Gov. Rick Scott stayed at home during Texas Gov. Rick Perry's prayer rally on Friday, but he did make a video appearance before the 30,000-person crowd at Houston's Reliant Stadium.
Scott says in his video that since being inaugurated, his prayer has been the same as King Solomon's -- you know, the greedy guy who hoarded all the gold with his several hundred wives before getting in a bit of trouble for messin' with the Man upstairs.
Still, Scott joined Perry and Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback as the only ones out of the 607 people who were reportedly invited -- which included every state's governor, all members of Congress, and the Obama administration.
Jesusfest '11 still went down with the three amigos at the helm, and Scott's video message asked people to pray to God that people get jobs, among other things that are apparently out of his reach.
"We can all agree our nation faces tough challenges, and we need God's help," Scott says.
