Joe the Plumber's 15 Minutes of Scrutiny and the Candidates' Final Duel of Hilarity

The premise: Joe the Plumber is worried about Obama's tax policy for individuals and business that make over $250,000.

Fact check #1: Joe the Plumber's full name is Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher. Let's all call him Sam, or even Samwise, from now on.

Fact check #2: Samwise the Plumber doesn't have a plumber's license. Various plumbers' guilds and unions, as well as legitimate journeymen and apprentices, must not be thrilled about the pretender in their midst.

Fact check #3: Samwise the Pretender apparently cheated on back taxes. He owes about $1200 in taxes (no problem if you're an annual quarter-of-a-millionaire). Before someone can rightfully be concerned about potential future taxes, maybe that person should clean up his past tax history first. Also, Samwise, remember that it was John McCain who outed you on TV (unless, of course, you're a Republican plant).

Fact check #4: Samwise the Tax-evading Pretender currently makes less than $250,000 per year. As is, Sam would benefit from Obama's proposed middle-class tax cuts. If Sam ever gets the capital to purchase a plumbing company, after payroll and expenses are considered, it is doubtful that this small business would be a $250K+ per year medium-to-big business.

Joe - Sam - whoever you are, stop being a bleeding heart conservative.

By the way, Debate #4 (the self-effacing, stand-up comedy duel) was awesome.

Be sure to search YouTube for various excerpts from the greatest debate of all time. As for me, I'm voting for Bar-El, aka Barry Kent of the Daily Senate.

I'm currently searching for McCain's entire routine.
