Receivable In Voices

Anyone who has read my work knows that I believe in God and that I think that a great deal of intellectual and moral information resides in religious texts; nor do I belittle the inspiration that can be derived from religious experiences.

On the other hand, Presidents who go around telling heads of state (or wannabe quasi-heads of faux states) that God is sending them messages (other than the sense that God inspires the operation of their intellect and discretion) how to govern get me nervous. Here, read this and tell me what you think.

Come to think of it, I need to find that link where a doctor posits his theory that Bush is slipping into a stroke-induced dementia... I know a cocaine addict that happened to, years after he quit. Doesn't bode well for el presidente.

Here's another.

Take 'em for what they're worth, and it probably ain't much. Still amusing/interesting/horribly morbid to consider, depending on your predelictions.

Bush has claimed this kind of thing far too often for you to chock it all up to the palestinians.
