Poetic Justice

Some of you may remember a post from last week in which I dissected the brilliant move of James Dobson's Focus on the Family group to request that their followers pray for a torrential downpour during Barack Obama's presidential nomination acceptance speech at Invesco Field on Thursday. Well, it seems that someone was indeed listening:

DENVER - A sprinkler system partially flooded part of the Pepsi Center Monday morning.

The Denver Fire Department, which has a crew stationed at the center all week, was able to respond quickly before 5 a.m. when the sprinkler went off.

The sprinkler was located on the club level in a skybox which had recently been renovated to host a news crew. It appears the skybox belongs to Fox.

After going off, the sprinkler released 50 to 100 gallons of water per minute and 9NEWS crews estimate it was on for around 5 minutes.

The cause of the sprinkler is under investigation but early reports indicate it was likely bumped or the heat sensor may have been affected by equipment in the room.

So the theocons prayed for it to rain on Obama and FOX News got drenched. Now I don't care if this was divine intervention or universal karma or Scott Baio's character from Zapped!, all I know is that it's damn funny.
