The Corner


It seems that some Hollywood types — Samuel L. Jackson and Ellen Barkin — have been expressing their hopes that Hurricane Isaac will wipe out those of us in Tampa, or should have wiped us out, or whatever. Apparently, Barkin “retweeted” a message that said, “C’mon #Isaac! Wash every pro-life, anti-education, anti-woman, xenophobic, gay-bashing, racist SOB right into the ocean! #RNC.”

I was most interested in the use of that term “pro-life.” A compliment, of a sort.

And remember: A party that hopes that the weather will harm the other party is a party with very, very little to run on.
