Could things get any worse for the Republican Party? First Arlen Specter, now... Joe the Plumber. The working-class pundit with questionable credentials has abandoned the party that brought his 15 minutes of fame, explaining that he is disgusted by the GOP's "overspending." As is often the case for Joe—real name, Samuel Wurzelbacher—his logic broke down in his tangled web of conservatism, as he said he would not support "cuts in defense, Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid—which, along with debt payments, would put more than two-thirds of the budget off limits." Without a party affiliation, how will Joe land more speaking gigs on Capitol Hill?
