Joe the Plumber on collision course with McCain-Palin

Joe the Plumber is set to crash John McCain's reunion with Sarah Palin.

Samuel "Joe" Wurzelbacher, who recently said McCain "screwed my life up," is slated to appear along with J.D. Hayworth at an anti-tax rally in Phoenix on Friday. Meanwhile in Tucson, McCain will reunite at a rally with the former Alaska governor.

Wurzelbacher has made it clear he has a bone to pick with the 2008 GOP presidential ticket. "McCain was trying to use me," he said in a radio interview last month. "I happened to be the face of middle Americans. It was a ploy."

Hayworth is challenging McCain for the GOP nomination. His campaign declined to say if an endorsement from Wurzelbacher was forthcoming.
