The Lord works in mysterious ways, including election fraud.

This shit never fails to make me physically ill.

But while Bush's public comments about faith have been mostly within the mainstream tradition of presidential rhetoric, his supporters lately have gone in a less-familiar direction: conveying the idea that God is responsible for Bush being in the White House.

There's no "lately" here; plenty of religious conservatives have been saying this from day one. I find the suggestion that a US president is selected by God to be unbelievably offensive. It's undemocratic and un-American, especially when the complications of the 2000 election are cited as evidence—spinning a very weak mandate as the strongest possible one. This kind of rhetoric is no different from the "divine right of kings" concept that we as a civilization gave up a while back.

Also, if God is happy with the outcome in 2000, why is he smiting Florida with all these hurricanes?

On a related note, Wonkette offers a pictorial comparison of the candidates.
