UMM Joe the Plumber, do you remember him? Well, he has a website now, and it is naughty — blink tags, crawls, overlapping text. None of the tabs, such as “Joe The Forum” or “Joe The Blogger,” work yet. He apparently has a book coming out though! Maybe buy that? No?? This is the worst “political website” since Ed Hale’s “Hillary Clinton Supporters For John McCain,” which now redirects to some pirate Midwestern radio station site. [Sigh]. As a famous writer once put it, with one tiny alteration: “Without the Election, what’s the point of being an American?” [Secure Our Dream]

  1. “Men and Women of the Armed?” Armed what? I’m dying to know!

    Also, if he wanted to be part of a change movement, he’s on the wrong gravy train.

  2. “As I have stated, I will honor and support my president…” Thank God for small favors! We were all so worried that you wouldn’t support “your” president, Wurzelbacher you dipshit. Please go away now, forever.

  3. “Shop Joe”?

    I realize our political figures are often for sale, but that’s rather, well, Jeff Gannon-y of him to put a button like that on the site…

  4. Heh, probably three dozen simultaneous hits from teh Wonketteers, and I got 503’d.

    Neocons & the tubes = water and oil.

    (Yes, it’s from Godfather III – fuck you.)

  5. What is it with wingnuts and bad web design? See also: Drudge, Free Republic, all those Hilltard and PUMA sites.

    I mean, you don’t need to be a designer to build a web site that’s not eye-bleedingly bad. Just go to or and slap on a template – any template – and you’ll get a better result than this.

  6. See, he’ll make $250k selling his merch to the extra chromasone conservtards and he’ll HAVE TO PAY HIGHER TAXES, just like he knew all along.
    Why didn’t we listen to Joe the Soothsayer?

  7. His metaphorical dick headishness combined with his actual physical head, which looks exactly like a dick, makes it hard for me to come up with a good insult. I keep coming back to “dickheaded dickhead.”

  8. [re=176148]PopeyesPipe[/re]: Dickheaded dickhead is really quite apt. Either that or “functional retard” – that might be slightly more accurate.

  9. Ha, Cold Sea, I was just about to come on and say “Joe the Douchebag.” But you more or less beat me to it.

    This guy is a total tool. He defines tool. He is the entire tool shed. And the dude is supposedly, what, 34, yet looks to be in his mid-40s at minimum.

    I guess one ages quickly, working so hard on get rich quick fame schemes. And not paying taxes. And being an assbag.

    He sucks. But we will again hear his name 10 years from now when they publish the Trivial Pursuit: WTF Were We Thinking” Edition.

  10. This is what I got when I tried to access it from work:

    Security risk blocked for your protection
    This category is filtered: Potentially Damaging Content. Sites in this category may pose a security threat to network resources or private information, and are blocked by your organization.


  11. All this site needs to complete the effect of transporting us back to 1995 is some annoying MIDI music, poorly-dithered animated .gif’s of waving flags, and maybe some frames.

    There are MySpace pages that look like visual masterworks compared to this slimy turd’s vainglorious “web site.”

  12. I do believe we need to keep a watch on “Joe”‘s website to see when he opens up his forum. Seems like the kind of crowd that would really go for the gospel of TRUCKNUTZ!

  13. Joe, please keep ‘yer hands out of my ‘ish.

    Remember Joe the three rules of plumbing:

    Payday is Friday
    Shit rolls downhill
    Always wash your hands before eating that sandwich

    Is this country really going to stank it up for four years while she builds her base?

  14. I’d be much happier with his site if he could decide if he were an I or a we. Switching back and forth every other sentence makes us wonder if he has delusions of being a twenty-armed monkey god, with each arm capable of independent thought. Hmmm, that might explain his love of the armed.

  15. The website is every bit as good as the campaign the Repugnicons ran.

    Let’s all go to the RNC website and show our support for a “Sarah ‘n Joe in 2012” ticket. That’ll keep ’em in the wilderness for at least another 4 years.

