Joe the Plumber new GOP economic advisor

(Jake Turcotte)

Joe 'the plumber' Wurzelbacher will join the Conservative Working Group today to advise them -- I kid you not -- on the stimulus bill. The CWG is an organization of conservative Capitol Hill staffers who meet regularly to chart GOP strategy for the week.

Sadder still, they are excited about Joe's attending. Kimberly Wallner, an aide to Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), wrote in a message to her e-mail list,“In case you weren’t planning to attend CWG tomorrow morning, you might want to reconsider because Joe the Plumber will be joining us!”

Evidently, they're all pinching themselves.

You can't make this stuff up.
