Katrina vs. 9/11

A couple of days ago, Charles Johnson briefly reverted to "DailyKos Watch" mode so he could make the following observation:

Democratic consultant and idiotblogger Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga seems to have trouble distinguishing between deliberate acts of war and natural disasters.

However, Markos Moulitsas "Screw Them" Zuniga isn't the only one.

Currently featured on the front page of the "transitional" Pajamas Media website is a NOAA photo of a drowned neighborhood in New Orleans, accompanied by the following quote from none other than Our Leader:
It's as if the entire Gulf Coast were obliterated by the worst kind of weapon you can imagine.

The other aspect of Kos' quote to which Charles violently objects is his apparent belief that Katrina was "worse than 9/11."

To which we can only respond by linking to this Salon article, in which a volunteer rescue worker from Texas recounts his experiences just after the storm. He writes,
I was in New York during Sept. 11 and the weeks that followed, and I say the following with complete certainty: This disaster is so much worse than Sept. 11 that they are not even comparable. Maybe people are already saying this, or maybe it's not a fashionable sentiment. Either way, it's true.

There are signs that even the conservative MSM are starting to turn against Our Leader -- much to the undoubted chagrin of Charles Johnson, whose severe BDS (Bush Deification Syndrome) shows no signs of abating. Perhaps the U.S. will, in the future, remember "8/29" as the day that Everything Changed™ (Again).

Charles Johnson still thinks it's 8/28.
