It has come to light that 4,000 lives and a trillion dollars were wasted by an idiot president who mounted a ridiculous crusade against the evil doers of Gog and Magog. There doesn't seem to be any reason to doubt the veracity of these reports.
While placing our nation under the guidance of a god who long ago stopped scooping her kids out of traffic, and one who has pretty much told the human race to go play nice while mama watches her stories, is a bad thing, it is a worse thing to be subjected to a president who feels compelled to send citizens to war to defend that god from imaginary cosmic enemies.
The monkey, George W. Bush, did exactly that.
Comedy Central and Andrew Sullivan are almost speechless.
My immediate reaction to this frightening news is to wonder why the French were not as susceptible to idiocy as was the American public, but that is not a fair question. The monkey did not fool us. I think even those who voted for him knew he was dull headed. If we are to assign guilt for the loss of 4,000 American lives and the waste of a trillion dollars, we should look to Cheney and his associates who manipulated the monkey and whispered dreadful things in his ears.
And so, before we can put this bad chapter behind us, we will be forced to look at its stains in the harsh light of continuous shameful revelations. This leaves us with one big question. When does it end, the carriage of this millstone of religion around the neck of American government? Won't the good and patriotic parent and spouses of those who have died in the Middle East not be the first to urge Obama to resist moralizing and instead to follow his instincts? When will we have a president who will abstain from seeing freedom in terms of sanctity? One who will not fear god? One who will not swear allegiance to god in order to cover his own faulty judgments and lack of vision? One who can be friends with god on Sunday rather than a slave to god during the work week?
