Dr. Bob Jones III

has written a letter of congratulations to George Bush (via Salon):

The media tells us that you have received the largest number of popular votes of any president in America's history. Congratulations!
In your re-election, God has graciously granted America—though she doesn't deserve it—a reprieve from the agenda of paganism. You have been given a mandate. We the people expect your voice to be like the clear and certain sound of a trumpet. Because you seek the Lord daily, we who know the Lord will follow that kind of voice eagerly.

Aren't you beginning to feel that there is a concerted effort to turn our attention to the wingnuts at this time? So that we won't talk about what else Bush is doing right now or what he may have done in the recent past? Or maybe I'm just really turning paranoid, but the Bob Jones people never really ruled this country before and I doubt that they do right now, either.

Still, he does point out that the country successfully averted the rising threat of Echidneites: the Skin Shedders who are rising everywhere with their chocolate ice-cream spoons raised high above their heads in salutation to all that is fair, just and good-tasting!
