more.”

Perhaps it was because McCain is more honest?

Wurzelbacher, however, offered kind words regarding McCain running mate Gov. Sarah Palin.

“Sarah Palin is absolutely the real deal,” he said.

Exactly! Maybe we should have a Palin/Wurzelbacher ticket? It’d be nice to get some real people into office!

It’s the brand I use
