Silly God…I Said “Democrat”

C-SPAN served up a piping hot casserole of “crazy” yesterday morning while John Barrasso (R-WY) was taking calls. A man claiming to have followed Sen. Tom Coburn‘s (R-OK) instructions to pray that someone wouldn’t make a manager’s amendment vote on health care Sunday night called the show, saying that he prayed Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) would die.

The frantic caller said he was concerned that God answered his prayers but had killed the wrong senator because Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) had missed the morning’s vote.

You gotta feel for the guy. I meam, it’s a fear we all live with — you pray for the death of Democrat but then there’s always that slight chance the “big guy” will misunderstand and take a Republican…keeps me up at night.

I would just like to point out that this caller’s vote counts the same as yours and mine. Sigh. Video below:
