Yeah, it’s shootin’ fish in a barrel, going over to the National Review Online for blog-fodder. A more wretched hive of scum and villainy organized in the defense of hate is hard to find. But this piece really cracked me up. According to some guy called Dennis Prager, the GOP are a bunch of pansies for cutting their convention short—not because Tropical Storm Isaac failed to tear Tampa to pieces, but because Real Americans aren’t ascared a no stinkin’ Hur’cane.
This is a nationwide trend. No more dodge ball lest a kid feel bad about being knocked out of the game. Why couldn’t the Republicans’ convention go on as scheduled, and only be cancelled if and when a real hurricane rendered it impossible? Has Katrina become to weather what Vietnam became to America fighting wars? Or are we just becoming a weaker society, wherein the Republican party, instead of fighting the nanny state, becomes one itself? Here in drizzly Tampa, as an American and as a Republican, I am embarrassed.
What an idiot. According to this guy, our biggest mistake with Katrina was not flooding the city with church-going, God-fearing Republican men to stand up to the storm, like Anderson Cooper, a stiff tree in the wind, bending, but not breaking. Or maybe something like that.
He’s embarrassed for Americans and the GOP? I’m embarrassed anyone can read this and not think is was written by a seventeen year-old booger-eater living in his mom’s basement.
