Okay conspiracy theorists and absurd political hacks, I'm waiting for the next wave of criticism to come in over Hurricane Charley!
I'm waiting to hear that John Kerry would have provided even FASTER aid, possibly even declaring the areas where Charley hit to be disaster areas even BEFORE the storm came on shore. How would he know which areas would be affected? He was in Vietnam, silly!
Senator Lurch is already complaining that Bush Junior is in the disater area, but then again he'd complain just as loudly if Bush Junior DIDN'T show up already. Damned if he does and damned if he doesn't... from Mister Flip-Flop no less! Well I suppose there HAD to be an advantage to being on both sides of everything.
Charley missed its intended track and became a category 4 hurricane, both of which were not predicted by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. Where's the congressional investigation on NOAA? Why isn't their intelligence on top of these things? We expect the CIA, FBI, NSA, and the other 17 intelligence agencies to know where everyone is at all times, why not expect NOAA to know precisely what a hurricane is supposed to do before it happens?
And to top it all off... I'm waiting for Cynthia McKinney and the rest of the lunatic fringe to start firing off allegations that Bush Junior KNEW in advance about the track of Hurricane Charley and did nothing about it so his rich friends could profit from the recovery. Michael Moore can probably do a documentary on it called "Charley and Me" and complain about the rescue efforts and wasting time on locating lost dogs and cats. Maybe Jadakiss could include all of this in a revised version of his song "Why"... as in "Why did the Floridians have to die? Why did Bush let Charley ride?"
There are certain times when partisan politics need to be put aside, even in the height of election season. Charley's aftermath is one of them.
