McCain Advisor Defending “Joe the Plumber” Gimmick

McCain advisor Brian Jones tells MSNBC that the “Joe the Plumber” gimmick was “spontaneous,” and that it “just happened.”  He is trying to defend a gimmick that has completely backfired.

“Joe the Plumber” is another McCain gimmick gone wrong and is emblematic of McCain’s erratic campaign.   One of McCain’s desperate attempts to ride the coattails of “Joe’s” fame.
