[+/-] Bush denies God talks to him
Is that a good move, George? Seeing as how the fundies may still be the only ones in your camp, you might reconsider and go completely Holy Roller on this just to shore them up.
But it's rather pathetic that yesterday Scott McClellan had to come out and deny the former Palestinian foreign minister's claim that Bush said God told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq. Nonetheless, these claims will be aired in a BBC documentary next week.
And the cheeky folks over at AFP, in their report on this story, have helpfully added the following photo:
That's right--if God's talking, George ain't hearing so well.
But the fact this is airing in a BBC documentary and is taken seriously enough to cause an official denial reminds me of something else. Ron Suskind famously reported in the NY Times Magazine a year ago that a White House aide said in this administration, 'we create our own reality.' Well, it appears reality has a way of biting you back in the ass. Because whether the story is true or not, that's the 'reality' of George Bush in most people's mind, and that's one he himself created but can't control.
