he also demanded that unicorns and the tooth fairy also stay out of our airspace.
2003-02-28 09:56:28 AM  
God's wrath.

I wonder if Mr. Rodgers suggested this?
2003-02-28 09:58:09 AM  
let the Bush wrath begin...
*grabs popcorn*

Quipped THE LORD
"Medamnit! Missed the little prick again!"
2003-02-28 09:59:26 AM  
HeHe...His name is Jeb.

That name is sooooo 500 A.D.
2003-02-28 09:59:28 AM  
This happens all the time. I guess this is news only because it was Dubya's plane.
2003-02-28 10:00:06 AM  
...err, Jeb's
2003-02-28 10:01:00 AM  
What the hell was he doing on a King Air? I thought the Bush family was filthy rich. What, can't afford a Gulfstream? Citation Bravo?

Damn you,TypoFlyspray. ;)

"Missed it by THAT much!
2003-02-28 10:01:38 AM  
Was there also anything else he also did, Animefx? :)
2003-02-28 10:04:09 AM  
he also told me to use also in a setentence too many times... also.

2003-02-28 10:04:45 AM  
Assuming God is omnipotent, then God must have just given Jeb a sign. I hope that is the case because if turns out that God missed because God is incompetent....
2003-02-28 10:04:46 AM  
Heaven hath no fury like a deity scorned...
2003-02-28 10:05:07 AM  
great headline.
2003-02-28 10:05:55 AM  
Alia, on the other hand, was frightened, paralyzed

Naw, she wasn't.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
2003-02-28 10:07:50 AM  
That's God's way of saying, "Don't fark with the results of the next election, Jeb."

He moves slowly, but decisively.
2003-02-28 10:08:39 AM  
Maybe God's got Old timers disease and he needs cloned stem cells.
2003-02-28 10:08:41 AM  
Why did this get the SCARY tag? Is it cause he didn't crash? Yeah that is scary.
2003-02-28 10:08:43 AM  
Machu, that quote was from Frank Herbert's Dune right?
2003-02-28 10:08:49 AM  
Common, but scary nonetheless. I'm glad everybody was okay.

My car was hit by lightning once. Shortly after the hit, a big green glowing orb bounced along the telephone lines next to the highway. Then it disappeared. True story!
2003-02-28 10:10:14 AM  
Frazetta, what dod you do to piss off God?
2003-02-28 10:13:46 AM  
Then how's George going to win the next election if Jeb bite the big one. jk
2003-02-28 10:15:10 AM  
I'm going to have to talk to God about his aim, get him in some range practice or'd think an omnipotent diety could hit a target. Maybe God is a stormtrooper......
2003-02-28 10:16:04 AM  
For the last time

Lightning is Zeus's thing!!!

God does earthquakes and floods.
2003-02-28 10:16:47 AM  
LOVE the headline! Thanks to whoever wrote it.
2003-02-28 10:18:21 AM  
(A mere Kingair becasue it's the taxpayer's plane.)

So this God guy, he takes a swipe at the prez' brother.

Looking back it seems this God guy has used weapons of mass destruction (the plague) upon the people.

He has been known to smite others for merely looking in a certain direction.

He drove the innocents from their homeland (Eden) for disagreeing with him.

If I were any kind of biblical scholar I could no doubt make up a really cool web page.

Let's just hope Dubya doen't get any ideas here...

No, that's Poseidon's thing.

Great headline. I think that's a warning sign.
2003-02-28 10:19:19 AM  
""No, I wasn't scared. Alia, on the other hand, was frightened, paralyzed."

I don't blame her. If I was killed in a plane after overloading it with baggage on my return flight from shooting my latest video, I'd be afraid to fly again, too...
2003-02-28 10:20:07 AM  
Eh, lightning does very little to a plane if it is struck.
2003-02-28 10:21:42 AM  
He needs to get a real plane.
2003-02-28 10:22:26 AM  
Bah, to Heck with you html
Real Plane
2003-02-28 10:22:37 AM  
Helluva warning.

For, um, something...
2003-02-28 10:24:08 AM  
"Lightning is Zeus's thing!!!"

I thought is was a Thor Thing.
2003-02-28 10:26:02 AM  
What the heck? Lightning hits planes all the time! Liberal media is dumb! Do they actually think that they are going to convince the public that God is placing his wrath on the Bush family...tell me that is not what they think they are going to accomplish by spreading this poor excuse for real news!
2003-02-28 10:26:18 AM  
Great Dune reference Machu. :)
2003-02-28 10:27:20 AM  
Nah, Thor throws the hammer around. Wouldn't it be cool if a hammer hit the plane?
2003-02-28 10:27:20 AM  

That must be significant.

And didn't Nostradamus predict this?
2003-02-28 10:31:23 AM  
Just for those keeping score....

Pat Robertson gets Ass Cancer.

Jerry Falwell gets Gay Neighbors

Shrub chokes on a pretzel.

Jeb's plane gets zapped.

Kind of makes you wonder which "god" they are praying to and talking about so much.... The one with the thermostat set on broil perhaps?
2003-02-28 10:31:41 AM  
Almighty Zeus:"...and THAT'S for helping put that asshat brother of yours in office...Biatch"
2003-02-28 10:31:49 AM  
Great headline.
2003-02-28 10:31:55 AM  
2003-02-28 10:32:50 AM  
For those of you who have kept track, you will not i have never said I like anything, but i do like the fact that Pat Robertson got ass cancer... I hate Pat Robertson.
2003-02-28 10:33:13 AM  
I hope Falwell's gay neighbors dress as Teletubbie and trick-or-treat at his house on Halloween!
2003-02-28 10:33:36 AM  
Poor Noelle must have dropped her syringe.
2003-02-28 10:36:59 AM  
"I thought is was a Thor Thing".

This is your brain, this is your brain on Rush. Any questions?

Fred Rogers = 1
Jeb Bush = 0
2003-02-28 10:41:30 AM  
Why does God hate America so much?

Oh, my mistake. That line is only used when someone disses his brother and should be "why do YOU hate America so much". Damn, I'm confused.
