What is the death toll now?

The death toll from Hurricane Bush has now exceeded one million.
Count the 600,000 Iraqis dead now who would not have been if not for Bush's invasion. Add the Afghans and the Africans. And the people of New Orleans who died because Bush did nothing, dead by his Sins of Omission.
Many people might quibble that the number is less than one million. But count the number of people surely fated to die -- sentenced to an early grave though we know not yet the dates, the places or their names. They will die of future wars that could have been avoided. They will die of hunger, of neglect, of easily treated ailments ignored. They will die because of squandered resources and destructive governance.
This president who speaks of Jesus has hands covered with blood and guts. The tortures
committed under his authority ought to be enough to sentence him to life in prison, yet the sheer number of deaths directly attributable to him are not yet a source of shame in America.
The bands still play, "Hail to the Chief" when Bush enters a room.
The reporters are respectful and tolerate his evasions and misleading statements -- apparently still proud of being given the opportunity to ask the great man a question.
The Christian religious leaders have not yet covered their heads with sackcloth and ashes, weeping in repentance for their part in bringing this creature to the highest position of power in the land -- their blood-drenched hands are outstretched every Sunday morning, holding their wretched and unholy collection plates.
Other politicians say "mistakes were made" and continue to cooperate with the war criminal heading their government!
