Ire of the Storm
Today's column for the Daily Banter expands a little on something I mentioned here a couple of days ago: the potential for Hurricane Isaac to strike Tampa next week during the Republican National Convention.
Here's a quick excerpt:
"When you consider the fact that the religious right which the modern Republican party has aligned itself and is beholden to completely regularly sees the hand of God in natural occurrences, it somehow seems appropriate that a very big storm could pound the Republican National Convention next week. I don't believe any of the nonsense the hyper-Christian contingent subscribes to, but the irony is inescapable -- and somewhat delicious. The modern incarnation of Republicanism embraces Christ and denies science and man-made climate change, which makes me wonder -- should Isaac become the kind of ferocious storm that used to be an aberration but which we've seen far too many of over the past several years -- exactly where they'll be willing to place blame if they get inundated to the point where their big party is interrupted by evacuation sirens and Emergency Broadcast System signals."
