Praying for Rain

Our noble born-again Georgia Governor held a prayer vigil yesterday at the capitol to pray for rain. If you’re not aware, Georgia is in an historic drought at this time.

Weather today? Unseasonably warm, 20% chance of showers.

My question: If it rains tonight, will this be seen as “the answer”? Of course, if it does shower tonight, the forecast is for very little of it. I would think this could be interpreted as a tease. Would Governor Perdue’s god be deemed a terrible prankster; giving us just a taste of what is needed?

I find this sort of thing a ridiculous political sop to the GOP’s right-leaning religious base. This sort of crap causes me to want to be a Pastafarian. We might as well hit up the homeopathic remedy producers to walk around spitting on the sidewalk (because we know that less is more in homeopathy).
