A bumper sticker from northern VA

My wife just saw this - I-66 in northern Virginia:

"George W. Bush has more people praying now than ever before"

2. I'm not sure how to interpret this
are they slamming him for sending troops to war and people having to pray for them? or are they saying he is a good influence on "lost" christians?

4. I am sure it is satire

As in "I pray that this son of a bitch leaves office in November"

3. Deliver us, Lord, from the scourge that is W...
...grant us peace.

I'm being generous.

6. That's where typeface makes all the difference
It might give a hint whether sarcasm was intended.

But the more you think about it, it has to mean that he's gotten us in such a dangerous situation that we have to pray for salvation.

8. Paging Betty Bowers...
I love that one. That's one I could put on my car in my Repug area.

I have my DU bumpersticker sitting right behind my desk in my office. People can't help but notice it when they come in and usually if they're there it's for a favor or to make money...so even if they want to take issue, the pocketbook usually says no. Last week, I did have one guy ask about it...a "Mancow Repugnican"...30'ish, macho, racist, sexist...in essence a total screw-up. A year ago he was 1000% manchild...Bunnypants could do no wrong. The other day he avoided talking about the regime, and was curious about the site. I told him...check it out and you tell me what you think. Plant the seed...not sure if there's any soil to take root in, but we can have hope.

This is the person who two months ago, when we last got into it about the invasion (he hates that term), and the death toll had just hit 500, I bet him (and I still cringe at the concept) that there would be more than 1,000 dead by election day. He said no way. I haven't asked him how our bet has been going lately.
