Sharon creates a party based on him, then quickly leaves power. A hotel in Mecca collapses. Iraq a mess. Abramoff/DeLay.
It's not that I find any of these events, by themselves, particularly worrying. It's not like, even collectively, there is much to worry about. It is what George Walker "Signs & Portents" Bush, the current President of a country called the United States of America, sees in it all. I've always argued that to Bush, 9/11 wasn't a tragedy, it was a sign. That the close elections were events, they were indications of how close Satan was on his trail. Out, out darn evil-doers!
