Thank God for...Bush?


Thanks to my bro-in-law Charlie for alerting me to this truly odd - though frighteningly common - belief that we should all bow down and thank the Almighty for the honor of having George W. Bush as our President.

What appears below is a letter-to-the-editor in today's Salt Lake Tribune. Insanity such as this is just a bit unsettling, to say the least.

Take a read and judge for yourself.



Thank God for Bush



Salt Lake Tribune

I've read many letters from Tribune readers that disrespect and dishonor President Bush. Do these people remember 9/11? If not, I suggest they find before and after pictures of the New York skyline. The Twin Towers were destroyed by fanatics who want every American dead.

While you read this, they are plotting ways to kill you, and if every American were to die, they would fire their guns in the air and dance in the streets while burning our flag. This is not the most pleasant thought; it is reality.


Right after 9/11, I saw our flag flying by the thousands. Where are they now? Mine flies proudly every day. I remember the thousands who died by a foreign hand.


How would you live if your whole country took on the look of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, your job gone, your food supply gone, no electricity or communications systems, heat or shelter?


This is their goal. While you sleep warm in your bed tonight, these factions will be thinking and planning ways to kill you, the same way they methodically carried out the attacks on New York City and the Pentagon.


My humble opinion is you should get down on your knees and thank God you have a president who is trying to save your life and your way of life.

Written in all likelihood by a Mormon wearing their staple underwear - holy britches with secret insignias over their nipples. Holy britches that may not be removed during sex (they simply open their fcuk flaps) and that protect them from all manner of evil. Guess that's why they feel so comfy with George.

Yes, I guess they feel that Dubya is covering their asses...literally.

Like anyone would want to bomb Utah, for crying out loud. That's why the Mormons settled there in the first place...no one else wanted to be there.

Why is it that the people most afraid of an attack are the ones who live where no self-respecting terrorist would give a flip about?

Just one of those things that make you go, "Hmmmmmm".

Sounds eerily familiar. We have letters to the editor almost exactly like that all the time. Might be a form letter, written by Bush himself. I'm sure the RNC sends out those things 'suggesting' the loyal Republican sign his/her name at the bottom and send it to the local paper.

Replace the words "New York City" and "the Pentagon" with places we've attacked and it can be used to describe us. In fact, replace the other specific names and it's a standard war cry that has been used through the ages.

Let me put it as simple as can be stated: no.

I don't exactly feel comfortable thanking God for being under the authority of a guy who breaks the law when he finds it convienient, tells fables to start wars, goes around calling reporters "assholes", can't run businesses, or cheats elections (allegedly). No, I think there are other, much more worthy things, that I could thank Him for. Like the one miner who's still alive. Or the Katrina survivors. Or the kids who've been fighting this war, and managed to get out of there alive. Even the ones who want to go back over there. Or my health. Yes for all those, thank you God.
