Joe the Plumber

Enjoying his 15 minutes of fame...

Some call him "the real hero of the debate"... Joe is Joe Wurzelbacher, a Toledo, Ohio plumber who CNN dubs "McCain's best hope." The Guardian (UK) writes "Suddenly it is as if the whole election hinges on his views." The New York Times says Joe has become a "a kind of proxy for all of the country's working people"...

Joe on YouTube

Joe was mentioned 23 times in last night's presidential debate. There are numerous Joe the Plumber remixes on YouTube, hundreds want to be his friend on Facebook, and words "Plumber" and "Joe" are the two most searched keywords on Twitter.

Michelle Malkin: Keep talking, Smirky: Biden attacks Joe the Plumber; Gaffetastic Joe B. spells “J-O-B-S,” a “three-letter word”

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
