Tell God to reserve some busses

Well at least they're honest. Kansas Senator Brownback's "prayer coordinator" Lonnie Berger is invoking the power of prayer to change the mind of the invisible creator of the universe so that "Christians" as he defines the term, will come out and vote on August 11th in the straw poll for Republican candidates. Apparently it's contemptible for Democratic politicians to adjust their opinions according to poll results, but it's OK for that wishy-washy Yahweh to consider what Lonnie and his Corn Fed Christians want done while making his inscrutable plans for our vast and unfathomable universe.

If God forgets, or if God doesn't hear from them, then the "Christians" may not get what they want, because he then won't have "supernaturally activated" them as Berger asks and "when Christians stay home, the enemy wins." I guess I'm the enemy. I feel so proud to be listed among the other enemies like Tom Jefferson, George Washington, James Madison, Tom Paine and Ben Franklin. No wonder they wanted us to keep and bear arms.

Lonnie also wants Kansans to "Pray that God would use this poll to weed out those candidates that would push our country away from the Lord." I really don't know if God is enough of a flip flopper to respond to such demands or that he's uncertain enough to need political advice from a raving lunatic like Berger. I don't know if praying for the logistics needed to organize a fleet of buses for the pilgrimage to Ames will be as effective as dealing directly with the bus company, but it's all up to God and his willingness to treat demented morons as a superior breed. I suspect he won't and in fact I'm sure he never has and never will do that or anything else, but what do you expect from me - I'm the enemy.

I don't know. This guy God has been giving Bush & Co. a tremendous amount of leeway with their shenanigans for the past 6+ years.

Whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad. Since there's nothing but loonies and nutbars in the administration, maybe it's a sign?
