Former DNC Chairman Don Fowler was flying from the Democratic convention in Denver to North Carolina when he was recorded saying that Hurricane Gustav shows that “God’s on our side.” The resultant video was posted at RedState.com, and Fowler was forced to apologize:
“If this offended anybody, I personally apologize,” Fowler told ABC News. “It was a mistake, and it was a satirical statement made in jest. And one that I clearly don’t believe.” . . .
“One doesn’t anticipate that one’s private conversation will be surreptitiously taped by some right-wing nutcase,” said Fowler. “But that’s the nature of what we’re dealing with.”
Well, who’s the real “nutcase” here? The guy who gloats about partisan advantage from a destructive storm, or the guy who surreptitiously records the gloating?
