Bush the Bodhisattva

So do you think it's a coincidence that the pronunciation of Siddhārtha Gautama's "nickname" Buddha and the President of the United States George W. Bush's nickname Dubya rhyme in the English language (the true language of god)? Because if you do you don't understand religion!

Think of the enormously obvious parallels:

Both Buddha and Dubya were born into Royalty.

Buddha saw suffering of mankind during his trips, known as the Four Sights. Dubya saw the suffering of the Vietnamese people... from his couch.

Buddha has his 8 fold path, Dubya has his 12 step program.

Buddha attained Enlightenment and sought to teach others his insights to free them from suffering caused by life. Dubya's "Awakening" came one September Morning and his has since taught 1 million Iraqis Freedom from suffering life.

Contemporary scholars praised Buddha for his physical perfection. Likewise, Chris Matthews and others gushed over Dubya's assets in a flight suit.

Of course, Buddhism does have a major problem since it is directly responsible for NAZISM! And I have a very simple proof.
To wit, The Swastika is the symbol of the NAZIS! Buddhism uses a Swastika. If the the Buddhists hadn't used the Swastika The NAZIS! would never have existed. Ergo, the Buddhists are responsible for the NAZIS!

The true credit for this type of thinking belongs to Denyse O'Leary and other IDiot creationists who have for years tried to tie Darwin to Hitler and continue to do so as evidenced by this insane rambling by O'Leary.

Anyway to all the Buddhists out there I hope you realize the Bodhisattva Maitreya you are awaiting for to teach enlightenment to Mankind is already here and he reigns in a White House.

Update 02/29

Whoa. Check out this load of enlightenment Dubya drops during a conference. Ohm...

Hey, don't forget the classic "vegetarians are Nazis" as well:
A. Hitler was a vegetarian
B. Hitler was a Nazi
C. Joe is a vegetarian
D. Joe is Nazi


That people fall for this line of faulty logic to support their own beliefs doesn't surprise me though. Did you ever have a class teaching basic logic in school? I didn't. Ideally, this sort of stuff should be taught in fifth grade math. It'd be much more beneficial than long division.
