I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?'
How does she know these events mean what she says they mean?
Might they not be signs that God is disappointed by our government's pivot to austerity -- which immediately preceded the quake and the storm -- and lack of focus on jobs, and also divine wrath over inadequate healthcare reform, not to mention a general callousness toward the poor, for whom He is said to have a certain fondness?
Come to think of it, maybe Bachmann's victory in Iowa sparked God's anger.
UPDATE: Bachmann says she was joking, which doesn't really change the theological questions.
