While on the campaign trail in North Carolina, Mitt Romney stopped to kiss the ring of nearly-dead bigot Billy Graham. And he knew all the right words to say. When Graham said he’d help him win the presidential election in any way he can, Romney went straight for the trite and obvious:
Photographers and a television crew were allowed in during the final minutes of the meeting, where Graham was overheard asking Romney, “What can I do for you?”
“Prayer is the most helpful thing you can do for me,” Romney replied.
According to Mark DeMoss, a senior Romney adviser who was at the meeting, Graham then led a prayer for Romney after the cameras left the room. Graham also told the former Massachusetts governor, “I’ll do all I can to help you. And you can quote me on that.”
Really, Mitt? What is prayer going to do for you? Be specific. Is it going to change someone’s vote from Obama to you? What about that free will thing Christians always use to get out of the problem of evil? I guess that only exists when it’s convenient.
