Joe The Plumber on "Real Time" with Bill Maher (Video)

Updated: The previous video was removed by HBO. Here is another version. Enjoy. Please let us know if this one is removed. All apologies.

Joe Wurzelbacher continues to make a lot more sense than any Liberal.

I give him a lot of credit for standing up for his beliefs in very unfriendly territory.

Maher tried really hard to make Joe look ignorant, naive and foolish but Joe hits back at every shot. Maher acts like a snarky a*shole, as usual, and Joe slams him at every turn.

  1. It's impossible to make Joe the Plumber "look" dumb.

  2. Actually one doesn't have to try that hard to make Joe look like an idiot, it is pretty obvious once he opens his mouth. I think his 15 minutes of fame is way past its expiry date

  3. Snarky said, "Actually one doesn't have to try that hard to make Joe look like an idiot..."

    Typical liberal. Claims to love the regular guy but bashes him at every turn.

    Liberals are the most fascistic people on earth. Just try disagreeing with one and see what happens.

  4. Joe makes more sense than most people on tv, imo.

  5. Go Joe! And many, many of us hard working citizens welcome the Fair Tax plan and would love to eliminate the IRS once and for all.

  6. "I think his 15 minutes of fame is way past its expiry date"

    I would say that about that remorseless fat eating machine Michael Moore, but hey, the left still loves him. It's not easy for man to be more annoying than Zsa Zsa Huffington's accent.

  7. Joe the Plumber - Jimmy Stewart on steroids. The liberals worst nightmare.

  8. The libs will always hate Joe since he's the got Obama to admit to his "spread the wealth" plan. Only people who don't want to work for a living like that idea-- and they vote Democrat. Too bad too many people didn't take Obama at his word on that one.

  9. Oh my....I almost got sick to my stomach when Bill Smahermy said that he loves the troops. Pardon me. I have to find a bucket.

  10. Paules says,

    Mr. Obama is not a socialist because he wants to nudge the top tax rate from 36% to 39%. He's a socialist because he wants whole sectors of the economy placed under government control. If you think thats a good idea, consider the following: public schools, public housing, public transportation, public toilet, public accountability . . . et. al.

  11. Is it possible for Bill to fit OBambi's nuts further into his mouth?

  12. It seems to me that the right is still culturally disoriented. If they are still promoting Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber and Ann Coulter and culture-war resentment as their core message, they are obviously in deep denial about what this election really meant. If their only unifying theme is hatred or reified "elite liberals", they are doomed.

    This denial - this calcification of the worst of the right in the last eight years - is the real danger to Republicans. What they need is a grappling with the public policy issues at hand, and an imaginative constructive, conservative approach to them. But the posturing is so much easier, isn't it? And still, one presumes, really lucrative for a tiny few.

    If McCain had won, how would conservatives be reacting if the faces of the Democratic party were Keith Olbermann, Sean Penn and Michael Moore? They would be chortling with glee. I'm not against principled opposition but I think the Republicans need to move a bit beyond being the party of Beavis & Butthead

  13. The deal is that Maher, like all liberals, can't imagine that everybody isn't as shallow and venal as he is.

    Joe just keeps coming straight at you, and Maher doesn't even realize what a self-parody he is, because he thinks "irony" equals self-knowledge.

  14. " If they are still promoting Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber and Ann Coulter and culture-war resentment"

    What nonsense. Funny how people who aren't Republicans always seem to know what's wrong with the Republican party - the fact that it exists.

    You name a working-class, self-made politician; a working-class, self-made private citizen; and a Cornell-educated columnist. What do they have to do with each other, other than the fact that they're all Conservatives? There's no "culture war resentment", their only resentment is constantly being mocked by a completely biased media simply for trying to bring rationality and common sense back to the public forum.

    The only war being pushed is the class war being fomented by Barack Hussein "My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks" Obama and his ilk. Blame the rich, blame the rich, blame the rich. It's nonsensical and tiresome.

    Wow Snarky - I is awed by dem big words yuse using there (huuhhh, huhhh, huuhh, he said "calcification" huhhh).

    Your cognitive dysfunction is betrayed by citing Olbermann, Penn, and Moore as ... wait for it ..... "principled" opposition.

    (Huuhhh, huhhh, huuhh, he said "principled" huhhh, huuhh).

    'nuff said.

  16. The whole tax the rich is good theme could be destroyed if Joe would just say. Ok I'm a plummer who makes over 250,000 a year and Obama says my taxes are now 3% more a year. How much more do you think it will cost for me to do your plumming?????????

