I Ain't Superstitious

Desperation and stupidity, being kissing cousins, tend to produce some pretty funny-lookin' offspring:

ATLANTA - What to do when the rain won’t come? If you’re Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, you pray.

The governor will host a prayer service next week to ask for relief from the drought gripping the Southeast.

“The only solution is rain, and the only place we get that is from a higher power,” Perdue spokesman Bert Brantley said on Wednesday.

On the off chance that don't work, Perdue has planned to sacrifice a chicken on the steps of the Capitol, and stick pins in his Algore voodoo doll.

Nice to see PMSNBC turn into The Onion. I swear I thought this was a parody at first.

hey, didn't souxsie and the banshees do some song about how they needed rain in England and shot cannons at the sky?

He's not superstitious -- let's just say, he's a-little-stitious, to paraphrase Steve Carrell. That's why he thought a bit of prayer won't hurt. What a dimwit.

Guv'nor Perdue shoulda reat this first, the stupid moran.

Cause god has control of everything, and apparently decided to NOT have it rain, a whole bunch of people asking him to please change his mind is gonna work.

Maybe god WANTS the state to turn into a desert.. then what?
