Charles Krauthammer today is blunt and to the point:

In less enlightened times there was no catastrophe independent of human agency. When the plague or some other natural disaster struck, witches were burned, Jews were massacred and all felt better (except the witches and Jews).

A few centuries later, our progressive thinkers have progressed not an inch. No fall of a sparrow on this planet is not attributed to sin and human perfidy. The three current favorites are: (1) global warming, (2) the war in Iraq and (3) tax cuts. Katrina hits and the unholy trinity is immediately invoked to damn sinner-in-chief George W. Bush.

This kind of stupidity merits no attention whatsoever, but I'll give it a paragraph.

You should read his paragraph.

It is unfortunate that "this kind of stupidity" seems to run rampant on the Left side of the political spectrum (although the Right side is not immune from it either). It is sad that it must be pointed out how delusional and primitive such thinking is --over and over again.

Katrina caused all the suffering. It was aided and abetted by human incompetence at all governmental levels. Krauthammer has listed a heirarchy of blame and idiotic behavior. In describing each level, he is straightforward and honest. You may not like it, but there it is.

Let those who are without sin cast the first stone.
