political FWD from an anonymous someone

President George W. Bush was scheduled to visit an Episcopal Church
>outside Washington as part of his campaign to restore his poll
>standings.
>
>Bush's campaign manager made a visit to the Bishop, and said to him
>"We've been getting a lot of bad publicity because of the president's
>position on stem cell research, the Iraq war, Katrina, and the like.
>We'd gladly make a contribution to the church of $100,000 if during
>your sermon you'd say the President is a saint."
>
>The Bishop thought it over for a few moments and finally said, "The
>Church is in desperate need of funds and I will agree to do it."

>Bush showed up for the sermon and the Bishop began: "I'd like to speak
>to you all this morning about our President. George Bush is a liar, a
>cheat, and a low-intelligence weasel. He took the tragedy of September
>11 and used it to frighten and manipulate the American people. He lied
>about weapons of mass destruction and invaded Iraq for oil and money,
>causing the deaths of tens of thousands and making the United States
>the most hated country on earth.

>He appointed cronies to positions of power and influence, leading to
>widespread death and destruction during Hurricane Katrina. He awarded
>contracts and tax cuts to his rich friends so that we now have more
>poverty in this country, and a greater gap between rich and poor, than
>we've had since the Depression. He instituted illegal wiretaps when
>getting a warrant from a secret court would have been a mere
>administrative detail, had his henchmen lie to Congress about it, then
>claimed he is above the law.
>
>He has headed the most corrupt, bribe-inducing political party since
>Teapot Dome. The national surplus has turned into a staggering national
>debt of 7.6 Trillion, gas prices are up 85%, and vital research into
>global warming and stem cells is stopped cold because he's afraid to
>lose votes from some religious kooks.
>
>He is the worst example of a true Christian I've ever known. But
>compared to Dick Cheney and Karl Rove, George Bush is a saint!"
