Joe The Plumber Bails On McCain

Check out this hilarious blooper from McCain's rally in OH today. After calling on his new found poster boy to stand up and be recognized, the Senator realizes that he's nowhere to be found. McCain not-so-quickly recovers by saying, "You're all Joe the Plumber. So all of you stand up!"

Maybe Joe was in the studio recording his new album? Classic.

And apparently he needed to bus in a boat load of kids to fill the audience.

A local school district official confirmed after the event that of the 6,000 people estimated by the fire marshal to be in attendance this morning, more than 4,000 were bused in from schools in the area. The entire 2,500-student Defiance School District was in attendance, the official said, in addition to at least three other schools from neighboring districts, one of which sent 14 buses.

UPDATE: John Amato:

I guess McCain didn't mind when Joe the Plumber was made a fool of by Sheppard Smith and said this about Joe.

"...it just gets frightening sometimes."
