    1. Wolcott won’t click…..he’s probably watching the live hurricane coverage with the same hormone levels that frat boys generate when visiting their first strip joint.

    1. “Strip joint”?  What is this “strip joint” you speak of?

      Now it can be told!  The “Angry Gaia” is an oil trader on the NYMEX!

    1. The_Real_JeffS,

      Well it will be easy to test.  He won’t be able to stop smiling for the next two weeks!  I know I couldn’t.

    1. Wolcott today:

      I’ve removed my earlier post about hurricanes (’An Ignoble Confession’); it was written in a frivolous vacation mood, and this is not the time for frivolity.

      Then it’s on to Iraq. Looks like his Web skills went out with his basic reasoning skills, though, because that post is still there. It’s the thought that counts.

      P.S. Oh! And now that post has a disclaimer:

      (THIS HAS PROVEN TO BE MY MOST POPULAR POST AMONG RIGHTWING BLOGGERS. I HAVE COME TO CONSIDER IT MY GIFT TO THEM–OR YOU, IF YOU HAPPEN TO BE ONE OF ‘THEM.’ WHENEVER A NEW STORM BREWS, I FEEL CONFIDENT YOU WILL RETURN HERE TO QUOTE IT YET AGAIN.

      AND FOR THOSE OF YOU DISCOVERING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME, HOLD ON TO YOUR PHONY INDIGNATION AND LET IT WARM YOU THROUGH THE DARK DAYS AHEAD.

      KISSES AND TWINKLING THOUGHTS FROM ME,
      JW)

      You know the old saying: THE MERE EXISTENCE OF RIGHT-WINGERS MEANS NEVER HAVING TO SAY YOU’RE SORRY. Well, he’s obviously not sure what to do with his publicly expressed murder fantasies, so I say we let him figure it out. You know how excitable these young people can be.

    1. Lemme see.  Publicly wishing a hurricane would wipe out several million people in Florida was a moment of vacation frivolity.  Gee, I’ll bet ol’ Jimmy is a barrel of laughs on vacation.

    1. Yeah, it’s ‘phony indignation’ that makes us angry about deaths wished upon innocents, in a thoughtless cavalier fashion sickeningly calculated only to create some kind of cred among the bedwetting poseur ‘humans-are-a-virus’ crowd, no less. What a completely brain-dead fucktard. I can only assume he’s in denial over his own base stupidity.

    1. RebeccaH—Hey, how real can any of those people be?  It’s not like he ever met any of them at Elaine’s during a Woody Allen jam…

    1. That Wolcott.  Such a sassy guy.

    1. This is so incredibly sad. My wife and I visited “N’Awlins” a few years back; in fact, this computer I’m on now (at work) has a series of photos from there as part of the screensaver: Riverwalk; beignets at Cafe du Monde; po’boys and dirty rice; the French Quarter; Canal Street; The “American Sector”; and an unforgettable dinner at “Commander’s Palace”. Hard to imagine the damage … 🙁

    1. It’s pretty beat up, but the French Quarter is still standing. Some parts of New Orleans are flooded, but it could have been so much worse. There are lots of pictures here. (Warning: Free Republic site, bandwidth heavy.) I wouldn’t want to be the people who left those cars parked outside, though, nor the company that owns that oil rig.

    1. By the way, some of the pictures are from cities other than New Orleans. Biloxi and Gulfport got well pounded.

    1. You have heard this is all Bush’s fault, right?

    1. On a serious note. All the very best to our American friends copping a pounding in Hurricane Katrina. May your ‘hatches’ remain ‘battened down’. Stay safe.

    1. Well, if a meteorite plunged into the atmosphere, and ended up splattering James Wolcott across his computer, I’d mourn more for the loss of a perfectly good keyboard—it’d be impossible to clean out all of the nooks and crannies.

    1. It’s pretty beat up, but the French Quarter is still standing.

      My knowledge of N’awlins’ geography is a little shaky, but I believe the French Quarter is on higher ground than a lot of the rest of the city, which ought to help.
