George W. Bush Is A Saint
Bush was scheduled to visit the Episcopal Church in NW Washington
as part of his campaign to restore his 28% approval rating in the polls.
Karl Rove made a visit to the Bishop and said, “We’ve been getting a
lot of bad publicity because of the President’s position on
stem cell research, the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina, and the
VA Hospitals, But we’ll make a $500,000 contribution to your
church if during your sermon you will say the the President is a Saint.
The Bishop thought it over for a few moments and finally said,
The Church could really use the money – I’ll do it.”
The following Sunday, President Bush showed up for the sermon,
and the Bishop began:
“I’d like to speak to all of you this morning about our
President, George W. Bush. He is a liar,
a cheat, and a low-intelligence weasel.
He took the tragedy of September 11th and used it to frighten and
manipulate the American People.
He lied about weapons of mass destruction and invaded Iraq for
oil and money, causing the deaths of hundreds of
thousands. and making the United States the most hated nation on earth.
“He appointed cronies to positions of power and influence,
leading to widespread death and destruction during Hurricane
Katrina. He awarded contracts and tax cuts to his rich friends so
that we now have more poverty in this country and a greater gap
between rich and poor than we’ve had since the Depression.
“He has headed the most corrupt, bribe-inducing political party
since Teapot Dome Scandal.
“The national surplus has turned into a staggering national debt
of 77.6 trillion Dollars, gas prices are up 185%,
which the people of America cannot afford, and vital research
into global warming and stem cells is stopped cold because he’s
afraid to lose votes from the religious right.
“He is the worst example of a true Christian I’ve ever known.
But compared to Dick Cheney, George W. Bush is a saint.”
