As the gulf coast is about to be hit by hurricane Gustav, the twin cities of Minnesota are facing a hurricane of liberal media. The Dakota Best Western in Eagan where I have been staying is mostly populated by the staff and crew of NBC and MSNBC. . I was appalled by the conversations I overheard standing in the lobby. Laughing and joking, they were genuinely gleeful about the possibility that the Republican Convention might be impacted by the natural disaster likely to strike the south east on the opening night of the convention. One joked, “Its God’s revenge against George Bush.” Instead of concern for the tens of thousands of people whose lives and property are in serious jeopardy, they were more annoyed at how it might inconvenience them if Senator McCain chose to change the schedule in light of events.
Tonight my thoughts and prayers will be with Republican governor’s Christ (FL), Jindal (LA), Perry (TX), Barbour (MS) and Bob Riley (AL) as well as the people from every party and no party at all who live on the gulf coast. One thing both Republicans and Democrats can agree on is that we should never again let a foreseeable natural disaster like Hurricane Katrina risk the lives of people who because of poverty could not escape the path of the storm. I believe that most Americans do not share the calloused sentiments of the NBC/MSNBC and they will be hoping the best for the people of the gulf and not the worst for Republicans.
