Our accidental president, unfettered by office or responsibility, can now let his fundy freak flag fly:
According to a report from Sarah Posner in Mother Jones, George W. Bush is scheduled to give the keynote address at an upcoming fundraiser for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, an organization devoted to converting Jews to Christianity in order to bring about the second coming of Christ.
Speaking as an aging Bar-Mitzvah-boy-card-carrying-atheist-Jew, I am not going to indulge in profanity, hyperbolic insult, or the ridicule and public shaming that should attend any such gob-smackingly awesome arrogance and ignorance. I’ll simply invite the man who is currently to be found in position one, two, or three on the Worst President Ever tables to kindly self-copulate with an oxidized farm implement.
I’ll add just this. You can tell a great deal about someone from the company he keeps:
Bush will follow last year’s keynote speaker, Glenn Beck.
Well — one more thing. Glenn Beck? F**k him too. Or rather — when the need arises, may he be attended by urologists who failed mohel class.
And (“Our weapons are…Three!) really the last one. I can’t leave this story without noting that the grift is strong on this one. Hearing the man Charles Pierce has forever dubbed our C+ Augustus speak will set the rubes back from a C-note to $100,000. That’s a lot of simoleons, enough so that I am inevitably reminded of my co-religionist Jesus’s almost Elizabeth-Warren-like view of the banksters. But I suppose I just lack that necessary faith that would turn handing over that kind of cash to those kinds of people.
(PS — our weapons are 4! — how’s that “why don’t Jews vote Republican” inquiry going, guys?)
