Joe the Plumber Heads to Israel

Joe the Plumber—famous for being a campaign '08 ploy—plans to go to Israel to cover the conflict in Gaza for conservative Web site pjtv.com. Samuel Wurzelbacher will spend ten days there to report on the "Average Joes" in Israel, he told a Toledo TV station. During the campaign, Wurzelbacher was called out by Fox News anchor Shepard Smith for claiming a vote for Obama would mean the end of Israel.
