Oklahoma Gov. Now Favors Rick Perry's 'Tell God To Fix It' Crisis Policy

News

Lately God has been shooting firestorms at the wingnuts in the American South like a furious undersexed teenager holding a paintball gun, something that has left wingnuts a little confused. Republican governors are the most mystified of all about this turn of events, because they are being asked to show something called "leadership in times of crisis," which they have always put in the "God's job" column of their state task lists. Republicans handle election campaigns and tax cuts and Kochsucking, that is what is on their list. But to make this clearer, Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin is the latest GOP governor to join Rick Perry in formally asking God "what the hell?"  Fallin has adeclared a public day of prayer on Sunday saying, "do a rain dance everybody." Oh hey, Rick Perry tried that, but God didn't listen. Will God be more impressed with Oklahoma's prayers?


Here is the statement from Gov. Fallin's website:

“For the safety of our firefighters and our communities and the well-being of our crops and livestock, this state needs the current drought to come to an end. The power of prayer is a wonderful thing, and I would ask every Oklahoman to look to a greater power this weekend and ask for rain.”

Secretary of Agriculture Jim Reese said he appreciated the governor’s call for prayer and would be saying his own this Sunday.

“Farmers across the state are really suffering under these conditions,” Reese said. “I’m glad the governor is issuing this call to prayer, and I hope it helps deliver the rain we need soon.”

By "greater power" she means, "not the governor, just someone who has some authority to help people out of this catastrophe, which is not her." [Governor Mary Fallin via Salon]

It was bound to happen. We're now watching Republican congressmen react to Donald Trump sitting in the Oval Office and saying "RUSSIA IF YOU'RE LISTENING" during an interview with George Stephanopoulos, literally inviting hostile foreign powers to attack the 2020 election for him like Russia did in 2016. And if you thought there wouldn't be at least one of them to say the quiet part loud and state for the record that crime is good if it helps Republicans win, then you haven't been paying attention to the Republican party in quite a while.

Enter GOP Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, AKA the committee whose members really should know better, even the Republicans, but unfortunately they don't because A) they're idiots and B) they've been sucking at Devin Nunes's dairy cows' teats (ALLEGEDLY) for too long:
