Canadian Cynic: "If you're looking for sympathy, you're knocking on the wrong door."

It appears the Canadian Cynic is happy that the evil Americans are finally getting theirs with Hurricane Katrina as you can read in this post. The Canadian Perasma, a fellow Progressive Blogger, brought the posts forward.

It's one thing to criticize the American administration, it's another to think it karma that the U.S. is getting hit with a hurricane, all with hand-wringing glee. Sometimes the rage we have against an administration can blind us to tragedy.

I'm not sure if CC set up this post to bait responses, or if CC is having a bad day.

If that's representative of being "progressive", I'll have no part.

Spammed, again. This is almost fun.

In 2004 there was a whole movie like that. "The Day After Tomorrow" was practically gleeful about the U.S. getting mostly covered in ice and millions dying. In the final scenes, the chastened vice-president (the villian of the piece who bore a striking resemblance to Cheney) was forced to apologize for American "arrogance" and happy orchestral music played over the final shot of a spinning, blue planet; now so peaceful and good as finally the evil U.S. has been destroyed and humbled. I laughed through most of the movie, but the end made me nauseous.
