Bush the Believer

My favorite appellation for a ruler belongs to Ethelred the medieval English King who had the bad fortune to be known as Ethelred the Unready. No telling how history will treat our current president. “Bush the Incompetent” is apt but lacks the poetry that has followed Ethelred through the years. “Bush the Believer” may be a candidate.

Gary Wills in an article in the New York Review of Books details just how and how much religion has been used by Bush’s and his administration for their partisan political ends.

Read it and weep, laugh, and/or, perhaps, pray.
