Time to cut Weather service funding. NOW.
I mean really, how rude. how inconsiderate. how DARE the Weather Service, a government entity, no less, issue a warning about some storm. OK, some windstorm, with a few funnel clouds. Well, ok, it was a tornado warning. But still, it made our feckless leader look like a scared, insiginficunt, little prick, getting into a massively heavy armored vehicle just to avoid a little wind.

Hell, I thought Junior liked wind. Especially breaking it.

Obviously, this storm warning made the president look, well foolish. We can't have that. That is close to treason. Therefore, it is time to fire all those weather people who made the president look bad. Time to cut their funding and time to shut down the whole weather service.

See how easy it is to hide adverse data?

5. Oh yeah!
I totally forgot about Rickie's AccuWeather-influenced attempt to dismantle the NWS.
Yay.

6. Bush already tried to cut their funding
reasoning that they could get their information from The Weather Channel. I believe someone pointed out to him the inconvenient fact that The Weather Channel is, in fact, connected to the Weather Service.
