According to Christine O'Donnell, God Himself wants her in the U.S. Senate so that millionaires can continue to get those juicy Bush Tax cuts. Or something. From The Hill:

Delaware GOP Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell said God wouldn't release her from campaigning for Senate.

O'Donnell suggested that even as things looked the toughest for her in her bid to win the GOP nomination for Senate, her faith motivated her to continue.

"God continued to strengthen and empower us," O'Donnell said in an interview on the Christian Broadcasting Network. "Because you see that if it weren't for faith, when all logic said it's time to quit, we pursued, we marched on, because we knew God was not releasing us to quit."

We've seen similar language used by these teabaggers that there is some sort of divine plan guiding them. Sharron Angle uses it, and said so on the same venue. And likely Sarah Palin will cite God when/if she decides to run for President.

Can you help us out?
