DIVINE INTERVENTION

Joe the Plumber Not Running for Office

Last fall, Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher—better known as Joe the Plumber—announced that he was considering running for Congress. Not so anymore: God told him not to. In an interview with WorldNetDaily, the GOP icon said: "You know, I talked to God about that and He was like, ‘No’... . I believe He’s gotten me on this grassroots movement. If I can encourage leaders to step up, that’s what I would like to do.” Yet he added that he'll reconsider, if God tells him to.
