Democratic Leader Laughs About Hurricane Gustav Hitting During the Republican National Convention

Well, this is just disgusting.  The following is a video captured on a flight back from the DNC, of former DNC chairman Don Fowler and Representative John Spratt (D-SC) (transcript below):

The hurricane’s going to hit New Orleans about the time they start. [Chuckle] The timing is — at least it appears now that it’ll be there Monday. That just demonstrates that God’s on our side. [Laughter] … Everything’s cool.

That’s just disturbing.  I don’t care who you are – you shouldn’t want a hurricane to hit EVER, and to want to get political gain out of it is just disgusting.  If a Republican said that, I’d be posting the same thing right now.  It’s shameful and wrong!

Done Ranting,

    But I guess it’s OK if you’re a Republican.

    And that’s totally unacceptable too! I’m tired of partisan crap going on like this.

    Although I’ll note that rain and a hurricane are 2 different things. Also, the dude praying for rain isn’t an RNC member, but it’s still disgusting and wrong.

  3. Jason Gillman Says:

    The hurricane is a pretty crappy deal for all of those folks again. I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone, for any reason.

    But the tragedy that is the hurricane already shows the Republican governor’s handling is going to make a difference, and minimize the personal tragedy.

    Not sure if there is a partisan advantage for either camp. Definitely not one worth laughing about.

    I will say that if this hits New Orleans, I still think whatever is damaged should just be demolished and not rebuilt. New Orleans has been a disaster waiting to happen and got exceptionally lucky for years. Now the laws of probability are catching up to it.

    This Just in..

    Even fellow michigander Michael Moore is Happy.

    Hard to believe the pettiness of people running our country. If this does not show the blatant disregard for people and the pursuit of power over everything else, I am not sure what does. Sickens me that we have politicians like this in this country.

    I find it a act of stupidity! How can they find anything funny in this. Has the Democratic Party turned into a bunch of mean spirited people? I bet if were headed toward South Carolina it would not be funny moment! They should be ashamed of themselves and publically embarassed!
    I find my crossing over this election to vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin a lot easier to do now! If this is how Democrats act now a days maybe I’m in the wrong party after all.

    Jason, I think I knew about that, but I figured I wouldn’t insult the decent Democrats by lumping Mikey in with them.

    Jonnee, that video was already posted. See my comments above.
