Minute Rant: Shannon Grove Showed Off Her Crazy

Shannon Grove is a California Assemblywoman, and a Republican, and a Bible-thumping loon who is so crazy that even the wacknuts she supports are trying to distance themselves from her.

She’s Pro-life, as is her choice, and she’s also certifiably insane, as maybe isn’t her choice, but the other day, while speaking to her anti-abortion base she said this:
"Texas was in a long period of drought until Governor Perry signed the fetal pain bill. It rained that night. Now God has His hold on California."
Yes, she is blaming the horrendous drought that California is suffering on abortion because, God, drought, fetus. Ad when her insanity went viral, as happens when elected officials reveal their crazy, she tried to fix it by saying:
"I believe - and most Americans believe - that God’s hand is in the affairs of man, and certainly was in the formation of this country. The Founders put God in the center of this nation by recognizing Him as a giver of our rights. Is this drought caused by God? Nobody knows. But biblical history shows a consequence to man’s actions; we do know for sure that California’s water shortage crisis has been compounded by liberal politicians’ poor decisions -  not properly managing our water resources and refusing to build water storage for decades."
So, wait … is it God … or the Democrats?

And the best part of Grove’s lunacy, other than the sheer joy of seeing a so-called educated person act the fool  is that the head of Pro-Life Kern County—much of which is in Grove’s district—said this:
"You can be proudly pro-life and not be a national joke. But comments like this make you a joke and undermine her position on abortion."
Look, let me make this queer: when your own wingnut supporters tell you that you’re gone too far, and that you’re a lunatic, maybe it’s time to check into a rubber room.

This would seem a particularly untimely moment to mention rain as a blessing to Texas, which is faced with disastrous and deadly flooding. Is she implying that God can turn on the faucet but tends to forget to turn it off?

Not sure what WA is guilty of (a lot I'm sure) but we
could use some rain.....

"I believe - and most Americans believe - that God’s hand is in the affairs of man" - WRONG, bitch!

1. She's lying. It did not rain that night.

2. What did Texas do to anger God that he would send the floods?

Words fail me! If only they would fail her too.
