"Hurricane Isaac Is God's Punishment for GOP"

I kept telling myself over the weekend that I needed to cruise over to the Democratic Underground to see which lunatic was going to be first to make the claim that Hurricane Isaac is God's punishment for the Republican party's stance on Medicare. I didn't get around to it.

Besides, wouldn't a post from one of the radical Islamist websites making the same claim, but this time linking it to Allah's wrath on the puppets of the Zionist entity? But I didn't do that either.

I knew someone would make the claim that the hurricane was God's punishment for the GOP, I just think that it would have come from World Net Daily. I guess my decision never to read WND again was the right one as this is what passes for an editorial at the home of Birthers and other fringe crazies these days:

Could Hurricane Isaac’s disrupting of the Republican convention here be tied to recent policy decisions by the GOP leadership and Barack Obama?

That question is being raised by Bible prophecy expert William Koenig, whose book, “Eye to Eye: Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel,” links catastrophic hurricanes hitting the U.S. with changes in policy toward Israel....

“This is the second straight Republican convention postponed due to a major hurricane,” points out Koenig. “And this is the third straight Republican convention that became secondary news due to a hurricane. Bush was pressuring Israel during the times of the 2004 and 2008 conventions.”

Apparently the only other entity in the universe who cares about the Republican Party platform outside a few dozen party activists and MSNBC hosts is the Lord of Hosts, YWHY!
