Weather forecast: God hates Republicans

Remember when Michele Bachmann said this….

“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?'”

And a crazy rabbi said this

“Yes, there is a direct connection between earthquakes and homosexuality. There was in Haiti, and it is here in New York, in Washington D.C…”

Well there’s a big storm brewing in Tampa Bay Florida—where thousands of Republicans will gather on August 27 for the Republican National Convention—and suddenly God has left the building.

It seems the GOP has lost touch with its roots and gone logical, issuing warnings, devising contingency plans, and attributing the imminent hurricane to something called “science”.

So please allow me to evoke the almighty in its place:

God hates Kid Rock, stupidity, fashion crimes, and animal cruelty more than gay marriage and Medicare. As such, he has decided to rain hard on the GOP parade.

Let’s just pray he does so before this unholy union takes the stage.

In other news, please join me next weekend where I will be blogging from the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Clear skies ahead.
