When Barack Obama recently
visited Jerusalem, he placed a written prayer in the cracks of the
Western Wall, where it is said one has "God's ear," but the prayer was
taken by a reporter and then published in a Israeli newspaper, an act
that elicited much outrage.
What was it Obama wrote?
--*"Vote for me, God. Love Obama."
--*"Next stop, Tomb of Rachel."
--*"God, please take this publicity stunt as a tribute to you and your greatness."
--*"If you're reading this, you are a newspaper reporter who stole my prayer, and now God won't get it and the prayer won't come true, and now I won't be able to lead the American people with steadfast righteousness as I had implored God in my note, thanks a lot."
--*"A man can't even blow his shofar around here without there being a riot among peoples."
--*"Honk if you've got no country."
--*"Nobody in Israel supports me, God, so I realize that I'm pretty much just pissing in the wind here."
--*"I only hope that I am worthy to stand in front of this breathtaking symbol of history's ethnic and religious tolerance."
--*"God, I can't think of a more fitting silence from you in a more fitting place to show that you absolutely don't give a shit about mankind."
