Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, June 16, 2014

A small town was devastated Monday afternoon when two tornadoes touched down simultaneously in northeast Nebraska, killing one person, critically injuring at least 16 more people and sending rescue crews scrambling to dig for others who might be buried under the rubble. At least one of the tornadoes slammed into the town of Pilger, a community of about 350 people 75 miles northwest of Omaha. Meteorologist Bill Karins of MSNBC said he's never heard of a twin tornado like this system occurring in the U.S.

I blame Obama's weakness. Storms just don't fear us any more.

"One city, Pilger, has been closed to all but emergency personnel, the state's emergency management agency said Monday night."

Look it's your guns, keeping you free.

So anyhoo, the double tornadoes that hit Pilger were very rare, in that they were of equal strength & lasted so long (in dual twisters, usually one is much weaker & grows weaker as the other gains strength). i hate that a young child was the fatality.

i was watching monster thunderstorms via radar in Iowa & Wisconsin last night, hoping those in their path would be spared the funnel clouds.

Time for Algore to fire up the jumbo jet and give another sermon on global warming.

No, no, no, it's not global warming;

It's just a flesh wound...

"It's the fault of guns, sno."

pretty clever how he slipped that right into your craw, eh?

I think I missed that part where he BLAMED guns though.

I did see Obama get his daily dose of blame (all in good fun of course!) along with our favorite climate whipping boy Al Gore.

No problems with that Snippy?

Just don't dare mention guns. Even in jest.

Got it.
