Joe the Plumber NOT in Defiance, Ohio

So Joe the Plumber stood McCain up... in Defiance, Ohio of all places! And apparently 2/3 of the crowd was the ENTIRE Defiance School District, who was bused in from their schools.

From MSNBC's Chueck Todd: "A local school district official confirmed after the event that of the 6,000 people estimated by the fire marshal to be in attendance this morning, more than 4,000 were bused in from schools in the area. The entire 2,500-student Defiance School District was in attendance, the official said, in addition to at least three other schools from neighboring districts, one of which sent 14 buses."

What is going on with this??? Not everyone in Defiance is a Republican....

So yeah... what a crock of shit the McCain rally was. I was gonna post the exact same Joe Plumber story but you beat me to it! And yes, they really did bus in every kid, K-12 in the city school district.

I must be out of touch. Was Joe the Plummer running for President? Might they have bused the kids in as a school event to hear from the Candidate? Had the candidate from the opposite side booked an event there, do you think the school district might have done the same thing?
