Joe the Plumber Fulfills Prediction

As soon as Joe the Plumber erupted onto the political stage, it was inevitable the he, too, would become a memoirist.  At least, he has signed a book deal, something I predicted on October 18 here. Of course, he is not really writing his own memoir.  You can see what the BBC said here.  And The New York Times here. The LA Times was pretty brutal, even in a news story. See the comments especially.  The book is coming to a bookstore near you–by December 1!!!

Joe swears he is not cashing in on his 15 minutes of fame.  And that he is “spreading the wealth” by choosing a little-known publisher.  Do you believe him?
