Bad Bush Interview

     Carole Coleman, of Ireland's RTE News, had a one-on-one interview with President Bush.  Thanks to Today in Iraq for the link.  It is an 11 minute video, during which President Bush, yet again, repeats many of his silliest claims.  For instance, that seven prosthetic hands make up for any number of 10s of thousands of dead civilian Iraqis.  He repeatedly has to demand that he is allowed to finish the answers the attentive have heard a thousand times before.

     I'll just point out how he mangles the Bible, specificallyMatthew 7:3.  For those that don't know, Matthew is the first book of the New Testament, even though all evidence points to Mark appearing first, chronologically.  Bush says one of the great admonitions in the Bible is "[D]on't try to take a speck out of your eye if I've got a log in my own."  The link in this paragraph shows many different translations of Matthew 7:3, none of which say that.

     The Bible warns people not to even look at the mote in others eyes.  GW Bush thinks the proscription is against taking the mote out of the eye of the other.  He definitely thinks Saddam's mote was worth a grab, eh? 

     The conversation turns to Jesus at minute 5 of the interview.
