Joe the Plumber now Joe the Attorney?

Jake Turcotte

(Read caption) Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, who became known as "Joe the Plumber" during the 2008 U.S. Presidential election campaign, attends a press conference announcing a federal civil rights lawsuit filed on his behalf against the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, in Washington on Thursday.

It would be a heckuva lot more dramatic if Joe the Plumber announced he was representing himself in the lawsuit.

Entering the courtroom with legal briefs in one hand and plunger in the other. Vowing to flush the legal system clean of impropriety and wrong doing.

It kinda has a John Grisham feel to it.

Sure, Joe doesn't have a law degree, but he doesn't have a plumber's license either. And in just a few short months, he's been a renaissance man. Campaigner, author, war correspondent, economic advisor, speaker -- why not lawyer?

Come on, Joe!

In case you haven't heard, Joe the Plumber (Wurzelbacher) is suing. He's going after the former Ohio government workers who did some searches on his background following the conversation he had with then-candidate Barack Obama last October.

You remember the day...
