Right on for Kanye West…

Rapper Kanye West said what needed to be said on NBC’s Hurricane fundraiser on Friday night.

George Bush doesn’t care about black people!

Read all about it here and here.

I also like that the Washington Post says something that’s needed to be said for a long time too:

(Mike) Myers is apparently as dumb as his Alfalfa hair…

In all seriousness folks, while I understand people decrying anyone who tries to use a national tragedy for political capital, as they say in NOLA, facts is facts. The federal government’s and George W. Bush’s response to this situation was pathetic. Things that should have been happening on Monday only started happening on Thursday after every press outlet in the country was heaping criticism on Bush, the Federal Government and the Republican Party.

One has to wonder if Kayne West is right. I tend to think it has more to do with the fact that Bush and the GOP are financially beholden to the religious right wing who were ready and willing on Monday to say that Hurricane Katrina was some kind of God-driven vengeance upon the sinners of New Orleans. Since Bush readily identifies himself with evangelical Christians maybe he agreed with them that God smote New Orleans for being a bevy of sin.

If there is a God that even remotely resembles the Christian idea of one then these fundamentalist folks are in for a surprise when they’re judged insufficiently compassionate and overly judgemental by their God. They’ve apparently skipped the bit in the Bible where God says that he alone may judge and condemn.
