THE ISLAMIC SOLUTION TO AN OUTAGE

"To denounce the lack of services provided by the Americans, pray to Muhammad," he said as the crowd roared back their prayer. "To denounce the lack of electricity, pray to Muhammad."
Via Eschaton: the New York Times reports about Shiites solving their own electricity outage problem and forming militias (2nd Amendment-style) to protect their holy sites.

Thanks to Eschaton once more: obviously, the Republicans were too busy making the government small enough to make it fit in our bedroom, to care about America's problems. President Bush was lobbying against fixing our nation's electrical grid and the Republicans voted down the bill that proposes fixing our grids three seperate times. Quite sad. We can blame the Canadians all we want, but it's like the mayor of Ontario said: "The Americans never take any responsibility for anything." Change 'Americans' to 'Republicans' and you hit the nail in the coffin.
