Quote# 7695

[Apparently blaming Republicans for Hurricane Katrina]

Now we are all learning what it’s like to reap the whirlwind of fossil fuel dependence which [Mississippi Governor] Barbour and his cronies have encouraged. Our destructive addiction has given us a catastrophic war in the Middle East and--now--Katrina is giving our nation a glimpse of the climate chaos we are bequeathing our children.

In 1998, Republican icon Pat Robertson warned that hurricanes were likely to hit communities that offended God. Perhaps it was Barbour’s memo that caused Katrina, at the last moment, to spare New Orleans and save its worst flailings for the Mississippi coast.

And this is why, much as I consider the larger part of the Republican Party despicable, I can't bring myself to consider the Democrats a big improvement.

It's not so much that I voted -for- Bush, it's just that I wanted to vote -against- Kerry.

Read all the comments about the blog entry on that website - they're hilarious, and quite disturbing, in some cases.

Jesse, I was the opposite. I didn't think having Kerry in office would be likely to be any worse. Thought about voting Libertarian, but I felt it was more important to try to get Bush out.

Well ... either way we were gonna get ourselves stuck with a rich elitist douche ... so I thought I might as well vote for the rich elitist douche that actually seems to have some firm beliefs.

Oh, and, if this is what he meant by \"sparing\" New Orleans, I'd hate to see what would have happened if they'd really offended him there.

Predicting the future isn't hard when you wait until it happens to make your prediction.

This is quite reasonable actually; he is just making a point about climate change and the Bush administration's nonexistant policies on the matter.
