There’s a part of me that sees everything in a political context. Fortunately, I can often suppress that part when I think it’s inappropriate. With Hurricane Katrina, I caught myself idly speculating on what various factions would make of it.
Would the terrorists say that it was Allah’s wrath for our actions in Iraq and our support of Israel? Would noted asshole Fred Phelps say it was God punishing us for tolerating homosexuals? Or would Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell liken it to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, since New Orleans is such a sinful, decadent place?
Nah. One of the most powerful hurricanes in history is about to hit the absolutely most vulnerable part of the United States, and it’s all Bush’s fault.
(Thanks to Cardinals Nation for the tip. Sir, you have a far stronger stomach than I do to find that.)
