the holy trinity of the apocalypse

Here’s a freaky/creepy coincidence:

On Monday night, I had the good fortune to see a short acoustic set by Elvis Costello. During the show, Elvis made a little joke about the inspired efforts of “the Father, the Son, and the Holy Rumsfeld.” The joke fell a bit flat, actually, and I had forgotten it until just now when I read this:

MIAMI (AFP) - The top US general defended the leadership of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, saying it is inspired by God.

"He leads in a way that the good Lord tells him is best for our country," said Marine General Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

What to say. . . .

I know that Don of the Dead requires hem-kissing obeisance from his generals, but it seems Pete has his lips permanently placed a couple of feet higher.

And how do Pace and Rumsfeld show their love of the Lord? Maybe by sending 2,700+ additional reinforcements up to God’s Army.
