Hurricane Bonnie slammed into the Florida coast this morning and Charley's not far behind, threatening to turn the southern part of the state into a huge swamp. There's no question that these giant storms are the work of El Niño, which is caused by El Busho refusing to ratify El Kyoto. But with the presidential election three months away, I can't help being a little skeptical about the timing of these events. Is it a mere coincidence that two hurricanes almost simultaneously slam into a highly contested state in the 2000 elections? Florida is full of people who are still bitter from being ripped off by Bush four years ago, and they're just itching to get their revenge on him in the voting booth this year. What better way to disenfranchise thousands of rural blacks, undocumented workers, cuban exiles, flamboyant homosexuals, and elderly Holocaust victims than to kill them with a series of seemingly "random" natural disasters?
Meanwhile, Bushie is conveniently hundreds of miles away in warm, dry Las Vegas, futilely trying to explain to the big-haired locals why he dumped tons of radioactive nuclear waste on their pristine Nevada wilderness.
If it weren't so horrifyingly insane, it would almost be funny.
