Mediating Hairdryer

Since I posted a quote about God talking to people yesterday, I thought it interesting to run across a quote today about people talking to God. So call it point, counterpoint.

“The president of the United States [George W. Bush] has claimed, on more than one occasion, to be in dialogue with God. If he said that he was talking to God through his hairdryer, this would precipitate a national emergency. I fail to see how the addition of a hairdryer makes the claim more ridiculous or offensive.”
