Last year at the height of his "fame," Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher — aka "Joe the Plumber" — said that he was considering a run for public office. "I’d be up for it," he said. Excited fans even set up a "Draft Joe the Plumber" site. But in a new interview with WorldNetDaily, Wurzelbacher said that he now isn’t planning to run because God doesn’t want him to:
Asked if he has plans to run for public office, he replied, "I hope not. You know, I talked to God about that and he was like, 'No.'"
So, to recap divine endorsements for this week: Sanford, yes; Wurzelbacher, no.
Strange and mysterious indeed.
