I am not Joe The Plumber.

There is a McCain ad I keep seeing on TV that bothers me a bit. This ad plagiarizes the Microsoft "I am a PC" commercial which in turn parodies Apple's now famous PC vs Mac commercials. It starts with a clip of Barack Obama talking to Joe The Plumber and telling him that he wants to "spread the wealth." Then it shows person after person saying the phrase "I am Joe The Plumber" into the camera. I tried, quite unsuccessfully, to find the McCain ad on YouTube, but I did find the Microsoft one. Enjoy.
