Hi, George? It's Me Again...

Disturbing news item from the BBC.

"President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. 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. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it.'"

I'm working on getting a jamming device set up to interrupt the audio signal of Dubya's TV in time for this Sunday's NFL games, and I've already got my script written.

"Hi, George? It's me again...God. Yeah, I saw the Redskins game...Look, George, I appreciate everything you've done in My name in the past, but I've got a few more things for you to take care of. Got a pencil? Yeah, I'll wait...Ready? First, nix the Iraq thing. Pull out all the troops and let the Iraqis take responsibility for their own destiny. Then, stop propping up autocratic regimes in the Mideast--all that's accomplishing is fueling anti-American hatred amongst the fundamentalists and even some moderates, and propogates terrorism. Oh, and stop selling every policy initiative as being part of the 'War on Terror.' And then I've got some things for you back home. First, reverse the upper-class tax cuts and go after the offshore tax-dodger corporations to pay their fair share. Then, fully fund long-overdue infrastructure projects like highways, bridges and railroads, using only fair, competitive bidding procedures with federal contractors. Stop practicing blatant cronyism with your federal appointments and hire qualified people instead, and stop discriminating against people who are different from you--religiously, economically, sexually, whatever. Give universal health care coverage to every single American. Oh, and for crying out loud, stop bending over for the energy companies, Big Pharma and defense contractors. Got all that? Yes, I know it's a long list, and it cuts against pretty much everything you believe in, but I know I can count on you. Okay? I'll be in touch with you again next Sunday. Take care, buddy."

I thought Art Schultz was God?

At least locally...though he might have to share the throne with Dan Sharp.
