The Truth Erupts

Right now atheists seem to be all abuzz about Yahweh, a.k.a The Volcano God, in some weird attempt to discredit The One we Christians, Jews and Muslims worship today.

Something Called Government Duty

TPMMuckraker | Talking Points Memo | Jindal’s Mockery Of Volcano Monitoring Money Only Looking Dumber After Redoubt Blows:

“At the risk of stating the obvious, using advanced technology to predict when a volcano might erupt, at the most basic level, allows local officials to, um, save people’s lives by evacuating them. It’s hard to think of a better use of government money.
Why is Jindal’s line looking even worse now? Because, as you’ve likely heard, Alaska’s Mount Redoubt, 100 miles southwest of Anchorage, erupted last night. And a USGS geologist confirmed to TPMmuckraker that a portion of the stimulus spending for volcano monitoring that Jindal lampooned has been slated to go to USGS monitoring Redoubt.”

(Via Talking Points Memo.)

This from a man who speaks of the government role in properly handling natural disasters. It looks like the GOP is stuck on stupid, to coin a phrase. First Palin. Now Jindal. When will the GOP this figure out?
UPDATE: I realize there is a double irony here that this eruption occurred in Alaska, Palin’s state. I wonder if she rejected the volcano monitoring money too.
