Sheehan Says Hurricane Rita Is Just Rain

Mother Sheehan has taken the time out of her otherwise busy day, lecturing the nation and canoodling with the Reverend Jackson, to tell us we should pay attention to her and not to hurricane Rita.

From the Howard Dean paid shill site, the Daily Kos :

Floodwaters surround damaged homes in the aftermath of Hurricane Rita Sunday, Sept. 25, 2005 in Cameron, La.

rita ( 3.33 / 3 )

i am watching cnn and it is 100 percent rita…even though it is a little wind and a little rain…it is bad, but there are other things going on in this country today…and in the world!!!!

That’s kinda understandable ( 4.00 / 2 )

Rita is just a chicken coming home to roost.

And it’s a big chicken.

Unfortunately, the other chickens are still coming.

Shame ( none / 1 )

it is 100 percent rita…even though it is a little wind and a little rain

I’m in Southeast Texas with family on the coast and in Lake Jackson, LA.

I’d like you to tell us it’s just a little wind and rain. They’ve lost their homes, jobs and businesses and gone through fear and panic while you bask in your fan’s adulation, party with your celebrity friends and play the star.

Shame on you, you’re jealous of media coverage of other’s suffering. You’ve become a caricature and I no longer support you. I’m ashamed I ever did.

i am sorry ( none / 1 )

when i was watching cnn this morning, that’s what it was…i know it was much worse earlier and it was devastating, i didn’t make myself clear and i apologize.

i also know that the media will cover anything else besides the war.

Before today I would have just believed you, but.. ( 4.00 / 3 )

Cindy, these posts have time stamps.

when i was watching cnn this morning, that’s what it was

Four hours before your post, the eye hit just east of Port Arthur and west of Lake Charles. Between then and two hours after your post, hurricane force winds were tearing through Beaumont and Orange, TX and all through Vermillion Parrish, LA..

Imagine, if you can, what was happening to those poor people while you were watching tv and getting upset about them covering "a little wind and a little rain" rather than your special day.

it was devastating earlier

And during. And after.

You might also realize that the people in a hurricane’s wake don’t suddenly get happy and whole an hour after the eye passes over. It’s still not a little wind and a little rain to them. Do you know they are still very afraid down there – right now, Cindy, trying to find 1,000 people lost in Vermillion as I type..

You can find the story now on CNN’s website. I’m very sorry, it’s slightly above the story about you – that’s just so unfair too isn’t it.

i also know that the media will cover anything
