According to the most recent polls, 43% of Americans *still* approve of the president’s handling of the war in Iraq. Which is pretty impressive, when you consider that’s more than actually voted for him in the first place.

But still, 43%? What the hell is the matter with these people? What in the hell is it going to take to shake them from their blind faith and retarded assertions that George W. Bush is blameless and holy?

The answer? Nothing. There’s a reason why conservatives and fundamentalist Christians are such compelling bedfellows. These guys wrote the goddamn book on blind faith. And when you spend day after day thanking an invisible man in the clouds for letting the Jews murder His son to keep you out of hell, then I guess you’re pretty well equipped to accept any stupid fucking thing at face value.

So George W. Bush can do no wrong. Only terrorists and slaves of the liberal media would imply otherwise. The Republicans can sleep well, secure in the knowledge that everything bad that’s ever happened in the world can be blamed on the Clinton administration and gay marriages. And any time the truth becomes so overwhelming that it threatens to seep through that impervious shell of blissful ignorance, they can always switch over to FOX News or tune into Rush and kill off that pesky part of the brain that insists on thinking.
