It finally happened. God woke up and got pissed.
He realized that there is a whole group of fanatical jerks, using His name to bash just about anybody else who believes that there is an important role of government in the lives of American citizens.
What does God do when he is pissed?
God sends natural disasters, of course. Just ask any TV preacher when he’s not asking for money. (OK, you’ll have to interrupt him.)
This time, he sent rain. And not just any rain – but about 4 inches of rain in a 12 hour period to an area that was already saturated.
God obviously is pissed at the Tea Partiers. Can you blame him? I am too.

From the start of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, every Republican leader and right-wing pundit has criticized Barack Obama for not being tough enough on Russians. If we could interview a generic Republican leader, the interview would go something like this…
Journalist: “Generic Republican Leader, would you have a few minutes to talk about Barack Obama’s response to the crisis in Ukraine?”
Generic Republican Leader: “Yeah, sure.”
Journalist: “Do you agree with the way Obama is handling the crisis?”
Journalist: “And do what?”
GRL: “Obama needs to lead.”
GRL: “By being a strong and decisive leader.”
Journalist: “Which is…?”
GRL: “Which is the opposite of a weak leader like Obama.”
Journalist: “So what, do you think, is Obama’s weakness?”
GRL: “He’s not a strong leader.”
Journalist: “But what he should do to become a strong leader?”
GRL: “He should act decisively.”
Journalist: “And by ‘act” you mean…?
GRL: “Not mince words, like he does.”
Journalist: “Should military option be on the table?”
GRL: “All options should be on the table – military, diplomatic… but not vegetarian, I hate that option.”
Journalist: “Do you think it’s time for diplomacy?”
GRL: “No, it’s time to send Putin a message.”
Journalist: “But not for diplomacy?”
GRL: “No, because we’re just going to send a message, and we’re not interested in anything Putin has to say to us.”
Journalist: “So what message should Obama send to Putin?”
GRL: “It has to be strong message.”
Journalist: “About what?”
GRL: “That we’re strong and we’re not going to stand for it.”
Journalist: “And what should we do if Putin ignores our message?”
GRL: “We should act.”
Journalist: “Act how?”
Journalist: “But what should we do exactly?”
GRL: “We should put an end to Putin’s imperial ambitions.”
Journalist: “Would you oppose Obama if he proposed a military action?”
Journalist: “Would you oppose Obama–
Journalist: “Sorry, I haven’t actually finished the question.”
GRL: “Oh. I thought you did. What was the question?”
Journalist: “Would you oppose Obama–
GRL: “Yes. Absolutely. My answers still stands.”
Journalist: “So what do you propose?”
GRL: “We need to send him a strong message.
Journalist: “To Putin?”
GRL: “No, to Obama. What about Putin?”
Journalist: “You also wanted to send a strong message to Putin.”
GRL: “Right. Then we need to send two strong messages. Or we can just send it to Obama and copy Putin on it.”
Journalist: “Shouldn’t Obama, as president, send the message himself?”
GRL: “No, he’s too weak.”
Journalist: “But it’s just a message. Obama can just type it and press ‘Send’.”
GRL: “No, Obama needs to physically print the message and walk to the mailbox to send it. Otherwise Putin will see that Obama is too weak to even walk to a mailbox. We need the president who can not only talk the talk, but also walk the walk. We need a strong president!”
Journalist: “Do you think Putin is a strong leader?”
GRL: “Yes, definitely.”
Journalist: “So do you think Obama should be more like Putin?”
GRL: “………….Have I told you that Obamacare will kill three million jobs?”
Journalist: “Thank you for the interview. Any last words for our readers, Generic Republican Leader?”
GRL: “Yes. Vote GOP in 2014! Unlike Obama, we have a clear, strong, and decisive foreign policy!”
