Rush Limbaugh says Iceland eruption caused by Health Care Reform
Rush Limbaugh is convinced the volcanic eruption in Iceland, and the subsequent delays in air travel (not to mention all the herds threatened by toxic ash) was caused not by the buildup of pressure below the Earth’s crust, but rather from God’s wrath regarding health care. In other words, the big man in the sky is bellowing his discontent at the thought of 40 million Americans finally having access to health care.
It must be pretty satisfying to claim, with no evidence whatsoever, that natural disasters are caused by a deity acting out his displeasure over policies that you don’t tend to agree with.
