In Love with Gustav
Posted by Ryan on August 31, 2008
Reason #314 why I will not be voting for a Democrat any time soon: former DNC Chairman, Don Fowler was giddy with the notion that the deadly Category 4 Hurricane Gustav (as of this writing anyway– it could go up to Cat 5 by landfall) is timed so well with the Republican National Convention that it just “demonstrates that God’s on [their] side.” Comic Book Guy himself, Michael Moore has echoed these statements too, saying that this is proof there is a God. But we except as much from him, plus Moore’s not a political leader.
Both links have videos which made me angry given that it is a certainty that lives will be lost, people are already displaced, and suffering will ensue despite whatever political ramifications the Dems think this will all have.
If you’re going to bring up God, here’s a letter which in my opinion has its heart in the right place. Yet, why do these Dems become so unabashed about invoking God when a deadly hurricane destined to take some lives and destroy homes coincides in what they think is great political theater? They must have quite a warped view of God (but that’s reason #26 why I won’t be voting for a Democrat any time soon). The balloons not dropping on cue when Kerry finished his 2004 acceptance speech was great political theater, but cheering a deadly monster storm is just sick. I’m waiting for the McCain campaign to tactfully pounce on this one.
