Hurricanes, Florida, and God
A few days ago I posted a link to a Florida map which purported to show that the recent hurricanes hit Republican areas only. It has created quite a hubbub, elsewhere as well as here, with eight comments posted so far, quite a lot for PoliZeros. Apparently, some clueless conservatives actually think I took the map seriously.
So, in hopes of tossing more gasoline on the fire, I post this from reader David Robison (who you can email here)
I assume youâ€™re the same Bob Morris who put together the great map of Florida counties, 2000 election voting and the hurricanes of this year. I love it!
While I think the map is great, I am NOT the Bob Morris who created it, although I think we’d like each other if we met. Great names think alike.
A few weeks ago, before Ivan, I put together an animation.
A most prescient animation indeed! (Boldface added.)
Feel free to pass the link on. Cheers and good luck to all of us in November.
Reader Hugh Lowe notes:
I wanted to confirm for you that it is for sure a message from God. Heed the Scriptures:
Job 27:21. The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth: and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.
Job 27:22. For [God] shall cast upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.
Job 27:23. [Men] shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.
Well, I guess that settles it!
PS As one who has been through hurricanes, I wouldn’t wish them on anyone, not even Jeb Bush.
However since Bob Woodward reported that Dubya believes Jesus told him to invade Iraq, it’s only fair that lefties can believe God is smiting Florida for its sins in the 2000 election. Well, those lefties who still believe in God and sin, that is…
