Ernesto, Schmesto

Wake Island is going to get pounded by Holy Schmokey Ioke:

Classified as a Category 5 “super typhoon,” Ioke is expected to extensively damage the U.S. territory when it hits Wednesday with 155-mph winds, said Jeff Powell, lead forecaster for the National Weather Service in Honolulu.
“This is going to roll up a storm surge that will probably submerge the island and destroy everything that’s not made of concrete,” Powell said.

    A storm surge may submerge the entire island? Yikes! Good thing they’re flying everyone out.
    I’m glad Ernesto is a glorified thunderstorm. I hope they don’t cancel school.

    Hey, a super typhoon!!! Where are the barking moonbats, er, ah, concerned environmentalists? Isn’t Dubya to blame for this, or something? Or do disasters count only when they hit centers of major populations?

    Wow. No combination of the words “submerge” and “island” sounds any good at all. God bless them.

    Best I could find is that the highest point on the Island is 20′.

    Darn. They cancelled school.
