It doesn’t take but one stupid remark to lose an election. Clayton Williams, the loud-mouth oilman and cowboy, was a shoe in for Texas Governor a few years ago until he made a remark about women and rape. He said, “as long as it’s inevitable you might as well lie back and enjoy it.” Even though he apologized, Ann Richards became Governor.
The recent remark by Don Fowler, former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, about hurricane Gustav was almost as stupid as the one made by Clayton Williams. Gustav spoiled the beginning of the Republican Convention and Fowler said this demonstrated that God was on the side of Democrats. I wonder if Fowler prays that God will let his team win football games and other such things. I went to Baylor, a Christian school, and I don’t think God has ever been on the side of that football team. I often wonder whose side God is on and even which church Jesus would belong to if he were around in the flesh today. I suspect if he watched some of the actions of the Democrats or Republicans at their conventions he would throw up. I hope we don’t really believe that God sent Gustav to support the Democrats anymore than he supports a particular football team.
I suspect that God is not on the side of either the Democrats or Republicans. At one time he was on the side of America but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. The Dallas Cowboys under Tom Landry was as close to being God’s team as you can get in football. God gave up on the Cowboys when Jerry Jones took over. He probably doesn’t back any team today because most of the players are drug crazed millionaire thugs.
All this politics stuff is really interesting. We learned today that Sarah Palin’s unmarried 17 year old daughter is pregnant. Palin’s daughter Bristol is shown above holding her brother. Boy, the Democrats are going to have fun with Bristol. Of course, it would have been okay with the Democrats if the girl would have had an abortion. Palin also tried to get an Alaskan State Trooper fired who divorced her sister. We also learned that Palin’s husband was arrested for drunk driving a couple of years ago. It’s looking like McCain is going to have a tough sale with his choice of Palin as a running mate. His choice may have been as stupid as the remark by Fowler about Gustav and God.
I have been thinking about staying home on the porch on Election Day in November. It may turn out that everyone may get to stay home. Why even have an election? McCain should just go ahead and throw in the towel if Palin reveals anymore of the skeletons in her closet. It’s turning out that she is just as wild as her 17 year old daughter. Palin may turn out to be another Paris Hilton. Paris may have been the best running mate for McCain. A most interesting ticket would have been an Edwards, Hilton combination. God would have a big kick with that one. He might have even decided to end the world and get us out of our misery rather than just sending another hurricane to New Orleans.
