Thank goodness the GOP is rife with candidates claiming a direct line to the Almighty.

Herman Cain, whose campaign could use some redemption in the wake of a sexual harassment scandal, told a crowd of young Republicans on Saturday that God convinced him to run for president

I believe the conversation involved God asking, “You want a job, don’t you?

But this seems somewhat familiar

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., says that she prayed to God about whether or not to run for political office and that those prayers provided her with a “sense from God” of “assurance about the direction” she was taking.

Oh and this guy,

Perry told a group of businessmen and women, “At 27 years old, I knew that I had been called to the ministry. I’ve just always been really stunned by how big a pulpit I was gonna have. I still am. I truly believe with all my heart that God has put me in this place at this time to do his will.”

Obviously, Perry would tell you he’s endorsed by the Father, Son and uh…um…ah….

Or as God would tell you, “Oops”.
