Another Illustration of Partisan Values

In My Left Wing, Malacandra has posted screen grabs from today of the home pages of the Democratic and Republican parties. Half of the Democrats' home page is devoted to encouraging people to donate to hurricane relief. The Republicans' home page features merely a link to "American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund", with no explicit reference to helping the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Y'know, it reminds me of the parable of the Good Samaritan. The people who were most self-satisfied about their righteousness walked right on by a man desperately in need of help; the person who rescued him was the equivalent, in the eyes of the "moral majority" of Jesus' time, of a Volvo-driving, Birkenstock-wearing, latte-drinking, sin-tolerating Godless Librul.

By not suggesting to their faithful that they might contribute to help the people of New Orleans, the GOP is avoiding politicizing it.

Now if they could get those d--n partisan Democrats and that liberal media to shut up, too, no one would have to know that people are hungry, homeless, and hopeless.
