And the Lord God Said*

And the Senate Majority Leader
implored the Lord God to refrain
from sending the Lord God’s
wrath upon the US Senate be-
cause the senate Republicans
would not stand up to the corrupt
President of the United States.
“What if I can find thirty
Republicans with integrity?”
And the Lord God said to
the Senate Majority Leader,
“Show me thirty Republicans
of integrity in the senate and I
will refrain from raining down
my wrath upon the senate,”
and the leader couldn’t find
thirty. The leader said, “What
about twenty?” The Lord God
said, “Show me twenty Republic-
ans of integrity in the senate and
I will refrain from my judgment
upon the senate,” and the leader
couldn’t find twenty nor ten nor
five and then the Lord God, in
great graciousness and much
frustration, said, “Show me just
one senate Republican of integrity
and I will save the senate from
my wrath,” and the majority
leader, more like a hare than
a tortoise, hightailed it back
on a fast track to the Kentucky
bluegrass.

*with apologies to the account
of Abraham’s intercession on
behalf of Sodom (Genesis 18:
22-33).
