Call From "God"

A documentary to be broadcast on the BBC this month quotes several Palestinian leaders as saying that, in private conversations, Bush claimed that "God" commanded him to undertake the various efforts of the "War on Terror." Both Nabil Shaath, the Palestinian Foreign Minister and Mahmoud Abbas, the Prime Minister, were present at the June 2003 occasions when his All-Mightiness, the Right Dishonorable Prezudint of the You-nited States made these grand proclamations. "God would tell me, 'George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan'. And I did, and then God would tell me, 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq...' And I did." Clearly, George and "God" have passed that awkward formal stage and are now addressing each other on a first-name basis. Bless. Or maybe "God" is just that microphone in his ear again. Maybe The Rage Rover can answer this one for him, too. It's a goddamn shame George Bush's "God" doesn't tell him to stop killing people. That would be nice.
