2. Nickname for Joe Wurzelbacher during the 2008 US presidential election, who got his 15 minutes of fame by confronting Barack Obama with a hypothetical scenario of buying the plumbing business he worked for that would allegedly put him in the top tax bracket.

the surprise star of the 3rd and final presidential debate of 2008.
"hey, joe, you're rich! congratulations!"
-john mccain, speaking to joe the plumber.
An individual named Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher who was the surprise star of the final 2008 presidential debate between now president-Elect Barack Obama and Republican Senator John McCain as a feeble attempt at defeating Barack Obama during said debate. He was made famous by questioning Barack Obama's proposed tax policies, which was blown completely out of proportion and twisted out of context beyond recognition by the McCain campaign and the FOX News corporation. He was also made infamous for being an unlicensed plumber who owed back taxes to the IRS, which was never mentioned by the McCain campaign.
Joe the plumber is a useless tax deadbeat. He isn't even a licensed plumber!
euphemism for an idiot, or someone who speaks without any knowledge of what they claim to be a professional of. Unlicensed, unqualified and uninformed. A dufus.
My neighbor is Joe The Plumber, he's been talking about buying a business worth a quarter of a million when he barely has two quarters to rub together. He's not even a licensed plumber.
A JACK-LEG, "under the table" plumber who should have stayed out of the national spotlight because he has no plumbing license and owes back taxes. Neither presidential candidate owes him anything.
I am sending you this formal letter requesting a 90 day extension on paying my taxes. My intentions are not to pull a "Joe The Plumber" and go to prison. In the mean time, I promise not to go out of my way to meet a presidential candidate and make demands on him, while I am engaging in illegal activities.
"Joe the Plumber," aka Joe Wurzelbacher referred to in the 2008 presidential election was used as a tool by McCain to make Obama appear as if he were raising taxes for the common man.
In actuality, under Obama's economic plan, "Joe The Plumber" would only be taxed if his company made over $250,000 a year.
McCain used this as spin to confuse undecided voters that Obama was taxing "Middle America" when in actuality he promises not to raise taxes for 95% of Americans.
McCain: "Your going to tax Joe the Plumber"
Obama: "I Only if he's making over 1/4 of a Million dollars a year"
though the entire republican party hates his very existance, ole joe the plumber is tricked into expecting tax cuts and a fair share of healthcare benifits to be handed from the very party that hates hard workers and/with sensible values. kinda like you and me.
