I'd like to say something about Bush's much-vaunted "moral clarity."

It's true. He really does have moral clarity. He's clear on morals because he only admits to a few:

(1) It's moral if you can get away with it.
(2) It's moral if someone you like does it.
(3) It's moral if no-one can do anything about it.
(4) It's moral if it makes money for the right people (i.e., straight, white rich people that agree with you, who obviously deserve it because God has already sealed their virtue by blessing them with wealth.) (Too bad those liberal Hollywood and techno freaks with megabucks get to ride along. Maybe we can figure some way out of that.)
(5) It's moral if you can get a lawyer to justify it.
(6) It's moral if your Bible-study pals don't call you to protest.
(7) It's moral if you're George W. Bush; then it's obviously ordained by God.

UPDATE: Whoa. Mahablog has posted on the same subject, and you should read the whole thing. She even agrees with me about Andrea Yates.

The Sage always says, "Great minds think DIFFERENTLY."

Seriously, Barbara, I'm honored to be on the same page with you.
