Joe Wurzelbacher lashed out at John McCain on Tuesday, the man who made him famous as "Joe the Plumber."
Wurzelbacher told conservative radio host Glenn Beck that he felt “dirty” after “being on the campaign trail and seeing some of the things that take place.”
Recalling a conversation he had with McCain about the $700 billion financial industry bailout in September, Wurzelbacher said: “When I was on the bus with him, I asked him a lot of questions about the bailout because most Americans did not want that to happen.”
“I asked him some pretty direct questions,” he continued. “Some of the answers you guys are gonna receive — they appalled me, absolutely. I was angry. In fact, I wanted to get off the bus after I talked to him.”
While he was critical of John McCain during the interview, he had nothing but praise for Sarah Palin, calling her "absolutely the real deal."
