Hullaballoo this morning skewers the faith-based madness afflicting the fundies of both the East and the West...
Charles Krauthammer Gets It Exactly right
Then there is the larger danger of permitting nuclear weapons to be acquired by religious fanatics seized with an eschatological belief in the imminent apocalypse and in their own divine duty to hasten the End of Days.If ever there was an argument for voting against Republicans and other rightwing lunatics, this is it. We should all take this to heart.Oh...But wait a minute...Did I possibly misread this? Hmmm...Maybe he's not talking about Bush. Could he mean Iran? Here's the next sentence:
The mullahs are infinitely more likely to use these weapons than anyone in the history of the nuclear age.Oh, now I get it. He's using "the mullahs" metaphorically, meaning the "top banannas" in the government, meaning "the White House." Seriously, who else could Krauthammer be referring to? After all, since the US is the only country actually to use nuclear weapons, it's surely "infinitely more likely" to use them again than a country that doesn't have them and which experts believe is 10 years away from getting them.ht, The Anonymous Liberal
