“Children and lunatics believe fairytales and have imaginary friends, which are you?” ~ Craig Smith
This is the same man who recently proclaimed three days of state-wide prayer for God to bless Texas with rain. Seriously:
[…] I, RICK PERRY, Governor of Texas, under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and Statutes of the State of Texas, do hereby proclaim the three-day period from Friday, April 22, 2011, to Sunday, April 24, 2011, as Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas. I urge Texans of all faiths and traditions to offer prayers on that day for the healing of our land, the rebuilding of our communities and the restoration of our normal and robust way of life.
But wait, there’s more! May I gently remind our readers that almost every one of the candidates firmly believe they have a personal relationship with a magical space daddy.
According to themselves, God told all three of them to run for president.
So far there’s no word from God whether He intends all three of them to collectively share the presidential job.
Laugh all you want, but make no mistake: If these people were to hear a voice in their head telling them to press the Big Red Button to start World War III, there’s a fairly good chance they will obey that voice. Because that’s how religious people prefer to take important life decisions, particularly when they have the power to “save” heathens.
And I haven’t even mentioned Sarah Palin.
We are so fucked.
