The Mardi Gras Blame Game

...or how I learned to stop arguing logic and tell that hurricane that it must follow proper federal policy procedures
President Bush spent the one year anniversary of Katrina apologizing for a hurricane. Previously, hurricanes were usually reserved as "act of God" type occurrences. Recently--say about January of 2001--such disasters have been downgraded into the more mortal realm of policy decision making. Apparently, the President is now single handedly responsible for Hurricanes, but only the racist ones that target Blacks and low income residents. No word yet on who will be to blame when Hurricanes target the rich. My guess is that a liberal democrat will soon offer a panacea of Tax hikes on the wealthy so that the children will not have to suffer under Bush's oppressive hurricane season. Sure, they could go with the "global-warming-is-causing-super-Hurricanes" line of reasoning, but why not cut out the middle man and blame Bush or any other Republican directly. I mean it--they should just come out and say that the NSA is hiding photos of Bush smiling, straddling a hurricane, whipping it up with a big Cowboy hat and hollering "down with darkie!" It would be much more honest and a helluva lot more fun.
