I think this is an insight into the mindset of the conservative right. Elizabeth Dole, in her speech, said this:
The presidency tests all who have been there. It has tested you, sir. Your road has not been easy, your burden has not been light. Yet you have displayed the peace that surpasses all understanding. We salute you.Now, in ancient Hebrew, "Peace that Surpasses all Understanding" was the translation for one of the names of Yahweh. George Bush is to be thought of as some sort of divinely appointed supreme.
Anyone got a check or balance for that?
