“Hurricanes happen.”

posted by on September 1 at 8:23 AM


Hey, that’s Tucker Carlson. (He’s on the right.) Carlson thinks George W. Bush should be here at the RNC, not hunkered down in Texas “monitoring the situation” and pretending that he’s somehow responsible for the weather. I asked Carlson if he thought RNC delegates should at least get a fly-over from the president. You know, something like Bush did for the Gulf Coast after Katrina…


Even if George W. Bush can’t come to the RNC, surely he could fly in low over Minneapolis, peer wistfully out the window of Air Force One, and survey the wreckage he’s left behind?

Carlson agreed.

Do mine eyes deceive me, or is Tucker Carlson actually wearing a grownup tie, instead of whatever you want to call that hideous bowtie of his. Will wonders never cease.

Dan, what's your take on Bristol being pregnant? Have you asked any repubs there about it?

I wishi Tucker would go back to the bow-tie. Either way his best days are behind him.

Dan - don't go for the Bristol bait. I think DailyKos got pwned.

MrEdCT, what "bait"? Bristol *is* currently pregnant, as confirmed by Sarah's team. I not referencing the grandmother rumor.

Poor W, he can't win for losing.

"survey the wreckage he's left behind"

That's awesome, Dan! I'm still laughing.

Why would anyone ask Tucker Carlson for his opinion on anything?

I'm more surprised to see Tucker talking to a black guy than wearing a normal tie.

Great use of lyrics from McCain's musical: "My Mayor Lady" set in Wassila where 'urricanes 'ardly 'appen including such songs as "I'm Getting Married in the Tundra" and "McCain in Maine".
