I\u2019m excited. Really excited. I thought I\u2019d be wasting a lot of time figuring out who to vote for in 2012, but now I apparently don\u2019t need to wrack my brain too much. God has made His choice, and I certainly don\u2019t want to mess with God. Once again, God is going Republican. (NB: For the rest of this column, I\u2019ll stick to the masculine tag for God. It\u2019s simply common usage. It doesn\u2019t imply anything.) So ... God has cast His vote early. He\u2019s chosen, (or \u201ccalled\u201d and we say in evangelical-speak), Michelle Bachmann. That\u2019s a bit of a concern for me considering I wrote a column a while back that pretty much called into question Rep. Bachmann\u2019s sanity. But I\u2019m not going to question God. Bachmann says she got \u201cThe Call\u201d, and that\u2019s that. Last year, well before she ever announced her candidacy, Bachmann told World Net Daily, (a religious news organization) that she would only consider a presidential bid and campaign if God told her to do so. \u201cI will not seek a higher office if God is not calling me to do it,\u201d she said. \u201cIf I am called to serve in that realm I would serve, but if I am not called, I wouldn\u2019t do it.\u201d Later, not too long ago this year, Bachmann repeated her willingness to answer \u201cThe Call\u201d in an interview on CBS. She told Bob Shieffer, she had received a \u201c... sense of assurance\u201d from God regarding her candidacy. That\u2019s good enough for me. I probably wouldn\u2019t usually vote for someone like Bachmann. She scares the poop out of me. But \u2026 she has gotten \u201cThe Call.\u201d It\u2019s not the first time God has had a direct chat with Bachmann. Back in 2006, Bachmann said God had called her to the political limelight. \u201cGod then called me to run for the United States Congress.\u201d she said. Later she added that she and her hubby \u201c\u2026 took three days, and we fasted and we prayed. And we said \u201cLord, is this what you want, are You sure? Is this Your will?\u201d And after, along about the afternoon of day two, He made that calling sure.\u201d Wow! I\u2019m impressed. If I took three days off work, I\u2019d probably be painting the house. She\u2019s chit-chatting with God. Bachmann is serious stuff. So, if God is backing her, I\u2019m on her side. Then ... Rick Perry, governor of Texas, says HE got God\u2019s OK to run. What the heck??!!?? He hasn\u2019t actually announced his run just yet, but Perry is heavy on the hinting. \u201cI\u2019m not ready to tell you that I\u2019m ready to announce that I\u2019m in,\u201d Perry said in a recent interview with the Des Moines Register. \u201cBut I\u2019m getting more and more comfortable every day that this is what I\u2019ve been called to do. This is what America needs.\u201d He\u2019s \u201cbeen called\u201d too? Does God understand the basics of Civics 101. There can only be one president in these United States. You gotta pick one. So ... now I have to figure out who God is supporting \u2014 Perry or Bachmann? Wait a second. Herman Cain says he\u2019s \u201ccalled\u201d too! That is to say, Rev. Herman Cain. He is ordained doncha know \u2014 an associate minister at Antioch Baptist Church North in Atlanta, Georgia. I wonder if that gives him an \u201cin\u201d with The Boss? So now Bachmann, Perry, and Cain have all received \u201cThe Call.\u201d I suppose I\u2019d better check, there may be others. This is ever so confusing. I thought Bachmann was a shoe-in when I read she had the Heavenly Father\u2019s imprimatur. She had the divine Seal of Approval, and then these other guys show up and get in line. I suppose I should have known. The GOP has a long-standing arrangement with God. They have him on their side \u2014 Lord of Lords, Prince of Peace, GOP Lobbyist for the Many Mansions District. God has very publicly directed the game plans of Sarah Palin, Arizona senate candidate Sharron Angle, George Bush, Norm Colman, and others During her run against Sen. Harry Reed, Angle told reporters: \u201c I believe that God has been in this from the beginning and because of that, when he has a plan and purpose for your life and you fit into that what he calls you to, he\u2019s always equipped people.\u201d Palin very openly told reporters she firmly believed that John McCain had chosen her as his running mate because of \u201cGod\u2019s plan.\u201d When he ran for the U.S. Senate, incumbent Norm Colman told a radio talk show program \u201c\u2018God wants me to serve.\u2019\u201d Now it gets confusing. Despite \u201cThe Call\u201d, Angle, Palin, and Colman all lost, (In fact, Colman lost to a Jewish comedian \u2014 Al Franken.) My head is starting to spin. I thought God, being Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent, would be a little more decisive. Let one of these folks know \u2014 FOR SURE. I mean seriously, if I do vote for Bachmann, and God actually has \u201cCalled\u201d Perry, am I sinning? If Bachmann has received \u201cThe Call\u201d from God, but I vote for Herman Cain, am I risking Divine wrath? As I said, I don\u2019t want to mess with God, but the GOP is making things really difficult for me.
