I rarely comment on current affairs, because it’s just so depressing. But this was too grimly amusing to pass up:
[B]y all reports, President Bush is more utterly convinced than ever of his righteousness. Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated "I am the president!" He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of "our country’s destiny."
Let us hope a dialogue like this doesn’t take place in the White House soon:
President Bush: "Do you realize that in addition to fluoridating water, why, there are studies underway to fluoridate salt, flour, fruit juices, soup, sugar, milk, ice cream? Ice cream, Condi? Children’s ice cream!…You know when fluoridation began?…1946. 1946, Condi. How does that coincide with your post-war Islamofascist conspiracy, huh? It’s incredibly obvious, isn’t it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual, and certainly without any choice.
That’s the way your hard-core Jihadi works. I first became aware of it, Condi, during the physical act of love…Yes, a profound sense of fatigue, a feeling of emptiness followed. Luckily I was able to interpret these feelings correctly. Loss of essence. I can assure you it has not recurred, Condi. Women…women sense my power, and they seek the life essence. I do not avoid women, Condi…but I do deny them my essence."
