God, Bush, and The Guardian

I was going to write about The Guardian's juvenile and unprofessional report on claims that Bush has said that God instructed him to take out the Taliban and Saddam, but there is little that I could add to Scott Burgess' excellent comments over at Daily Ablutions.

It should be noted that the BBC, an upcoming broadcast on which is the basis for the story, is backing away somewhat from the claims, something even The Guardian has now noted, although it shows no sign itself of backing away from it. However, at least The Guardian has finally reported on the White House's denials, something it remarkably avoided doing in its original report.

It is also instructive, to get some idea of the kind of credulous readers The Guardian attracts, to have a look at the readers commments section.

Interesting news story in the Guardian, a story from 1951..... rather insightful words considering we are basically in the same position today.

Churchill would turn in his grave if he knew what was happening to this once great Britain....
