I got really sick after the football game on Saturday. I went to bed rather early and was lying down this morning with my Sunday religious experience when I realized something. I jokingly refer to politics as my religion, but I think that the Bush administration actually believes that the American people should be its followers in a religious sense. For example, after the most recent attack on US forces, Bush does nothing but say, and I’m paraphrasing, that the American people must have faith that our resolve will not falter, blah, blah, blah, and that we will be victorious. Based on what? Come on, GW, throw us a bone. While we didn’t exactly vote you in office, you could at least pretend to do your job the way it was written and act like you’re leading as an elected official. It’s staggering how we can keep getting our asses kicked in Iraq and all he can say is “trust me”. Once evidence is provided to religion, it becomes history or science. Religion requires faith, the Bush administration doesn’t.
