Here comes a group groan. Joe the Plumber is coming to Kansas City on September 16 to promote a deeply unfunny book of comic strips called Microman USA. No word on where Joe will be, but we'll let you know when we find out.
Joe the Plumber (real name: Joe Wurzelbacher) didn't write or draw the strip (those honors go to Robert Stern and Mark Hill). Joe is listed as introducing Microman.
"Microman will make you laugh and feel good about fighting for the principles that our founding fathers envisioned," Joe says in the press release.
Laughing? Feel good? Ready to fight for those principles? Me neither. But here are more Microman strips for your enjoyment(?) here.
Update (3:17 p.m. Wednesday, August 26): We're told Joe the Plumber is part of the American Liberty Tour and will join a tea party at Pierson Auditorium (5100 Rockhill Road).
