Fox’s Chris Wallace talked to John McCain about “Joe the Plumber,” a voter who questioned Barack Obama’s tax plan. McCain said that members of the Obama campaign “savaged” Joe the Plumber after McCain mentioned him 21 times during the final presidential debate.

Chris Wallace suggested that McCain may hold some responsibility for the way the media has scrutinized Joe the Plumber by repeatedly using his name during the presidential debate. McCain placed the blame for the examination of Joe’s life at the feet of the Obama campaign.
