Hurricane Isaac

Hurricanes, even small ones, cause damage to both person and property. As a result, that’s nothing to joke about. But, Rush Limbaugh seems to think otherwise. Mr. Limbaugh theorized that the Obama administration altered forecasts for Hurricane Isaac in order to negatively impact the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

Why does he believe this? Because immediately after the RNC cancelled day one, the forecast for Isaac then moved westward, away from Tampa and the RNC. Post hoc, ergo propter hoc. After, therefore because of it. Rarely, if ever, is this true but Mr. Limbaugh seems to believe that it most certainly is true. The RNC cancelled day one of the convention so, naturally, the Hurricane had done its job so now it could move westward.

Mr. Limbaugh has done an incredible job and made a very lucrative career out of being controversial and placating to the radical right. What gets me through each day is the hope that he doesn’t believe everything he says and he’s just saying it because he knows it will increase revenue. The problem is that some of his listeners do believe it and that is scary.

“I’m just telling you folks, when you put this all together in this timeline, I’m telling you, it’s unbelievable!” You, Mr. Limbaugh, are unbelievable.
