Wesley Pruden, editor in chief of the Washington Times eloquently stated in his September 6th column what I, and millions of other commonsense laden Americans have been thinking and saying since the beginning of the Katrina flood. It is not The President's fault that this tragedy happened, and yet the looney left would rather sell off the plight of thousands of victims for political profit than use their energy and voice to try to unify the country and heal the brokenness of an entire region. There is little doubt that although a majority of the hardcore left would proudly profess themselves as atheists or agnostics, they have unwittingly become a part of an out of touch cult, and now worship at the alter of Bush hatred. They have become so blinded by their own rage they can no longer discern between healthy and measured debate and acidic lunacy that is eating away at the fabric that holds this country together.
A good example of this can be found in our friend Sean Penn as he took time off from his valuable world travels and donated himself to be a living metaphor for the left when he entered the fray in NO. While we all should at least tip our hats to our favorite stoner from "Fast Times" for showing up and trying to help, you can't help but notice the irony of his initial rescue effort. As he so heroically launched his boat, affectionately dubbed, "The Tasty Wave", Sean, dressed in a flack jacket, surrounded by security, and photographers to capture the moments, stood atop the bow not unlike Washington crossing the Delaware and proudly announced for all to hear, "Stand Back! I'm an actor! I will rescue you!" Sadly, like the left itself, He forgot to put in the drain plug and The Tasty Wave slowly succumbed to the toxic soup. Alas our hero would be back, and not missing a beat, proceeded to lend his political insights to the public airwaves and declared this to be "the criminal negligence of the Bush administration". Thanks Sean, your intellect and analysis are precious, but your boating skills are lacking.
