People in need of a little perspective

Here’s a conversation between two MoveOn acolytes, courtesy of the Washington Post:

Fazio was working in San Francisco when his partner, Genny Morelli, text-messaged him.
"Did you hear?"She didn't have to fill in the details. He knew, and she knew he would know.
"Oh. My. God. We're in deep (expletive)," is what she remembers him saying.
"Gen, this is the worst freakin' news I could ever imagine," is how he recalls it.
Pop quiz – were they talking about:

a) The terrorist bombings in London
b) Exit polls from Ohio, circa November 2004
c) The deaths of four Navy SEALs who may have been close to capturing Osama
d) Hurricane Dennis
e) The replacement of a moderately-conservative Supreme Court justice with a slightly more conservative justice

If these people flip out like this with O’Connor retiring, what are they going to do when John Paul Stevens or Ruth Bader Ginsberg steps down? Get a grip.

Follow-up – Drudge is reporting that the host of the MoveOn party carefully choreographed what the Washington Post would see and hear. Essentially he told his guests to leave their tinfoil hats and “Bush Lied” T-shirts at home.

Cool Blog, I never really thought about it that way.

I have a Hurricane Katrina blog. It pretty much covers hurricane related stuff.

Thank you - and keep up the thoughts!
