This Vote Goes Out to the Big Guy
I'm not a big sports fan. But I do enjoy the post-game interviews, wherein a member of the, say, Cavaliers, thanks God for his victory, implying that God simply wanted the Clippers to lose that day (in fact, it seems that God is particularly unhappy with the Clippers, and has been for some time).
I watch a lot more politics than I do sports. So it's good to see Michelle Bachmann bringing that sort of analysis to my preferred subject. Speaking at a "tele-town hall" on Wednesday, Bachmann explained that “we all need to consider that in God’s timing that he may have allowed us, as members of Congress, to be in the position that we’re in just for this specific issue right now. Everything that all of us have worked together and labored for over the years, all of it could be undermined with this one bill."
In other words, God put Michelle Bachmann in Congress so she could defeat health-care reform. As for the 83 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, or the 256 members of the House Democratic Caucus? Well, it seems that God has mixed feelings on the bill, and put them there to pass it. Maybe God is particularly interested in one of Bachmann's amendments?
