John Cleese: No it isn't.
MP: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
JC: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
MP: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
JC: Yes it is!
MP: No it isn't!
MP: Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of any statement the other person makes.
JC: No it isn't.
MP: It is!
To paraphrase Monty Python, voting is an intellectual process. If someone "automatically gainsays" me, that's not much of an argument, is it? (Yes it is.) No it isn't!
I also notice that the guy in the ad steals David Letterman's classic line from his Indianapolis weatherman days, "Hail the size of canned hams." So not only is the ad not funny, it's not all that original, either. I also have to wonder what God's reaction to such a prayer would be....
God: What is it, my child? For what do you pray today?
Guy: I pray for rain, my Lord.
God: I see. That is very noble and kind. Those who till the land need rain in order to grow their crops and feed their fellow man.
Guy: No, it's not for them.
God: Oh. Ah yes, I understand. You pray for rain in order to replenish the lakes and ponds so that the creatures of the forest might slake their thirst. That is very wise and thoughtful.
Guy: Uh...no, it's not for them.
God: No? Hmm. I know! You pray for rain to cleanse the air of pollutants, so that those who suffer from respiratory difficulties might experience relief. You are a loving man, my son.
Guy: Uhh...no. Not for them, either.
God: Let's see. You don't wish for rain for the crops; you don't wish for rain so that no creature will go thirsty; and you don't wish for rain to alleviate the suffering of your fellow man. I must admit, I'm stumped. For what reason do you pray for rain, my son?
Guy: Well, there's this guy, see? I don't like him. He's going to be speaking in front of a whole bunch of people in a couple of weeks, and I think it would be really cool if they'd get rained on! Don't throw down any lightning or hail or anything like that--I don't want anybody to get hurt!--but a good gully-washer would be great! They'll be all wet and miserable, and I'd get a real kick out of that!
God: You gotta be kidding me.
Somehow I suspect that God wouldn't take too kindly to such a prayer. I also doubt that He has an affiliation with any particular political party. Call me foolish, but I tend to save my prayers for little things like the health and safety of those I love and care about, or their family members. Sometimes I feel especially wild and crazy and pray for things like world peace and an end to suffering and poverty. But that's just me.
I guess there are people that know better than I do, and find it worthwhile to ask God to send down a heavy rain upon 75,000 people who are actively engaged in our political process and support the candidate of their choice. Hey, more power to you, but perhaps you might want to rethink your priorities and decide what really matters to you, to your community, to your country, and to your world. And instead of praying to God to fix things, you might consider exercising the free will you have been given and take some action yourself. Quite a concept, eh?
