‘Third awakening’
Gott mit uns, or taking God’s name in vain. Mr Bush’s minders again milk American revivalism to push their imperialism. Not hard to do historically: that sense of being the chosen people in the promised land (actually the happy hunting-ground of sectarianism as Mgr Ronald Knox put it), of entitlement, fuelled manifest destiny and the treatment of the natives.
You realize that the only other self-righteous leader who seems to use similar terms (of good and evil) to justify his actions is Osama bin Laden?
Yes, how’s the ‘dead or alive’ manhunt for him going?

From The Gaelic Starover.
