Will Those Assholes Ever Learn?

First of all, miners trapped in a mine, while engaging for the morons, is not news except to the families of the miners. No more is it news than is Natalie Arubachick or Michael Jackson diddling some kids.

That said, like calling Florida for Bush or calling WMD for Iraq, without sourcing or even the whiff of truth to back it up, all the news agencies ran with "The Miners are Alive! Hallelujah!!" last night. Then, after deciding to actually look for a fact or two they found out, "Oops! They're All Dead." Sorry families. Our bad. Here's an Anderson Cooper 360 t-shirt to ease the pain.


And to think, when I went to bed last night, I had planning on writing this morning about how lucky we were that Bush had us all praying for the miners safe recovery, and that it worked so well. I just don't get it! How could an entire nation's prayers go completely unanswered?! That God fella can sure be a spiteful prick, huh? Oh wait... You don't suppose that the miners believed in evolution, do you? That might just explain it.

Hey! Perhaps something good did come out of this!
Taken from the linked article:
"we don't even know if there is a Lord anymore," she said. "We had a miracle, and it was taken away from us."

We've got one!
Satan, can I have my $50 now?
