Bush-ward grenade was live

News & Politics

"I will have to make a Star Wars reference," writes KarlH, explaining why Bush's assassination from last week's grenade would've been awful for America: "As Obi Wan Kenobi once said: 'Strike me down and I will become more powerful than you could ever imagine.' I would hate to see Bush become some kind of martyr for American imperialism and evangelical [C]hristian politicalism...The right would consolidate their power, the Patriot Act would be reinforced... bring on the draft, invade Iran, etc...So maybe God was protecting GW from that grenade. Or maybe he was protecting us. Or maybe we just got lucky." (Virtual Pus via Shake's Sister)
