There are no atheists in a storm shelter…

CNN can’t even pander right.

I’m under the impression that finding an atheist in Oklahoma is a little like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack.

Maybe Blitzer assumes everybody in Oklahoma is a fundamentalist Christian. I wonder if he would’ve asked that question to a San Francisco earthquake survivor.

Wolf apparently thought the same. Probably had them cut the banjo music for the bump when he realized they may not all live up to the stereotype.

Has Wolf thanked Dear Leader..?

I’ll be Blitzer’s next question was “Do you still cling to guns and religion?”

She asked Mother Earth / Gaia to keep her and her family safe.

Wasn’t it Mother Earth / Gaia who just got done kicking the crap out of her?

To rip off Matthew 5, Mother Earth/Gaia makes the rain (and presumably the tornadoes) fall on both the just and the unjust alike.

Ole Wolfie dipped his toe in, and got it bitten off by a piranha.

Network news … last night Diane Sawyer asked a 7 year old trapped in the tornado what she was thinking and what she was feeling. It’s utter sensationalism. It’s worthless! Now I don’t know what to do with my TV.

Wow, that lady has some balls to say that in Oklahoma. If there wasn’t a tornado for others to think about I bet she’d be the scandal of the neighborhood.
