Last Wednesday night, a blue-collar hero went down in
Toledo, Ohio’s own Joe Wurzelbacher—aka “Joe the Plumber”—was invoked
no less than 26 times, making him more central to the third presidential
debate between John McCain and Barack Obama than anything else, including
taxes, education, the war, terrorism, the environment and energy independence.
Seeing as how a playlist about plumbers would’ve been pretty
short, today’s Current Events megamix will focus simply on great songs about
guys named Joe. Here’s to you, plumber man!
