Satan is in Rumsfeld’s ass

I was ranting about the Bush administration and religion only yesterday, and now this NBC piece of news about a certain general William Boykin, deputy undersecretary of defense, came out. Compared to this demented lunatic, colonel Jack Ripper out of Dr. Strangelove looks like a reasonable guy. Some of his better quotes:

“Why is this man [Bush] in the White House? The majority of Americans did not vote for him. Why is he there? And I tell you this morning that he’s in the White House because God put him there for a time such as this.”

“The enemy [of the US’s war against terror] is a spiritual enemy. He’s called the principality of darkness. The enemy is a guy called Satan.”

This would make great satirical stuff for a black comedy, if it wasn’t so REAL! This also makes me believe that the former times under Ronald Reagon in his Alzheimer-induced ‘Empire of Evil’ days were not too bad after all. And for the first time I felt a slight trace of compassion with Donald Rumsfeld, while he was speaking on the radio trying to defend his employee: “I simply can’t comment on what he said” because he did not know “the full context” of Boykin’s remarks.
