Joe the Plumber update (and epitaph on another McCain campaign fantasy)

The premise of Joe "the Plumber" Wurzelbacher's complaints about Barack Obama's tax plan was ill-informed. Contrary to Wurzelbacher's claims, "neither his personal taxes nor those of the business where he works are likely to rise if Mr. Obama's tax plan were to go into effect."

As CBS News reported, even "Joe The Plumber" acknowledges this fact now:

So today, Joe, who said he makes much less than $250,000, reluctantly admitted Obama would lower his taxes.

"I would, if you believe him, I would be receiving his tax cuts," Wurzelbacher said.