  17. Well done Joe, What a breath of fresh air. Those who criticize you are mostly paper-pushing lotus-eaters who have not done as much good for their fellow man in their whole miserable lives as you do in one busy weekend.

  18. Your cognitive dysfunction is betrayed by citing Olbermann, Penn, and Moore as ... wait for it ..... "principled" opposition.

    My point in referencing Olbermann and Moore isn't that they represent principled opposition but the opposite, that they are liberal caricatures that, had we had a Republican majority, would do little and more to hurt progressive causes. Liberal caricatures who probably are doing quite well in their bank accounts, and I don't begrudge them their paychecks any more than I begrudge Joe his paycheck. Both have a product to sell, there are consumers, and they profit, isn't that the American way? But the one thing I think the Joes, Rushes as well as Keith's and Rachel share is they are all in it for themselves and their ratings.

  19. Very Cool - DIY TRON cube -

  20. SNARKY LIBRUL & his dufus mentor Bill Maher are actually stupider than Joe the plumber.If u dont believe me,check out Joe the Vice Predt.Is there anyone stupider than that jackass?Amusingly,LIBRUL & that lil bitch Maher dont have a thing to say in his criticism.Liberal guys are such bitches,no wonder women like Palin & Hillary seem so manly in comparison to the average male Dem.

  21. Bill Maher actually polite and listening - the audience not hooting and hollering with every que from Bill - this must be an alternative universe.

    If Maher acted like this as the norm I might even watch him.

  22. Maher says he supports the troops?? Umm..didn't he just imply that they were all rapists on his show last week?

  23. "Typical liberal. Claims to love the regular guy but bashes him at every turn."

    Hellz Yeah. This Joe the Plumber guy makes $250,000 a year (that's the top one percent to you and me) and he's just a regular Joe. Just a regular six figure making plumber with a million dollar advance book deal. Just a regular fella...that Joe the Plumber, without a proper plumber's lincense.

    "Liberals are the most fascistic people on earth. Just try disagreeing with one and see what happens."

    Damn right! I remember after 9/11 if someone disagreed with Bush, it was cool to call them un American or that they were a terrorist lover. God, you're really smart, you know that?

    "I would say that about that remorseless fat eating machine Michael Moore, but hey, the left still loves him."

    Yeah, I don't get that myself. What kind of fatty (because that has everything to do with his films, right?) is for gun control, national health care and thinks that maybe, just maybe Iraq was a mistake? Having free health care for my loved ones just makes me so angry!!! The conservatives are right! Europe is full of old ideas! We shouldn't get any principles from them. Why, the Founding Fathers just came up with our government just between themselves. It's not like they got parts of it from the British govt and the Scottish and French philosophers. Hellz No. GOD BLESS AMERICA! WHICH IS ENTIRELY ORIGINAL IN EVERY ASPECT2! Europe is old! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

  24. Guess what you idiot ... Free health care for YOUR family isn't free. Somebody is paying for it and that somebody is me. Get off your fat ass, get a job and pay for it yourself.

  25. Since its impossible to be a conservative these days without being a raging hypocrite I'm going to guess you're obese, live in your parent's basement and are unemployed. Isn't it fun to be generalized about over the internet?
    National health care takes many different forms over the hundreds of countries that offer it. There is no reason why the American government can't take the best parts of each system and bring it here.

  26. Leonie Alemann4/05/2009 5:03 PM

    I really don't think there s any real way for the govt to run health care that won't result as a HUGE opportunity for fraud and theft.

    Last I heard, they were estimating approximately $2billion a year in fraud just in Medicare. Once they try to cover everyone, imagine how much those properly unprincipled can steal!

    And if you hate "managed care" now --and who doesn't? -- imagine what rationed care will be like. There will be a board of political appointees sitting in Washington DC deciding what drugs they'll allow us, what procedures will be covered, and who is eligible. It can't be everything for everybody {which is what the welfare clients get now), because that would be too expensive.

    In the UK, women with breast cancer who are over 65 simply don't rate any treatment: they are simply sent home to die of it, because the chemotherapy is too expensive, for the National Health to pay for, and by the time they work their way up the line for the limited number of surgeons and surgical suites, they'll be dead. Which does save the National Health Service the cost of treating her, doesn't it?

    That's not the United States in which I want to live. How about you?

    Much better would be simpler: why can't health insurance be handled like car insurance?

