Not that that matters to Rick Perry, the Governor of Texas.
I have sort of the impression that Perry's mental representation of governing a state looks like this:
1. Pray really hard
It's also the height of disingenuous to claim that it's an "apolitical Christian prayer meeting," when, as I said, Perry specifically invited all 49 other governors, "as well as many other national and Christian political leaders." Does that sound apolitical to anyone else? Bueller? Bueller? Protip: If you want to call your event apolitical, maybe you shouldn't feature dozens of political leaders as specially-invited guests. That tends to blur the line a bit.
But you know what really gets me?
That fucker put his rally on my birthday. >:-(
Rick Perry can go un-fuck himself. Anyone know if there are term limits in Texas?
At least we know he's gotten three no's from his fellow governors so far. Here's hoping the event falls flat on its church-state-conflating face.
