Perfect Together

It seems that Republican Rick ( also known as " he who shall not be googled") Santorum has much in common with Iran's lunatic Prez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.   Both men claim to be doing the will of the Almighty.  Both think 'God is on their side and the other side is possessed by " you know who".  It would be funny if it weren't so scary and if nuclear weapons were not on the table. Santorum and Ahmadinejad are just a couple of sock puppets, of course, with the real principal players off in the shadows posturing and making deals with each other.  The stakes are high and the testosterone flowing.

 But the big question is, in spite of the media hype all over the world, will angry rhetoric and economic sanctions stop Iran's nuclear ambitions?  Or will it be bomb bomb Iran? The real players behind the curtain are the ones who will make the real decisions and at the  moment, only God knows what will happen.

Personally, I would love to put these two in a room together and let them settle the whole thing via hand to hand combat, just like in the ancient world-- you know, the old " the winner is the one whom God REALLY loves"  Perhaps,  Dana Carvey as the SNL Church Lady could serve as referee.

It makes about as much sense as anything else in this crazy world we live in

Love that cartoon. and so true.. but then, come to think of it, why shouldn't it be? After all, they both represent the same mindset about a lot of things.

Don't they though:-) It is just uncanny, isn't it? Fundamentalism is the same no matter what the religion.
