Filing stupid lawsuits to stop tort reform… whaa?

Apparently a Nebraska senator has filed a lawsuit against God for natural disasters, “inter alia fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornados (sic), pestilential plagues…”

Other than his fantastic use of alliteration, I thought “What a nutball, how did this guy ever get elected?”

According to the article linked above, the lawsuit was filed “to fight possible laws restricting the filing of frivolous lawsuits.” So let me get this straight – to prove that the courthouse doors should stay open, his plan is to do something idiotic that helps the tort reform point.

Which makes me think  What a nutball, how did this guy ever get elected?”

I guess the only question now is who God hires for his defense counsel. I think that’d look amazing in a Martindale.com profile: Representative clients – Wells Fargo, State Farm, God…
