4. Was he wearing his flight suit to the prayer service?
I've taken to wearing my flight suit to church, kind of an homage to Georgie's bravery after combat operations ceased in Iraq.

5. mixed
If it's on his own time and his own dime, I wouldn't generally care about his religious beliefs or how he chooses to practice them. In any event, I think the whole thing is a stunt to benefit his base.

Of course, the problem that's been occuring is the seepage between his private religious beliefs becoming public policy. I think that's why his little paper-mache prayerfest is a little dangerous - who knows what he'd do all whipped up with the Jeebus fever.

6. I think he is so stupid and uninformed that he is merely following
that which his handlers tell him to.

He is in over his head.

He is following the script given to him

He is merely the poster boy and got there because he is a Bush

He is so stupid that he cannot even question his own role. He believes he is actually making the important decisions. Yet, when qestioned, he cannot account for any of them. LOL

I think he actually believes he is running the country and the government.

Like a Caligula

and I think that soon he will begin referring to Laura as "Incitatus"


Caligula was emperor of Rome from 37-41 C.E., and in four short years established a reputation for strange behavior which has endured for 20 centuries. Son of the Roman general Germanicus, Caligula was raised among Roman troops and got the nickname Caligula ("Little Boots") from his miniature military garb. After the death of his great uncle Tiberius, Caligula became emperor with the army's support. His years as emperor were marked by erratic behavior and debauchery: Caligula ordered the deaths of enemies and friends alike, threw absurdly lavish parties, practiced incest with his sisters, and generally abused power while mishandling or ignoring affairs of state. He was assassinated in the year 41 by soldiers from his own Praetorian Guard. Caligula was succeeded by his uncle Claudius.
I expect that he will being calling Laura, "incitatus" soon.

According to the historian Suetonius, Caligula lavished his horse Incitatus with jewelry, built him a marble stall and planned to make him consul... Caligula apparently suffered from epilepsy as a boy; some scholars think his later behavior was the result of schizophrenia...
