eCommerce: Joe The Plumber

Two unpleasant hangovers from the McCain campaign are the new Sarah Palin phenomenon and of course Joe The Plumber. Joe, as we know, is not really called Joe and neither is he a plumber.
His latest wheeze? A website (of course) on which Joe is keepin’ it real and charging a $14.95 annual fee. A blogger writes:
“YOU THE PEOPLE can now obtain a Freedom Membership from Joe the Plumber’s hastily-put-together-to-capitalize-on-his-media-celebrity-before-it-expires Web site, SecureOurDream.com. The Membership, like Freedom itself, ain’t free…but the $14.95 yearly fee practically pays for itself! With it, you’ll get:

1) Total Access to “Joe The Forum” where you may chat directly with Joe
2) Subscription to the “Joe The Blog” monthly newsletter
3) Free Shipping on all “Joe The Plumber” merchandise
4) Free Signed Copy of Joe’s forthcoming book “Joe The Plumber” – Fighting for the American Dream
5) Become an integral part of an American movement to restore our government to the people”
