Rick Perry’s tongue was apparently taken hostage by the Devil in last night’s 427th Republican Presidential debate on FOX. No doubt exhausted from praying for rain in Texas, Perry stammered almost incoherently through answers, pithy good-ole boy one liners and shots at Mitt Romney. Certainly in his fatigue, and with God apparently away on a side project with the rest of the Universe, Satan snuck right in there and wrangled a hold of the Governor’s tongue.
This writer wonders if God hasn’t forsaken Perry altogether. Then again, Jesus was tempted in the desert. Maybe the economic, educational, social and literal desert that Texas is becoming offers Perry a chance to prove himself worthy of God’s graces, enough that God will bestow upon him the Presidency by casting a spell upon all of us at the ballot box. If that doesn’t work he’ll no doubt offer up a staffer’s only begotten son.
It should come as a great disappointment to Perry that he’s been praying for rain for almost a year now, and last week Obama flies in for one day and it rained in Waco and Houston. So if God won’t make it rain for Perry, and he won’t keep Satan off Perry’s tongue, has God abandoned Perry? If he has, guess that means, our dear Lord will back a Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination. God help us.
