Charlie Christ: I Asked God To Protect FL From Hurricanes. Result? No Hurricanes

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is taking credit for his state's recent lack of hurricanes. Because he slipped God a note about it.
Crist noted that just before his election in 2006, Florida had been affected by a total of eight hurricanes in 2004 and 2005. "Do you know the last time it was we had a hurricane in Florida? It's been awhile. In 2007, I took my first trade mission. Do you know where I went?" said Crist, a Methodist, referring to a trip to Israel. He then told of going to the Western Wall and inserting a note with a prayer. He said it read, "Dear God, please protect our Florida from storms and other difficulties. Charlie." "Time goes on - May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December - no hurricanes," Crist said. "Thank God."
Crist's note also asked God for a beard. Result? Carole Rome.
