Life imitates satire: blame Bush for the hurricanes

A satirical column in, Sept. 8:
"Two hurricanes in two months and George Bush has done nothing to stop them" exclaimed one Kerry supporter. "He knew about these attacks before they happened, he needs to be impeached!"
A writer to a (South Florida) Sun Sentinnel columnist, as reported Sept. 12:
Charley, Frances and now Ivan form an unprecedented three major hurricanes in one month. While Bush fights a war-for-oil in Iraq, his catastrophic energy policies have unleashed nature's attack on Florida.
Does this mean that if we had left Hussein in power, we wouldn't be having these hurricanes? I guess he was more powerful than we thought.
