A few weeks ago, I bought you the sad tale of Stuart Shepard, a representative of Convervative group Focus On The Family, who was praying for the wrath of God to intercede and rain out Barry's big outdoor speech in Denver.
Just in case you missed it, here's the video in question.
Needless to say, I think we all remember how this turned out.
The weather in Denver was spotless all week, so I guess we can say Shepard's D-Bag Status has been certified, if nothing else. Oddly enough, there was indeed lots of rain that seems to be ruining a Convention, it just doesn't happen to be the one Focus On The Family was praying for.
Not to be outdone, the DNC couldn't wait to announce God's endorsement of their candidate.
A former Democratic National Committee chairman has apologized for suggesting that Hurricane Gustav's expected arrival as Republicans prepare to open their national convention is a sign that God favours Democrats.And here's the video in question. Never mind the fact that it's hella creepy that someone would be recording a private conversation on an airplane. Fowler is just as much of a dumbass as Shepard for somehow opining that God is on the side of The Chosen One (the GOP's words, not mine).
During a flight from Denver to South Carolina last Friday, Don Fowler - who was DNC chair in 1995 and 1996 - was recorded telling a fellow passenger that it appears Gustav will make landfall on Monday. He said that just demonstrates that God is on the side of Democrats.
The person whom Fowler was talking to is not visible in the video, but was identified on the conservative Web site www.redstate.com as Representative John Spratt, a South Carolina Democrat.
Fowler told The Associated Press that he was making fun of comments made by the Rev. Jerry Falwell.
Of course, the GOP is calling for Obama to do his weekly bus toss on Fowler. Never mind the fact that they crossed the whole God/Obama line themselves a few weeks back.
This whole thing makes me wonder exactly why people think God gives a crap one way or another which guy wins the election. Clearly, he doesn't. If God cared enough about who the President is, wouldn't he give us somebody, I dunno, perfect?
Clearly, McCain and Obama are quite a few steps for sainthood. I wish the idiots praying for them would admit as much and keep God's name out they mouth.
Question: Does the GOP look like a bunch of fatlipped morons for asking Obama to denounce Fowler when they more or less have overstepped the God/Politricks line themselves? What (if anything) should be done to Fowler? Do you think God cares about who's running the country?
