It's my assumption that the vast majority of the Tea party are religious Christians. This may be wrong, but I doubt it. If so then, by their very own religious convictions, it would stand to reason that the recent disasters suffered in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana and the rest of the South and mid-west - right in the heart of Tea Party country - are nothing less than God's punishment for the Tea Party. God does not like stupid. God does not like greed. God does not like TPs wiping the asses of the wealthy! Floods and tornadoes would be God's way of punishing, now wouldn't it?