    Do away with the employer/employee group plans, remove the barriers that prevent the various medical insurance companies from operating in all 50 states, and let them compete against one another to offer the individual and family policy purchaser an array of choices, dependent on that person/family's needs and income. Since the account would not be tied to your employer, you could keep it when you changed jobs or retired. All free choice, all free enterprise. NO person has to be mandated to buy a product they don't need or want, and no one has to stay in a horrible job situation because they don't dare lose their health insurance.

    Unemployment insurance would cover your health insurance premiums. Welfare would, too. Problem solved. Everyone has access to health care.

  27. We are now beginning to see the impact of right-wing hysteria in the tragic murder of 3 policeman in Pittsburgh yesterday.

    Unless the Becks (and Beck-wannabees) walk back from that ledge, they'll be to blame for more atrocities of this sort.

    Sure, this guy may be imbalanced and no I don't think every gun owner is a potential serial killer. But it is the frenzy likely tipped this guy over the edge.

    Obama isn't coming for anyone's guns. The NRA won that battle years ago and the Democrats have long since moved on. Yet the eliminationists carry on, whipping their readers and listeners into a frenzy of panic and fear, and as a result, four little girls (and a young woman) don't have dads, two women don't have husbands and one lost her fiance. And I fear today was just the beginning.

    Hope your big paychecks from Goebbels I mean Ailes may you sleep better.

  28. Typical liberal. "Anyone who disagrees with me is a Nazi."

  29. To those who say Joe is an idiot..

    Isn't it a shame that an 'idiot' had to expose what BO was planning for our economy because the so called educated MSM wouldn't?

  30. Typical conservative:

    Beck: You know, it took me about a year to start hating the 9/11 victims' families. It took me about a year. Um, and I had such compassion for them and I really, you know, I wanted to help them, and I was behind -- let's give them money, let's get them started, and all of this stuff. And I really didn't -- all the 3,000 victims' families, I don't hate all of them, I hate about, probably about ten of them. But when I see 9/11 victim family, you know, on television, or whatever, I'm just like, 'Oh, shut up.' I'm so sick of them. Because they're always complaining. And we did our best for them. And again, it's only about ten.

    - Glenn Beck 2005

    He was suspiciously verbose about saving the jobs of public schoolteachers. Because nothing says "economic stimulus" better than saving the jobs of lethargic incompetents who kick off at 2 p.m. every day and get summers off. Actually, that's not fair: Some teachers spend long hours after school having sex with their students.

    Rush Limbaugh

    He is exaggerating the effects of the disease. He's moving all around and shaking and it's purely an act... This is really shameless of Michael J Fox. Either he didn't take his medication or he's acting.

    -Rush Limbaugh (in reference to Michael J. Fox)

    It's called Operation Chaos. The dream end, I mean, if people say what is your exit strate... strategery, the dream end of this is that if this keeps up to the convention, and we have a replay of Chicago 1968, with burning cars, protests, fires, literal riots, and all of that, that's the objective here.

  31. Attn: All Liberals and Conservatives!

    As the editor of this here blog allow me to comment:

    This is Joe the Plumber and Bill Maher here!

    This isn't like Gorby and Ronny negotiating a nuclear non-proliferation treaty; pick your battles!

    Thanks for reading... your feedback and comments are greatly appreciated.

    How we doing here?

  32. What's telling about Maher in that video, and representative of how all liberals think, is his statement about his side being able to admit when they're wrong. When he started that comment, I just started shaking my head from the cognitive dissonance so rampant among liberals. But then he went on to say that admitting when America is wrong is what he really meant. Oh, of course that's what he would mean.

    About the quotes from Ann and Rush and other conservative pundits: I challenge any liberal to say anything remotely civil about any conservative. Anything. If I quoted even a minute amount of the hateful bile I've read from liberals over the years it would make this page singe. From Tony Snow, to Cheney's heart, to Barbara Bush's medical problems, to Jerry Falwell, to ANYTHING about George W. Bush, from him molesting his daughters to losing his beloved dog, the vile thoughts of liberals are in a class all their own. And they are not at all sarcastic. They mean every word.

  33. Yeah Maher loves the troops, he called them
    rapist last week..damn im glad he's a liberal

  34. All the zombies who support Obama because, in part, he is for the working class, seem to have forgotten how derisive and dismissive he was regarding Joe. Remember when he said: "A plumber's who he's supporting?" This point needs to be hammered over and over.

  35. Sure, Jaynie59, you might be able to russle up a few uncouth quotes from the likes of Jon Stewart or Bill Maher, but although they cover the news, they are at heart, comedians. The funny thing about conservatives pundits is they are supposed to cover the news but their hateful rhetoric makes their opinion laughable. Weird how life works, huh?
