Guess the Benighted Wasteland V

This is almost too ridiculous to believe. Today’s wasteland features a ruler so unequipped to deal with the problems facing his land that he is publicly calling on his countrymen to pray(!) for divine help.

From the website on which he is asking his coreligionists to pray for him:

we have been besieged by financial debt, terrorism, and a multitude of natural disasters…

Haha! Notice how he fails to mention “my own incompetence” or “my failure to plan effectively, hire the educated, or play well with others.”

And by the way, this is no feel-good multi-denominational prayer he’s asking for. Nope, if you don’t believe in the right god the right way, you can keep your prayers to yourself.

we must come together and call upon Jesus to guide us through unprecedented struggles, and thank Him for the blessings of freedom we so richly enjoy

May their prayers be answered with a competent, educated governor who deals with problems here on earth instead of imploring the gods.

Go here to laugh and jeer at his web site. http://theresponseusa.com/

Oh yeah, the benighted wasteland this time is Texas! Congrats to everyone who guessed Texas.
