When the 112th Congress began this week, we did a quickie non-wonk guide of three tidbits to know

that you could use if pressed at a party that wasn't focused on the "important" stuff
Here's a fourth: This Congress is less than one week old and already the National Republican Congressional Committee
has U.S. Rep. David Wu
(D-Ore.) in its political crosshairs.
Since Wednesday, we've received one press release a day from the NRCC plugging Wu's name into its template of vulnerable Democrats to criticize him for votes like this one
Look, WW has never been
a huge Wu fan (though we give the seven-term rep some credit
But it is worth adding this fourth tidbit just as an example how even in the first week of 2011, the focus is already on the 2012 election. Certainly seems like Wu is aware of it.
