JOE THE PLUMBER - WILL CLARK GIVE HIM A CALL?

Joe the Plumber has become a touchstone in the US election - A simple humble man who has been thrust into the spotlight.

We wonder if Labour will find someone like Joe the plumber to help push their message.

Maybe he could help deliver pamphlets.

We know that plumbers are popular with the PM so it will be fascinating to see if a "Joe the Plumber" emerges during this campaign.

I thought Helen's love interest was called Bob.

After talking to a couple of dudes high up in the plumbing world, if Clark found a Joe the Plumber he'd probably crack her head open with a pipe wrench. They hate Labour.

I watched that story in amazement as a complete disparity in thinking between our socialised culture and the american capitalise one.

Can you even begin to imagine anyone in Labour or National trying to shame their opponents over tax increases to people earning $US 250,000?
