Ophelia - Blame Bush
UPDATE: Hurricane Ophelia did little damage to New England (thus getting Bush out of the conundrum described below) and is currently dumping most of its rain on the Maritimes. This is seen as proof that George Bush is using evil supernatural forces to control the weather. As someone who lives in the Maritimes I would like to tell Beelzebub Bush to knock it off. Our weather is damp enough without your machinations.
I would like to suggest to the left-wing that they wait until the winds of hurricane Ophelia drop below hurricane levels before blaming Bush for his slow response. I mean this is a no loose situation for them if they don't jump the starter's pistol. If Bush is quick getting aid to North Carolina it will be seen as proof that he cares more about whites on beach fronts than blacks in New Orleans and if he is too slow it will be said that he has learned nothing from Hurricane Katrina about disaster relief. What does it say about him that he can be consistently outwitted by the media, given the state of today's media? It is like watching a cat with its head stuck in a paper bag trying to back out of it by walking backwards. Sad but funny. I would like to think that the media is not hoping for a huge death-toll to blame on Bush. Even if I am not delusional in that hope, I am certain that if so much as one person dies there will be a rush to think up ways of implying that his Iraq policy is to blame without actually saying it. Like by finding someone who will say it and interviewing them at length - that usually works.
Maybe the media is a Biblical style plague that is being set on Bush by God to punish him for cozying up to the hard-line God botherers and using the Lord's name in lame (that's like using His name in vain only in a more obvious and self-serving manner). Hey if anti-abortion people can believe that Katrina looked like a giant storm fetus I can have my theory.
Teach the controversy!