  16. My sneaker would leave a nice, waffly pattern on his smug face. Anyone tell this doofus that his side lost? Or would he have an existential crisis (i.e., drop dead) if we did?

  17. [re=176135]jagorev[/re]: Well in their defense, The republican party tends to be WASPs 50 years and older… Not the most technologically savvy. So I’m not shocked.

  18. And you just know this smug prick has thought to himself more than once that he could kick Todd’s ass and step in as the Second Dude. And then he would beat his wife and tell her how to run things.

  19. [re=176135]jagorev[/re]: Unfortunately it does appear that he scoured the web for help with his page’s look. There’s a credit within the HTML source code for “Trembling message script- © Dynamic Drive” which no doubt gave him the cut-n-paste seziure effect he was looking for.

    It reminds me of semi-literate secretaries I know that write every email in Comic-Sans font with their name flashing in the signature.

  20. how sweet, its the Failed Virtual American Dream in action…put up a BS website offering absolutely nothing, promote traffic, and retire on the advertising income…

    i’ll give 5 to 1 odds [up to a dollar max] that version 2 of never materializes….and that within three months ‘Joe’ declares bankruptcy…

  21. On one hand his website sucks enormous blue whale dong, on the other, I really would like to get a subscription to the “Joe the Blog” monthly newsletter?!? WTF?

  22. The web site for the other book written by the co-author of Joe’s “book”, Thomas N. Tabback, seems to use exactly the same template as Joe’s site.

    Is it true that Joe has been booked as a speaker on the National Review and Weekly Standard Mediterranean cruises this summer, which will also feature Bill Kristol and/or Dr. William Kristol?

  23. Also what is the “Free We are Joe Membership” thing? What does it mean. Does it mean “We are all Joe the Plumber” or is it a response to “Secure Our Future”; “We are, Joe!”

  24. hscfmj is crazier than ever:
    “I dont take advice from people that would have been destroyed in the fire at Sodom.”

    Is that Sloppy Joe’s version of a smile?! It’s freaking me out, man.

  25. “The other day, I was contacted by 72-year old man who pleaded with me to share his story with the media and politicians. He and his wife lost all of their savings in the stock market recently. They worked all their lives for this country and now they have nothing. Why? Because of corruption in Washington. That man asked me, ‘What do I do now Joe?’

    “‘Well,’ I said, ‘First you send me $14.95 …'”

  26. I just bought a 1 year freedom membership on his site for only $14.95 on my “Joe the Visa” credit card. Damn thing declined; maybe I should pay my taxes, er I mean bill.

  27. [re=176302]meemers[/re]: Joe resembles the love child of Jeff Gannon and Andrew Sullivan — assuming one of them could transplant a uterus and that, after said transplant, they’d still want to have sex with each other. Just saying….

  28. If Joe had even a thimble-full of imagination he would have turned on McCain after the debate and accused the McCain campaign and the republican party of trying to exploit him for partisan political purposes. If.

    Dumb ass.

  29. Where is the cease and desist order from Troma Entertainment? Joe’s head is an obvious composite of the Toxic Avenger and the Penis Monster. All proceeds from the sale of his “book” should go to Troma as restitution.

  30. [re=176097]lampadadog[/re]: The armed? WTF–Another Republican attack on Max Cleland? Go eat shit and die, Joe whatever the fuck your real name is.

  31. Actually, it’s true. We most of us really are Joe the Plumber. For the most part:

    1. We live in imaginary worlds in which we are wealthy/insightful/important (pick one);

    2. We are not licensed plumbers;

    3. We are not named Joe;

    4. We are behind on our taxes.

  32. I think the website contains some excellent writing, worthy of the Sarah Palin Literature Award, especially that lovely “ending with a preposition” trick. Also, I think there has clearly been inadequate attention paid to this horrible crime of selling American children:

    We can stop our elected officials from selling our children into debt with our enemies. We can help each other far better and faster than the government has ever been able to.

