We will know more about Joe the Plumber in the next week than
The Obama/Ayers relationship
Obama's NYC years
Obama's Certificate of Live Birth
Obama's State Senate Record
Obama's Transcripts and school history
Obama's Pakistan trip at a time when American's were forbidden to travel there
Obama's New Party linkages
and the list goes on and on.
Yet the media has had two years to look into Obama and his history. Local media in both NYC and Chicago should be able to shake out their sources for information on what has happened in their own back yard.
Instead all we get are shiny toy distraction stories that indirectly the Obama campaign lets keep going since it takes up time and resources and keeps people from looking too close at the man behind the curtain.
UPDATE: Reader RG just wrtoe me and said "I just put a $20 bill in the mail to "Joe the Plumber" - he's catching it pretty hard - and the DU is in full attack mode.
Might be nice to assist him - no one seems to be organizing anything to help him out. Why is that, people?"
Huffington Post published his personal info, including address. I've cut-and-pasted it here.

And McCainSpace sent me this message: "It's just been announced that Joe owes Ohio 1200 dollars in taxes. If we can find an address, let's send 5 dollars each to him to relieve his tax burden. I think it's the least we could do for someone that stood up for America."
