The Wingies are spinning the earthquake

The latest word from Planet Loco:

Glenn Beck says the Japanese catastrophe could be a precursor (my word, obviously not his) to the end of the world.

Bill O'Reilly says the media are guilty of "hyping" the seriousness of radioactive fallout.

Rush Limbaugh used the tragic occasion to to joke about environmentalists.

As Joseph Welch plaintively asked during the McCarthy hearings: "At long last, have you no sense of decency?"

Not then. Not now.

The day after the earthquake, the day after, mind you, I was scanning the radio dial and came across WNIR's mini-Rush, Howie Chizek and the self-righteous crowd that phone into his program making joking remarks about the tragedy and then comments about whether such remarks were appropriate yet (wink, wink). Chizek said that if your grandfather were alive, he'd have been cheering the event.
No sense of decency.

Yeah, and if my grandfather had been alive he would have taken guys like Chizek et al, strapped them to camels with a 15-minute water supply and headed them into the desert. Decent, don't you think?
