I'm Not A Plumber. I'm Nothing You've Heard.

The G.O.P. is not so much determined to repeat past mistakes as it is to multiply them exponentially. They're intent on repeating the Delaware Miracle by tapping television superstar "Joe" "The Plumber" "Wurzelbacher" to run for Congress:

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, the Ohio resident who rose to prominence during the 2008 presidential cycle as "Joe the Plumber" and later served as a war correspondent, is now considering a run for Congress - and national Republicans appear to be on board.

Wurzelbacher would challenge longtime Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur, who represents Ohio's 9th congressional district, an area that includes Toledo. Jon Stainbrook, chairman of the Lucas County Republican Party, told the Toledo Blade that there exists a "high-level interest in the national Republican Party" in a Wurzelbacher candidacy, adding: "We are encouraging Joe to run."

Run, Joe, Run!

Asked about a possible run, he told the Blade: "I think it's a very interesting idea. That's as much as I can say."

We know, Joe.
