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.

"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"

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.
Dear IRS,

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.

A person that either:

1) protends of being every day lower to middle class yet makes a butt load of cash ($250k+).

2) is unclear on the concept of taxable income versus business revenues (one is taxable, the other is not the value to which your taxes are based). Joe Plumber fails to realize if he collects $250k for his services, he is only taxed on the profits which are assuredly far less that $250k.
Example 1:
Joe the Plumber: Hey man, these taxes stink. I made $260k last year and because of Obama, I had to pay slightly higher taxes on the $10k above the first $250k.

Joe Six Pack: Yeah, that's rough. At my house we are having squirrel stew since we can't afford food.

Example 2:
Joe the Plumber: Damn, I made $260k last year and now I gotta pay more taxes.

Joe Bag-o-donuts: You made $260k? How come you don't have a house, sweet ride, or hot wife?

Joe the Plumber: Oh well, that's just what I collected. I only brought home like $40k.

Joe Bag-o-donuts: You suck at math.

The final desperate ploy in a long string of desperate ploys. An ineffectual effort preceding a colossal, epic fail.
Napoleon's Joe The Plumber could not surmount the rising tide of social and political forces that laid the groundwork for his exodus from power.

The ex-hardcore-porn movie actor who does plumbing for the neighbors occasionally. He is also planning to be an entrepreneur in the future, had a brief conversation with Barack Obama, and worries that the tax plans under the new administration will affect his plans for the big bright future.

Generally considered the same IQ, a little bit higher or lower than Joe six pack-- depending on your religious beliefs.
Person A: "Dude, did you watch Obama and McCain talking about Joe the plumber? I really enjoyed it! I feel I know a whole lot more about the economic plans of the two presidential candidates"

Person B: "Pathetic!"
