Kumbaya, Distinguished Gentlemen
As a leader of the "Pray at the Pump" movement, Rocky Twyman spent the summer visiting service stations to ask God for lower gas prices. But after he saw the House of Representatives collapse in chaos as it attempted to pass a financial bailout on Monday, Twyman headed to Capitol Hill yesterday with a new cause.
"Join us in prayer for healing our U.S. Economy NOW," his hand-lettered sign announced as he stopped passersby across the street from the Capitol. "Our Congress Needs God and Prayer Now."
Within hours, Twyman's prayers were answered. As if touched by the hand of God, Senate leaders abandoned their partisan ways and declared a new day of harmony and togetherness.
"We're going to have a significant bipartisan victory on the rescue plan here in the Senate tonight," Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) exulted after lunching with his fellow Republican senators. "I think you're going to see on display tonight the Senate at its best."
