Scenes from Rick Perry's Prayer Party

For pocketbook reasons, we didn't get to travel to Houston this weekend for Rick Perry's The Response: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis, starring JobJesus and other celebrities of American evangelicopolitics. Luckily some photographers were on the scene to show us what we missed.

Judging from pictures, it looks like Perry really knows how to organize a successful, totally apolitical prayer event (not to discount the involvement of the American Family Association, of course!). Many people were so moved that they cried. Getting people to cry is a very useful skill for an American president to have.

If Perry can fill up a stadium named after a power company with fellowship and spirituality and tears, just think of what he can do for the whole country. Like, if he could get the whole country together to cry for a few days, then maybe there would be enough water to help mitigate Texas' awful drought. Because all those prayers to God for rain don't seem to be doing jack shit about that problem.
