Here's more for my "reality once again outpacing satire" folder (h/t to David Gibson at dotcommonweal and The Lede). The president's recent decision to commit 100 U.S. military advisors to train Ugandan, Central African Republic and Congolese troops so they can, God willing, finally put an end to the reign of terror orchestrated over more than two decades by the psychotic Lord's Resistance Army has drawn critcism from the usual suspects. Now you can, I guess, make the case that this minor deployment is ill-advised or that there are better ways to track down the murderers, rapists and child molestors of the L.R.A., but rare is the man who could argue that it would be offensive to go after this "Christian" militia, since Lord=God and they purport to be resisting the Islamic hordes in Central Africa. Rare indeed. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Rush Limbaugh:
In a segment of his radio show headlined, “Obama Invades Uganda, Targets Christians," he, natch, rebukes Obama for this vast overextension of the U.S. military, and then goes a little further down the road toward self-parody, helpfully explaining that the “Lord” referred to in their name is not someone named Lord, but “God."
