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."

Between this and Rick Perry's prayerapalooza from last year, asking God to give relief to his drought stricken Texas, only to see it ablaze with wildfires, it's no coincidence God does not approve of the GOP's mean spirited actions in His name.

Except that if the hurricane does hit the GOP convention, you know with this bunch of loons they'll just interpret it to mean, "Yes, God is punishing us--for not being even more conservative and hard-assed than even the party platform calls for! America needs more less! More less!"
