It’s a good thing that God plays such an active role in Republican politics.
Here he is, putting Sarah Palin forward as their vice-presidential candidate in 2008:
Sarah Palin believed that Sen. John McCain chose her to be his running mate in 2008 because of “God’s plan,” according to a top political strategist in the Arizona Republican’s campaign.
Schmidt said he asked Palin about her serenity in the face of becoming “one of the most famous people in the world.” He quoted her as saying, “It’s God’s plan.”
Here he is, placing Michael Steele as chairman of the Republican National Committee:
I’m not defined by this job. When this job is over I will go back to doing something else but God, I really believe has placed me here for a reason…
And here he is, persuading Michele Bachmann to run for Congress:
God then called me to run for the United States Congress, and I thought ‘What in the world will that be for?’ and my husband said ‘You need to do this,’ and I wasn’t so sure, and we took 3 days and we fasted and we prayed and we said, ‘Lord. Is this what you want? Is this your will?’ and after long about the afternoon of day two, he made that calling sure.
With God so squarely on their side, and stage-managing key appointments, the Republican Party is in the sad and sorry state it’s in. Imagine how badly off they would be without God’s personal intervention.
