Glenn Beck’s Fast for Ted Cruz Was a Complete Failure

It seems these days that even the Good Lord is sick of Ted Cruz.

After all, just the other week God was willing to kill Justice Scalia to further Ted’s political ambitions. These days? Not even Glenn Beck’s fasting could convince him to work on the hearts and minds of Nevada Republicans.

After Cruz’s defeat in South Carolina, Beck, who has endorsed and been campaigning for Cruz, declared he’d be fasting before the Nevada Caucus.

I would like to ask you to join me and my family Monday in a fast for Ted Cruz, our country and the Nevada caucus.

As it happened, this earnest plea was all for naught, since Nevadans preferred Donald Trump by 20-plus points to the competition. When it was all said and done, Cruz couldn’t even manage the distant second spot, coming in behind the newly reformatted Rubiot 2.0 at 21.4% of the vote.

No doubt this capriciousness is all part of God’s plan. But it must be a very mysterious plan indeed. After all, even if God was willing to risk a hangry Glenn Beck (and that’s a big risk, considering what Beck is like when he’s not hungry), surely after a day of food-deprived prayers He’d be willing to give Beck whatever he wanted, as long as the noise ended?
