As I head off to vacation, let us marvel at Newt Ginrich marvelling at God's
mysterious ways (courtesy of Media Matters):
newtgingrich As callista and i watched what dc weather says will be 12 to 22 inches of snow i wondered if God was sending a message about copenhagen
newtgingrich After the expanding revelations of dishonesty in climategate having a massive snow storm as obama promises our money to the world is ironic
newtgingrich There is something jimmy carter like about weather service upgrading frrom winter storm to blizzard as global warming conference wants US $
But he was not alone. There was disagreement about the meaning of the snow storm. Here is Erick Erickson at the not-worth-evaluating Red State blog:
Over at Talking Points Memo, Brian Beutler chronicles the follies of the Democrats and health care.
Joe Lieberman has gone back to Connecticut in advance of the blizzard. This leaves the Democrats needing Republican votes to get back to health care.
At the end of the article, Brian writes, “[D]on’t be surprised to hear a new Republican talking point: Even Mother Nature hates health care reform.”
I hate to correct him, but actually the talking point is that God hates the Democrats’ health care deform. With funding death panels and abortions, of course the Almighty would send a snow storm or, in Brian’s words, a snowpocalypse to shut down Washington.
Oh, and kudos to Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council for organizing the “pray-in.” Looks to be working.
I am tempted to think the second of these is a joke, but the "death panels" remark seems to be serious.
