Sam the Plumber

Maybe you've heard of this guy, Joe The Plumber. He'd be quite the GOP working-class hero, assuming he actually existed.

His full name is Samuel J. Wurzelbacher. And he owes back taxes, too, public records show. The premise of his complaint to Mr. Obama about taxes may also be flawed, according to tax analysts. Contrary to what Mr. Wurzelbacher asserted and Mr. McCain echoed, neither his personal taxes nor those of the business where he works are likely to rise if Mr. Obama’s tax plan were to go into effect, they said.
Vetting and fact-checking simply aren't things McCain and his campaign have the time for, I suppose.
