Joe the Plumber is now an elected official in Lucas County and AOL got a chance to speak with him, though I imagine Joe will speak with anybody these days, so it's not that big of a score.
In Q&A format, AOL ran through the important questions of our day for a politician. Not that Joe has a ton of power as Republican committee member out near Toledo, but he's an elected official nonetheless and we should know how he feels about the most challenging issues confronting our nation.
Here's just a few nuggets of insightful queries from AOL. Make sure you click on over and check out the full questionnaire, stuffed to the brim with engrossing and thought-provoking ideas.
Have you ever cried during a movie?
I definitely cried when "Old Yeller" got shot. I also cried in "Remember the Titans."
Which animal do you most identify with?
I never thought about that. I've got a big, beautiful lab at home that I love more than life itself. I guess I'd have to go with a dog.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how attractive are you?
I hope I'm at least a 7.
Do you type with two fingers, or all ten?
I'm moving up in the world. It's three now.
If you could host a dinner party with any four people, living or dead, who would you invite?
Robert E. Lee; he was a man of honor. Abraham Lincoln; I always wanted to know what his plan was for reconstruction; George Washington, just because I admire the hell out of him. And round it out with Jesus Christ. He's both living and dead.
If you could pick one age to be for the rest of your life what would it be?
When I was 28, I was benching well over 450, pressing over 1,000 pounds on the dog sled, and I felt like I was in the best shape of my life.
A gigantic failure and abdication of journalistic responsibility, if you ask me. They didn't even ask him if he prefers vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
