. . . Joe the Plumber. Or so says George Will: "If the winner of this debate is the next President, the next President is Joe the Plumber." Would that be better or worse than Sixpack Joe? I'm not sure.
But I think he's right. If you came into the debate on the Obama side, that's where you left. Likewise if you came in a McCain supporter. I think this was a debate that solidified, not changed, opinions. These undecided voters . . . who are these people anyway?
We watched the debate as I cooked dinner and Sophie did her homework. She had many questions, among them was when George Will made the above comment in the post-debate commentary: "Mama, is that Joe Plumber??" No, honey, it's not.
But I'm sort of worried about waking up to this on the front page of the New York Times.
