In one corner is an Indonesian witchdoctor smeared in blood and with the devil on his side. In the other corner, George W. Bush, weakened by an electoral drubbing, but with the 82nd Airborne on his side.

The battle kicked off yesterday, when the witchdoctor drank freshly slaughtered animal and snake blood, as part of a ritual he said would jinx the upcoming visit of the U.S. President.

Ki Gendeng Pamungkas slit the throat of a goat, a small snake and stabbed a black crow in the chest. He then mixed their blood with herbs, before drinking the potion and smearing it on his face.

So far, so Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

'I don't hate Americans, but I don't like Bush,' said Pamungkas, adding he believed the ritual would succeed because 'the devil is with me today.'

Ironically, 'the devil' is a phrase that many opponents of Bush - notably Hugo Chavez - have used to describe the President.

Pamungkas said that the ritual - which he performed about one kilometer from the palace where Bush will have talks with the Indonesian president - would cause Secret Service personnel guarding Bush to fall into a trance and believe the U.S. leader was under attack, causing chaos.

The president is scheduled to visit the world's most populous Muslim nation for several hours on Nov. 20. Bush, you'll be surprised to learn, is deeply unpopular in Indonesia because of the U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

While sorcery - which predates Islam's arrival on the islands - is banned under Islam, many Indonesians still follow and practise it.

I had an appointment at the clinic on Tuesday. The receptionist asked me, "Which doctor?". I said, "No, I want one who has been to medical school."

She retaliated by making me wait an extra half hour.

I think Bush is far better at convincing people of his mumbo jumbo than a witch doctor.