  33. Until the forum opens, the “publisher” (note the dick-fingers there) can be reached at


    For our friends at Google:

    Joe Wurzelbacher fucks dogs and children, eats hay and shits in the street.
    Joe Wurzelbacher is a MLM scam artist spammer, and fingerpainter.
    Joe Wurzelbacher frequents prostitutes who put rusty doorknobs up his ass.

    etc., etc.

    Repeat frequently.

  34. I’d almost guarantee that 10 years from now Joe’s going to look just like Tor Johnson stumbling his way around the desert in “The Beast of Yucca Flats.”

  35. Oh Joe, say it ain’t so. No comments section? Please please include a comments or a live town hall (like Ed Hale’s site). I guarantee you will have 2-3x the traffic of Wonkette if you do that.

    Ah, the good old days when we could freak out Hilltards by telling them the intertubes can hack them and that hackers and viruses are taking over their precious meetings. Joe, Joe, please make my dream come alive or its going to be a very boring weekend.

  36. If that wife beatin’, domestic abusin’ assclown thinks he’s got a career in country music or a career in anything period…he doesn’t know the power of organized women once they start calling radio stations demanding a ban

    And what’s with all this “wealth redistribution” and “no free rides” crap? When he was on welfare, where did he think that check came from every month, the tooth fairy? When he beat the crap out of his wife and she had to stay in a women’s shelter, who does he think picked up the tab for that? I don’t see him talking about THAT on his pwecious widdle web site (OK, I didn’t read it, but I know it’s not there).

    Link to Joe the Wife Beater’s domestic abuse court docket and other assorted asshattery, including two annulments and 12 other women who say he has a physically abusive nature towards women: (The Jeff Gannon comments are dead on. Why would some men rather hate and beat women rather than just come out of the damned closet and be who they are?

  37. [re=176467]trondant[/re]:

    oe Wurzelbacher fucks dogs and children, eats hay and shits in the street.

  38. So when I click on the free Joe Membership, why is the only option for an un-free Freedom Membership?

    How am I going to blog in the newsletter on the Joe Board???

    Joe Wurzelbacher frequents prostitutes who put rusty doorknobs up his freedom ass.

  39. [re=176157]mistabrad[/re]: totally agree he looks like crap for his age. I am wondering if his teeth are busted too, I mean why no teeth in his smile? Oh and I can’t wait until he gets busted drunk driving with a gun on his person OR just plain busted not paying his taxes again. F’ing tool shed

  40. I would like to say I’m surprised to learn all this about Joe (tax evasion, domestic violence, etc…), but, sadly, it is what I’ve come to expect from right wingers. I feel like a lone blue dot in a sea of red where I live — these people scare me.

    The Repugnicons (best nickname ever, to whomever coined it) here can sniff out their enemies’ open minds a mile away, and it makes them violent. I don’t think I’m safe.

  41. If he ever decides to hang himself, we can call him Joe the Plumb Bob. Somebody please tell Joe ya can’t get a grassroots movement going with a pay site.

  42. In that picture he looks like one of the doomed bit player crewmen in Star Trek who were always killed when Kirk and the team beamed down to the planet. Ensign Joe Buttwad.

  43. i desperately hate this man. he epitomizes self-infatuated, stupid-ass populism. not content to simply pride himself on his crippling ignorance, he feels a civic duty to broadcast it to the world.

  44. There’s nothing about fashion. Didn’t he get anything at Neiman-Marcus? I’m going back to Princess Sparkle Pony. Condi’s shoes are so hawt.

  45. O.M.G.

    And here I was so optimistic that he’d finally gone away. I should have known he’d be too much of an attention-whore to vanish quietly. Doesn’t he realize how smug and obnoxious that photo looks?

  46. Don’t you just love websites that consist of a front page + 50 coming soon pages? for christ sake, put some content on the site before going online.

