The Eye has it

Gordon King reports in my comments to this post that the local bishop where he lives in New Zealand is in come confusion:

Our local Bishop Penny Jamieson wrote a commentary piece the other day where she said that she wasn't sure who would be Sauron, Bush or Saddam.
I think I can clear up her confusion:


Hope this helps.

Viggo, meet Penny, Penny, meet Viggo.

Except that Viggo, if I remember correctly, said we're Saruman, which I can't make any sense of at all, unless Sauron is The Jews/The Zionist Conspiracy/The Jewish-Controlled Media/Israel or some such formulation. Haven't come up with any other explanation.

Andrea, I think I posted something like this before about this monument to Saddam reminding me of the eye of Sauron, but I cannot find it now. Of course, I didn't have the wonderful graphic.

Absolutely smashing graphic. Sounds to me like the good Bish slept through the classes on moral reasoning in divinity school. Or do they not have those any more?

That Paint Shop Pro is a wicked program. ;) (I downloaded that because I can't find the registration number for my copy of Photoshop. It's in a pile of junk somewhere...)

Maybe Viggo isn't clear on which character in the movie is Saruman. It's not like he played Saruman or anything.
