The videotape posted by Matt below is not just disgusting, it's also profoundly sad.

Remember the outrage when Hillary Clinton said a terrorist attack would "help" Republicans?
  At the time, Chris Dodd noted  correctly that:

Frankly, I find it tasteless to discuss political implications when talking about a potential terrorist attack on the United States.

Well, indeed.  But the truth is that there are some people who care about nothing so much as "who's up" and "who's down" in politics -- human consequences are unimportant.  It's a sad irony, because isn't politics supposed to be  about human consequences?  And what's disturbing is that you know that the views expressed by Pratt and Fowler aren't limited to them.

As for their comment that a hurricane shows "God's on [their] side" -- well, contrary to claims of the libs over the years, it suggests that perhaps it wasn't George W. Bush who was improperly arrogating to himself the approval of the Almight, doesn't it?  

Abraham Lincoln said, "[M]y concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side."  I wonder if Spratt and Fowler think they're on God's side when they're welcoming  news of a natural disaster -- or if they even care.
