Lou Engle, Republicans’ go-to Kansas City wingnut, joins the call for 40-day election fast

Lou Engle will be combing the crumbs from his beard during an alleged 40-day fast.

Tonight, Jews across the world will have their last taste of food and drink for a 24-hour period, during which they will atone for their sins against God and, as they get weary, daydream about making a break to the nearest Chinese restaurant. And recently, Muslims finished a full month of daylight fasting.

But now Kansas City preacher Lou Engle and his friends on the Religious Right are all, “That’s weak shit! Let’s fast for 40 days and see if the howling sounds of our empty stomachs magically overturn all the laws we don’t like! ”
