A book deal for Joe the Plumber?

It probably should surprise no one, but rumor has it that Joe the Plumber (aka Sam Wurzelbacher) is being represented by a lawyer who is shopping a book deal for Joe with some of the Los Angeles talent agencies.

At least that's according to a post by MSNBC's Keith Olbermann last night on Daily Kos. Olbermann says he got this from "an unimpeachable source in the publishing industry."

I guess it's only fair. If Tina Fey can score a six-figure book deal fueled by her Sarah Palin imitation, then why shouldn't Joe get a piece of the action as well?

But once again, it isn't for nothing that they call this "the silly season."

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.
