Sarah Palin: Gulf disaster needs divine intervention as man’s efforts have been futile. Gulf lawmakers designate today Day of Prayer for solution/miracle.
Dear Father Who Art in Heaven:
Well, it seems that we totally fouled up your pretty planet. I know, I know, we screwed up, and we should be grown up enough to fix it, but you know how we kids are. We make messes and then never clean it up. We dig holes, we hurt helpless animals, we smear gunk all over the walls.
But you know what we’re most worried about? Not that delicate ecosystem you dreamed up. Not the lives of all those creatures you created. Nope. Frankly, we’re most concerned about our culture and making money. Now that is what a really good prayer is all about.
So… could you take care of that for us? Seriously, it’ll be the last time. Swear. And did we mention what a cool dad you are? Really, we tell all our friends, too. They wish their dad was as cool as you.
Thanks a lot. Mean it.
We gotta go to a yacht race.
