Joe Wurzelbacher Attacked by Netroots Mobs!

Here's the new McCain ad buy, featuring “Joe the Plumber”:

This is, of course, Joe Wurzelbacher, the Ohio "Joe Sixpack" dude, who was the initial focus of last's night's presidential debate, and who is now the target of a coordinated defamation campaign by the radical left, which includes the release of Wurzelbacher's home address at Daily Kos.

The New Editor puts the Wurzelbacher smears in perspective:
By now everyone who follows politics has heard of Joe Wurzelbacher, a guy from Toledo known now as 'Joe the Plumber,' who asked a question of Barack Obama in a campaign rope line, and was referenced numerous times in last night's debate.

Like many of us, Mr. Wurzelbacher has questions about Barack Obama's tax policy, among other things.

So what happens to Mr. Wurzelbacher for expressing his views?

Reports in the mainstream media appear claiming that he is
unlicensed (even though he doesn't need one as an employee of a business or as a contractor working on a residence), and that he apparently has a tax lien filed against him.

Not to be outdone, the Daily Kos published his home address
for all the world to see.

The Democratic Underground just threw whatever they could at the guy.

Better think a little longer next time if you wish to criticize a Chicago Democrat running for president (or anything else, for that matter).

You might get 'the treatment.'

Update: Atlantic Monthly smear artist Andrew Sullivan chimes in -- in what appears to be part of his full court press to be named honorary Democratic Party Chicago precinct captain --
here and here.

Update II:
More from the excruciatingly slimy Sullivan, who takes issue with the fact that Joe is Wurzelbacher's middle name, not his first.
Frankly, nothing is beneath the left these days ... nothing!
