The Annointment of Saint George
Last week, the Guardian and the Indy broke the story that Bush claimed that God told him to invade and “end tyranny in Iraq”. Whats really amusing is the reaction to this story by the two camps for and against the war.
The anti-war reaction was one of bored dismissal. Tell us something we don’t know about the Bush Theocracy. The Guardian will be breaking a story a about a Whitehouse aide claiming Bush is an elitist dullard with a speech impediment next.
The pro-war camp scurried around trying their best to disassociate their causes from the story. Here are two from the pro-war blogswamp:
Scott Burgess @ the Daily Ablution, which regards itself as the Media Watchdog for the jingoistic RightWing NewLeft, does a typically malevolent mouth-frothing dis-job on the editors who broke the news. Calm down dear, its only a “non-story”. Isn't it?
The drink-soaked cretins for war does a typically piss-poor attempt at explaining to us why their ‘Secular’ politics unconditionally supports a man who has conversations with God.
