Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Ace of Spades

This about sums up why I have started seething over the politics of Hurricane Katrina. Go. Read.

UPDATE: And if you haven't read his Tribes piece yet, then grab a fresh cup o' joe and head on over to Bill Whittle's place. 'Zackly.

UPDATE DEUX: Once again, Unpartisan is linking and characterizing my post as being "From the Left".

Well, if it's on the Internet, it must be true. So just let me bring to your attention two other ticking time bombs the Bush Administration continues to ignore, in part because they're too busy filling their pockets with windfall corporate kickbacks and in part because maybe they don't mind so much the potential fallout.

First, there's the Great Rift Valley in Eastern Africa. Do you know that even as you read this, tectonic forces are slowly tearing that part of the world to pieces? Sooner or later, the Golden Horn is going to be flung into the Indian Ocean and the GRV will be innundated by a new sea and the Bush Administration is not doing a single goddam thing to stop it! Why this incredible lack of concern? It's easy. That part of the world is full of Africans and endangered wildlife, two groups this racist, eco-hating Administration couldn't care less about. Plus, the creation of the new sea will make it easier for Dick Cheney's supertankers to sail up to Middle Eastern ports, there to load up on all that oil we're secretly stealing from the Iraqis.

Second, Saturn's rings may be collapsing. When Chimpy McShrub refused to join the rest of the Civilized World in signing the Kyoto Treaty, he didn't even stop to think that global warming might have interplanetary repercussions, did he? (Probably because he and Puppemaster Karl Rove were too busy sticking firecrackers up the backside of Cindy Sheehan's cute pet puppy, or something.) My Goddess! The very fabric of the solar system is changing and our "Selected Leader" has been on vacation!

Oh, I grieve for our Mother.

UPDATE TROIS: The crack young staff of the Hatemonger's Quarterly pile on with a litany of further crimes against Personanity by the eeeeeevil Chimperator.

And asteroids. Don't forget asteroids. An asteroid will hit the earth one day and Chimpy McHallibush is doing nothing to stop it.

Darn you, Robbo Llamabutcher! You've beaten me to another great space story, and you used it to parody the current Katrina screed! If it weren't for the fact that you're a rich, white, upper-echelon llama, I'd be out to get you. As it is, you'll get your comeuppance. Kos told me so.

And don't forget the Giant Space Hamsters! Their coming invasion of our peaceful planet is entirely Chimpy McHitler's fault.

The sun is going to run out of fuel someday and explode, killing off all life on earth. What is the evil Chimpy doing about it? Nothing. All those endangered species are going to suffer the most.
