The destructive tornado that destroyed the quiet town of Moore, Oklahoma on the afternoon of May 20 was only a few hours gone, the devastation had yet to be measured, and the dead barely counted much less mourned and laid to rest before Politico’s Glenn Thrush felt it was already time to politicize the event and by scolding Oklahoma’s Senators because they are against global warming and big government spending, no less
Only hours after the monster storm ended, Thrush took to his Twitter account to slam Oklahoma’s Senators.
It is striking that Oklahoma’s senators are 1) a federal spending skeptic and 2) global warming denier

So, because a tornado hit in an area that has a long history of getting hit by tornados, if that area’s senators were global warming believers…. then, what, Glenn? If Oklahoma’s senators were to be global warming aficionados, would that somehow have warded off a tornado?
Or, perhaps if said senators were believers in big government spending would that somehow have been a bulwark to stop natural disasters?
Or is it, Mr. Thrush, that you are always in a rush to find any reason to attack someone because they don’t believe in your love of big government and your zealous belief in global warming? Regardless of whether a town is destroyed and children are killed it all still serves as fodder for your desire to advance your political objectives?
Is that it, Mr. Thrush?
