Eye to Eye with the Storm

If this is the person that the Democratic Party is hoping will lead them out of the desert, then they are in very deep trouble. Cindy Sheehan in her gentle, loving way expresses what--to her-- is the most significant feature of the horrible tragedy unfolding in New Orleans:

"George is finished playing golf and telling his fables in San Diego, so he will be heading to Louisiana to see the devastation that his environmental policies and his killing policies have caused."

She is not alone in her intense hatred--just check out a few of the usual Bush-hating blogs for more venom, rage, and wildly bizarre accusations and that truly exploit the disaster for political gain. I have often thought that how one responds to a crisis is the truer measure of one's soul than almost anything else.

It would be hilarious, if there weren't real people suffering on the Gulf Coast. Mother Sheehan's "absolute moral authority" can't sink much lower.

Glenn Reynolds has a list of places to contribute. Keep checking Michelle Malkin and The Anchoress for updates and other links.

American generosity is second to none. Please donate to your favorite charity to help with this disaster.
