What else can one say?
“I get on my knees every day and I’m saying an extra prayer now. If I had a rain prayer or a rain dance I could do, I would do it,” [U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom] Vilsack told reporters revealing that 78 per cent of US corn and soybean crops had been hit.
Honestly, the stupidity is breathtaking. Vilsack’s policy is to pray urgently, by any creative means imaginable, to a deity who (if he believes what he’s saying) Vilsack also thinks caused the drought in the first place, in order to get us out of the drought through a miraculous act of divine mercy.
And if by some chance the rains do start tomorrow, no doubt Vilsack and his cretinous gang will be the first to thank God for his mercy, too.
This sort of Stone Age ignorance is going to kill us one of these days.Tweet
