Let's take the "Joe the Plumber" example a little further

McCain: "I have been to the midwest and I've met a plumber named Joe. Now, you see Joe has worked really hard, worked 23 hour days with no vacations for 60 years for a company that has ten locations. Joe has been offered ownership of all ten locations. But because an income of $10,000,000 a year is what Mr. Obama considers 'rich', Joe, who has been a hard worker working 23 hour days with no breaks, not even a lunch break, has been thinking about not taking over the ten plumbing businesses. You see Mr. Obama wants to spread the money around, to take money from Joe and give it to other people, like students who want to go to college.

And that's not all. What if Joe the Plumber was able to marry a rich heiress who was also a junkie and then wanted to run for the Senate from Arizona? Hmm? Then he'd really be up the creek."
