|Al Roker in the Hurricane Sandy mix|
Javier David, a conservative writer in New York City, writes about his experience with the storm: "The worst part of hurricanes? Being tortured by weather casters who can't resist standing in the middle of storm surges, gusty winds and torrential rain like damned fools. Yeah Al Roker, I'm looking at YOU."
Christopher Harris, a conservative in D.C., responds to Javier: "Maybe I am demented, but I sometimes have visions of seeing people suffer for their stupidity when they mess with nature like that. I am the guy, who when I watch Animal Planet, and they are doing Shark Week, I secretly want to see someone who is swimming with the sharks...end up on the menu. I know, I know, I know...as a Christian, I know that I need to prey on that. Get it...prEy on that?!?! I crack myself up sometimes."
"I'm Glad The Presidential Candidates Prioritized The Hurricane"
Ted Sadler, a moderate Democratic blogger in Georgia, is glad that the presidential candidates temporarily limited their campaigns due to the hurricane: "I am proud that President Obama and Governor Romney limited their campaigns because of the storm. To me, the Obama of the first debate didn’t see a need to campaign much more anyway. He did what he wanted to do for the nation and if said nation didn’t like it….peace. He saw no need for a hard sell after giving it his all. "
More: "These campaigns needed suspending and any future donation money should go to storm relief families. Oh, and get ready for some nuts to start talking about heaven’s hand in the election by way of the storm. Heaven only knows if that is the case; but, I will say that I have never seen an incumbent candidate more at peace with the coming results."
"Even Hurricane Sandy Ain't Gonna Stop Us From Voting"
Asserts Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker, a moderate-liberal Democrat and Obama surrogate:
"Expect Liberal Spin On Hurricane Sandy"
Asserts Nadra Enzi, a moderate-conservative Republican in Louisiana, about the storm's political ramifications: "I anticipate liberals will use the 'perfect storm opportunity' of Sandy to drum up even more sympathetic support for Obama's failed presidency.Their new battle cry will be along these lines, 'Obama needs another term to lead the Sandy recovery.' East Coast flood waters will still be churning when this latest con job is unleashed. If only they had a record of economic success to tout as rabidly as the upcoming 'Sandy Spin!'"
