Not that the Republicans SHOULD catch a break, but this is just too good
Posted by Jill | 11:33 PM
You really have to wonder about the Republicans this year. First Stuart Shepard of Focus on the Family asked his minions to pray for "torrential" rain to fall on Mile High Stadium tonight -- and the weather was gorgeous. Now it looks like instead of raining on Obama's parade, New Orleans may drown again while Republicans party hearty in the Twin Cities.

Three years after Katrina, the city's residents STILL have to ask if the levees will hold, and the hydraulic pumps STILL don't work. And next week the Republicans get to try to defend their party's record over the last eight years while the hideous neglect of New Orleans plays out yet again at the same time.

Of course Gustav is not something that could have been predicted to coincide so exactly with the Republican National Convention. But what the McCain campaign might have considered was the name of the place where John McCain is going to have a rally and name his running mate tomorrow:
Tickets are still available for Sen. John McCain's Friday, Aug. 29, rally at Wright State University's Nutter Center in Fairborn.

How fitting.

See, that's the thing with prayer.... the devil is in the details... like where the rain is supposed to be. Stupid damn fools using their "prayers" like that.

FOF forgot that the while the Goddess answers prayers, she may decide the answer is "NO". You don't always get what you want, but you get what you need. (They needed a lesson in humility, although they certainly won't learn it.)

Was God supporting Obama or dissing Dobson? Inquiring minds want to know!
