Joe the Plumber - Reader of Left I on the News?

Right after the last "Presidential" debate, I wrote a post entitled "(Tap) Dancing with the Stars," about Obama and McCain tap-dancing around the answer to the question "should health care be a marketable commodity?" Well, perhaps "Joe the Plumber" (if you didn't watch last night's debate and haven't heard of Joe, you soon will) is a reader of Left I on the News (or, more likely, he came up with the obvious analogy on his own), but last night he said this to Katie Couric:
Obama came to my neighborhood and my son and I were outside tossing the football, and all of a sudden he showed up, and there went our football tossing for a while. And, you know, neighbors were outside asking him questions, and I didn't think they were asking him tough enough questions, so I thought, you know, I'll go over there. You know, I've always wanted to ask one of these guys a question and really corner them and get them to answer a question of--for once instead of tap dancing around it. And unfortunately I asked the question but I still got a tap dance. Do you - almost as good as Sammy Davis Jr.
