Remember when Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf coast three years ago? Remember when a certain 'religious leader' made insanely vicious comments that the city of New Orleans was hit so hard because of its 'sinful' ways? Remember the righteous indignation of most Americans over those remarks but the strongest protestations came from the farthest left of the Democrat party?
Well, this time around, there are Democrats that think Hurricane Gustav is absolutely hilarious. It's a real knee slapper. Why? Because the Republican National Convention is about to open and this is God's payback on the evil Bush administration.
A poster on the blog RedState wrote that he/she "was seated behind the former National Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Don Fowler and Congressman John Spratt of South Carolina. " After a few minutes of making fun of Sarah Palin, "Fowler calling her "Dan Quayle" on steroids and Spratt creatively describing her as "just terrible"." Both agreed she has nothing to offer.
I have a news flash for you gentlemen. Not that you are gentlemen. Sarah Palin will eat your lunch.
Then the moment of truth from Fowler: It's funny that New Orleans will have a hurricane. You know, because President Bush is slated to speak Monday night and it's just so funny.
Also, the genius that is Michael Moore said, "I was just thinking, this Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven. To have it planned at the same time - that it would actually be on its way to New Orleans for day one of the Republican Convention,up in the Twin Cities -- at the top of the Mississippi River." He enjoyed laughing as he spoke. That according to Business and Media.
According to Politico, President Bush is unlikely to attend the Convention. Governors Perry, Jindal, Barbour and Riley have all cancelled plans to attend and/or speak during the convention. John McCain, Cindy McCain and Sarah Palin travel to Jackson, Mississippi today at the invitation of Gov. Barbour to be briefed on hurricane preparations.
John McCain will speak to Fox News' Chris Wallace on the Sunday Morning Fox show and say that convention plans may be suspended as the storm hits. He may do his nomination acceptance speech via satellite.
Bush derangement syndrome lives on. Hilarious.
