Get Ready for Sunday Morning

The NY Times Magazine article tomorrow about Bush is going to reveal the little crackhead's secret weapon - the absolutism of the evangelicals who really feel he's God's annointed crusader. Scary stuff. And the Sunday talk shows ought to be good watchin'.

It's a chilling account of the blind and irrational cult-like craziness that are the Bush believers.
"This is why George W. Bush is so clear-eyed about Al Qaeda and the Islamic fundamentalist enemy. He believes you have to kill them all. They can't be persuaded, that they're extremists, driven by a dark vision. He understands them, because he's just like them...

"This is why he dispenses with people who confront him with inconvenient facts," [Bruce] Bartlett went on to say. "He truly believes he's on a mission from God. Absolute faith like that overwhelms a need for analysis. The whole thing about faith is to believe things for which there is no empirical evidence." Bartlett paused, then said, "But you can't run the world on faith."
