Rant: What if God really is pissed at the GOP?

Or what if, perhaps, Republicans really are bad for the environment insofar as they annoy Mom Urth and she reacts?

Or something like that.

Yeah, I know it sounds specious. But maybe there's something to it.

Here's a post on News From Babylon about the pattern of hurricane activity in Florida this year. Seems to track closely on Republican territory and avoid Democratic digs, doesn't it? If it's accurate, that is.

If that was all, I'd be skeptical. Er, ah, well, I am skeptical. But there's more.

Remember Mt. St. Helens? Last time she erupted was May of 1980, about the time it was becoming apparent that Ronald Reagan would be the 40th President of the United States.

Last week, she started rumbling again. But then Kerry wiped the floor with Bush in their first "debate," and she let off some steam and settled down a bit. Now there's magma moving down there and the scientists are saying she may rear back and give us a real one. Not one on the 1980 scale (Bush doesn't rate up there with the Gipper, after all), but a real eruption.

I wonder if maybe the short-term eruption prospects aren't linked to how Bush does in the October 8th "debate," or perhaps to the next batch of poll numbers?

Okay, okay, it's just a thought -- but maybe what we're seeing here is evidence, however indirect, of the veracity of Lovelock's "Gaea Hypothesis." Or of the Revelation of St. John the Divine.

"Dear President Bush -- Wait 'til Jesus gets his hands on you, you little bastard."
