    Amazing how the right-wing media arm manages to distort stuff in peoples' minds. You're either unaware that Obama actually said we use fewer bayonets, not that we don't use them, or you're just lying right now.

    Which is it? Are you lying or have you just forgotten/never knew what was actually said?

    Remember what Mr. Etch a Sketch said about Fema a year ago?

    Romney in 2011: Shut down FEMA, let the states handle it - Salon.com

    My Guess is that Mr. Etch-a-Sketch will be flip flopping and singing a different tune. Anyone wanna bet?

    Where Will Sandy Rank Among These Worst U.S. Storms Of All Time?
    I'm going to go out on a limb and say nowhere on the list at all.

    With tropical storm force winds 1,000 miles across, Sandy is a giant, with some saying this might be the biggest storm ever to hit the eastern seaboard and one of the biggest ever to land on the U.S. Really?
    It's not the size of the storm, it's the power and force it generates. 90 mph winds are pretty mild.

    Well, you have to admit: at the time, that was still a reasonable position to take, bearing in mind FEMA's legendarily incompetent handling of Katrina.

    (P.S. Everyone on both sides, please, for Christ's sake, stop politicizing. You're annoying the adults.)

    FEMA shouldn't have had to bail people out in the first place. When a hurricane that strong is coming your way, and you live below sea level in a marsh that's surrounded by decrepit old levies that just barely keep the water out as they are, it probably means you should get the **** out as soon as possible. Three times this has happened in less than a ten year period, and people still keep going back and rebuilding.

    But good news for easterners who apparently don't know what a devastating hurricane looks like: Sandy isn't even close to being that bad.

    Not much has happened here. A pretty rainy windy day is all. I didn't even lose power, yet anyway.

    Yeah, true, true...it's not the size of the penis, it's the force behind it. I went out on a limb and I said it.

    Not cold. Pretty warm actually. It must be in the 60s right now.
