Another Puerto Rico?

Hurricane Michael left death and destruction across the SouthEast, but Donald Trump said it was ok for him to go ahead and hold a political rally, because: We had it under great control. Because FEMA and everything else. We had White House, we had on the plane, on Air Force One. I was totally monitoring. […]

Lie like you just don’t care

I know none of this is a surprise, but given that Trump’s campaign rallies have gotten so old and tired that even Fox News isn’t broadcasting them live anymore, this seems particularly germane. Yesterday, Donald Trump defended his decision to proceed with a political rally in Pennsylvania as hurricane Michael devastated the Florida panhandle and […]

FEMA Fumbles

You can’t make this kind of stuff up. Can FEMA look any more incompetent? With Hurricane Florence causing historically massive flooding on the east coast FEMA decided it was a good time to introduce a “Presidential alert” system, which would allow Donald Trump to send an emergency message to your mobile phone, which you cannot […]

Republicans, you’re doing a heck of a job

According to a new survey done by Public Policy Polling in Louisiana, slightly more Republicans in the state blame Barack Obama for the inadequate response to Hurricane Katrina than blame George W Bush. Even though the hurricane that battered Louisiana occurred while Bush was president, and three years before Obama became president. Interestingly, the largest […]

State of Emergency

Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency for Florida, although some might wonder whether it is because of the approaching hurricane, or because of the impending inundation of Republicans arriving for the convention. Isaac has already caused three deaths in Haiti. I hope everyone stays safe. © Jim Morin UPDATE: The Republicans have […]

Freaky

© Mike Thompson I’m noticing that the wing-nut crowd isn’t making fun of climate change very much recently. I guess they are blaming it on God instead. UPDATE: The Science Guy goes on Fox News to discuss climate change and Hurricane Irene, and explains slowly and carefully:

It’s all Obama’s fault
