What-me-worry? wingnuts.

Hurricanes have apparently become a partisan issue. As Dave charts Alberto's course, Glenn Reynolds posts pictures of knocked-over deck chairs.

The subtext, I think, is that every hurricane that fails to produce dire results in terms of human suffering provides one more bit of evidence that global warming is a just a big sham cooked up by liberals. But Glenn is a "libertarian" rather than a winger so he rarely gives the subtexts away.

My prediction: the airwaves and blogs will pulse over the next weeks with the efforts of wingers ranting against the MSM's inflation of the hurricane "problem". Then, if and when a big storm hits, they'll all accuse the left of having wanted the devestation to prove their theories right.
