Even God Thinks Joe the Plumber Shouldn’t Run for Congress


From Joe the Plumber’s recent interview with WorldNetDaily:

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.'”

This breaks God’s long streak of telling people they should run for Congress. Thankfully for God, Joe is willing to let God change God’s mind:

But Wurzelbacher said he will keep that door open if God ever calls him to be that leader.
