To all of you who kindly tolerate my ramblings – I’m sorry I’ve given so much of this space to matters of policy and the Middle East lately, but I’m so pissed about it that I have a hard time not writing on the subject. Indulge me for another, then I will reward you with other fun topics.
In discussing his war planning, this week Bush told David Brooks,
“… it’s more of a theological perspective. I do believe there is an Almighty, and I believe a gift of that Almighty is freedom. And I will tell you that is a principle that no one can convince me doesn’t exist.”
He’s talked like this a few times in the past. If you heard a guy on the street – or even in your office – talking like this, you’d give him a dollar and run, no? So why allow the slaughter of thousands of young men and women in the name of these delusions?
Now, sir – can the God of Abraham really always be trusted to give the best advice? Maybe you heard Him wrong? Maybe you forgot to take your medication? Maybe it was just the wind?
I wonder, Mr. President, if you’re aware that God told Atta, et al. to fly planes into buildings? How do you sort that out inside your little bean?
