What An Asshole

Only word for it. I knew it wouldn’t take long for the left to blame the storm on the Republicans. What’s amazing is how little time it took. I left the following comment.

What a despicable piece of opportunistic tripe. For someone who has experienced tragedy in their own life to take such advantage of the unholy suffering of hundreds of thousands of fellow Americans only to make a cheap (and hotly disputed) point defies all boundaries of taste, compassion and humanity. All your vast and mighty resources might be better spent assisting in places the average American, one of not so lofty privilege and place, would give their eyetooth at this moment to be able to help. My neighbor is on his way from our own Ivan ravaged hometown to help restore Biloxi’s airport. You, sir, are doing what precisely? One shouldn’t quote Pat Robertson’s hateful words when one’s own come so close to channeling them. You disgrace yourself. For shame.

    Bobby Junior has said an awful lot of things recently that put him outside the pale of his father’s and (oldest) uncle’s politics: they were patriots. Come to think of it, Teddy’s made the same journey.
    I despise that family, but thinking that the laws of physics don’t apply to them, just as the laws of men don’t, is going to kill off the entire current generation.

  3. I am convinced they have all lost their minds. When confronted with something so horrific, all they can think to do is spin it to their advantage. The lies and self delusion are frightening.

    Well, the science is clear. This month, a study published in the journal Nature by a renowned MIT climatologist linked the increasing prevalence of destructive hurricanes to human-induced global warming.
    Explain to me, please, where it is stated that Bush caused Katrina? No one thinks that Bush is to blame for Global warming…..its not something that has surfaced in the past 6 years. Everyone would just like him to wake up and realize that its a big deal, not something to ignore.
    I strongly dislike when people draw conclusions from out in space, like the “right” does all the time. Prime example right here (and elsewhere in the “right” world)

    Who says he is ignoring it? What about the The Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate?
    Further, not supporting the Kyoto is taking climate change seriously, mainly because the Kyoto Protocols are a joke. As most of the world is finally acknowledging.
