In days of yore

warlords used o look at oracles of victory or loss...
In the days of yore, warlords would look to sages and mystics to decide their fate in war. The shamans would look to signs from the heavens such as weather and star allignment to forecast the would-be conquer's chances of victory. It seems our little shrub has some real bad omens going. First, the shuttle explodes over his home state, now there's two feet of snow on the nation's capitol... hmmm, seems like something pretty damn powerful is not on the side of George W. and his warmongers. WE WIN..... HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. Who's got God on their side???
