Dear Rick Perry: God is not interested in your prayers.
Posted by Jill | 12:43 PM
As far back as 2007, I was quoting the old Jewish joke that you can find in Leo Rosten's The Joys of Yiddish, the punch line of which is "Because day after day after day, all you do is mutsche me!" On a less humorous note, Matthew 6.5 says:

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Funny how when Rick Perry talks about throwing up his hands and saying, "OK, God, YOU fix this mess", and holds his massive stadium prayergasms, he forgets this one passage from his precious Bible.

Well, if he's left Texas in God's hands, God is telling Rick Perry just what He thinks of Texas and about how day after day, all Perry does is mutsche him:
Dozens of wildfires continues to burn out of control across tinder-dry Texas on Monday as calls went out for off-duty firefighters around the region to report for duty.

The Texas Forest Service reported 56 separate fires on Sunday that had burned some 30,000 acres. Neighborhoods across eastern and central parts of the state were reporting widespread damage.

Authorities said the fires were propelled partly by the high winds brought by Tropical Storm Lee. A late-summer cool front brought winds of 30 to 40 mph to the region, which is already gripped by one of the worst droughts in history.

The National Weather Service said South, Central and East Texas were all under "red flag" warnings for critical fire conditions until late Sunday night.

If Irene is God's punishment for the Godless heathen homosexual socialist Jewish commie Northeast, then what of the Texas wildfires?

The wildfires are the handiwork of the antichrist, I'm sure. The one in the WH.

Perry prays for rain while cutting the budget of the Texas Forestry Commission and then begging the USDA Forest Service for funds and manpower to take up the slack he's created. He's really good at begging for federal funding and federal help while at the same time bashing the federal government for simply existing.

Last I heard, over 500 homes had burned, there had been several civilian deaths, and at least three firefighters have died in Texas this summer -- two Texas Forestry Commission employees got caught by a wildfire near Jasper, and a member of an out-of-state hotshot crew died out in west Texas because they were trying to run a handline in 110 heat. There are firefighters from all over the country in Texas but Perry bloviates about how each state can go it alone.

Based on Perry's performance so far, it there was a God, He'd be more likely to hit Texas with frogs or blood than with water.
