We are NOT making fun of death, destruction and tragedy, and this is a real tragedy. It looks like the death toll from the tornadoes is going to hit 100 people, and god only knows how many survived but will be displaced by the storm for an undetermined amount of time. The pictures on the news sites are terrible and grim.
If only someone with some clout, like the Minority Leader of the Senate could do something… but there is no mention of the Climate Change legislation that is being held hostage in the Senate by the usual suspects: Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul.
If they were sincere, maybe that blockade would crumble. But bet me it won’t.
Anyway, onto the thoughts and prayers:
Let’s pause at Rand Paul to remember that he has objected to and delayed federal response to pretty much all natural disasters because he doesn’t think that it is the gubmint’s responsibility to relieve Americans in a disaster… except in Kentucky, it seems. The way-back twitter machine never disappoints.
Weird innit how that principled Libertarianism vanishes when it comes to himself.
