Uh Oh

Son of a bitch is a goddamned kook. Washington Post (09.13.06):
"President Bush said yesterday that he senses a 'Third Awakening' of religious devotion in the United States that has coincided with the nation's struggle with international terrorists, a war that he depicted as 'a confrontation between good and evil.'

Bush told a group of conservative journalists that he notices more open expressions of faith among people he meets during his travels, and he suggested that might signal a broader revival similar to other religious movements in history."

Bush and his connection to the almighty. Reading about his "Third Awakening" made me think of "Gott Mit Uns"

"Gott Mit Uns (meaning God With Us) was a motto of the Prussian emperor; it was later used by German armies in World War I. During Hitler's reign, the traditional crest was replaced by the Nazi swastika and eagle, however the religious inscription remained unaltered. It is thought that part of the reason the Nazi government retained this motto was an attempt on the part of Hitler to retain the support of Christians, who comprised the overwhelming majority of German citizens."

Interesting. Carpetbagger has more about George's communion with a deity.

As for the Second Coming, if George has convinced himself he's been chosen to prepare the way for it, we're in for a whole lot of hurt.

Later in the article, an aide had to explain that he's not as crazy as he sounds. On the condition of anonymity.

He'd probably get the rack otherwise...