  47. I’m so happy he hasn’t gone away! Comedy needs Joe. I like his new incarnations, but isn’t there something semantically wrong with “Joe the Forum?” Plumber, blogger, peddler of rushed-into-vanity-press paperbacks that NO-ONE WILL STOCK except Amazon because they don’t have to worry about U-Books’ no-returns policy — but “Joe the Forum” is so wrong. It would have to be “Joe the Forumer.” Or “Joe the Guy Who is Spending his Friday Night Hanging Around in This Forum Waiting for Someone to Start a Chat with Him, Besides That Kid in His Pajamas Who’s Trying to Start a Blog About, You Know, Political Stuff.” Someday there will be a Reader’s Digest article entitled “I Am Joe’s Forum.” It will talk about how empty and lonely it is, and how nobody wanted to fork over $14.95 to become a member of SecureOurDream. This site is like those little storefront yarncraft or scrapbooking or Wicca supply stores that my Young Alterna-Person Friend with a zillion pairs of depressingly groovy little horizontal spectacles in various day-glo colors and ironic Cramps T-shirts calls “My Dream Is Dying” emporiums.

  48. In his victory speech, President Elect Obama asked the question, that if his daughters were lucky enough to live for a century, what kind of a future would we leave them?

    I can’t answer that one, but I can predict one thing: If Joe the Douchebag, Ms Moosefart and Mittens represent the direction the Republican Party is headed, there will still be a Democrat in the White House.

  49. wow – what a bunch of mean spirited comments! use your tact, intelligence, vocabulary, etc… to do something that might actually add to the happiness of the world? Nah! It’s more fun to show your shallowness of character, excess of unproductive time, etc… by being mean.

    In your own style, what about this? —> O-Num-Nutz has already started to break his promises, they aren’t on the website anymore… appointing old-style political hacks… what kind of change is that? He’s all promises, that is all he knows — tell folks what they want to hear, do what you want to do anyway. He is a good ‘promiser’ – he PROMISED the folks of Illinois that he wouldn’t run in ’08 and he’d serve out his term as Senator.

    That could be said to be the first Great Lie… if the Repubs were like the Dems, there wouldn’t be any ‘o”s on the keyboards when his staff gets to work. (costing taxpayers $$) Or maybe ‘M”s (Messiah? Misanthrope?)…

    Once again, voting against someone else, without knowing what you were really voting for.. (he wouldn’t say, really) has allowed the wool to be pulled over your eyes…. time will tell, but you bunch of illogical zealots won’t admit it when it does.

    (Contrary to the already-composed blasts of ire that will likely be directed at me, I will add that I do not like what the current administration is doing or has done regarding privacy, for example… )

    The Dems in Congress haven’t tried to solve anything – else they can’t use the issues as party platforms – the real cause of the economic downturn is lack of Congressional Oversight. Can’t oversee those who fund you, though…

    That’s enough for now, too many new, rational ideas may cause your collective heads to explode…

    Blessings, Love and Light to you all!

  50. As JohnnyMac said, the site has a certain Comic Sans feeling. Love the blinks and marquees! Where are the little animated US flags or revolving crosses?

    Oh, I almost forgot:

    Joe Wurzelbacher fucks dogs and children, eats hay and shits in the street.
    Joe Wurzelbacher is a MLM scam artist spammer, and fingerpainter.
    Joe Wurzelbacher frequents prostitutes who put rusty doorknobs up his ass.

  51. And standing there as big as life
    and smiling with his eyes.
    Says Joe “What they can never kill
    went on to propagandize,
    went on to propagandize”

  52. Great acronym for Secure Our Dream
    From teh Wiki:
    Sod (vulgarity)

    Sod in British English is a mildly offensive term for a person, derived from sodomite[1] but rarely nowadays used with this meaning. It has many uses, but particularly implies idleness (as in “lazy sod”). As a mild insult, it is often used affectionately between friends (“How are you, you old sod?”). It can be used as many different parts of speech — e.g. in the imperative mood, “Sod off!”; or in adjective form, “sodding bastard”. Such uses as “Sod it!” and “Sod this” are often used when deciding something is not worth doing out of complete frustration.
