Bill Maher excels at giving a real-life view of the insanity that is the GOP field. One of his best is this one, where he just completely eviscerates Rick Perry.

BooMan's post on Thursday sums it up nicely:

One things troubles me, however. If God ordains the president, then we have no reason to worry. Why exercise our reasoning thingies and let our stress hormones fly when we are assured that whomever is elected president is God's choice?I don't have to knock doors or make phone calls or donate money. I don't even need to have a preference.

...Paul makes clear in v. 1, “[T]here is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” Every politician, whether he knows it or not, is using delegated power, delegated authority, authority delegated to him by God himself.

Nothing can go wrong.

Of course not.
