Yeah, "THEY CARE", Allright

If you truly want to see the difference between "Progressive" and "Conservative" blogs, go read this comparison post of blogs over at The Politburo Diktat

The truly sad thing is, most "Progressives" won't see anything wrong in using a disaster encompassing such human misery to express their political feelings about the hated "BushCheneyHitlerHaliburtonOligarcy™". Any opportunity to play "Bash the President™" can not be missed, it seems.

There is enough blame to go around on ALL sectors of government in this disaster, but now is NOT the time to sort it all out. It's time for the American people to do what they do best, roll up their sleeves and set about cleaning up the mess. There will be time enough for recriminations after the job is done.

update: Heres a response to The Commisars post:

"Put up or shut the F up. WE’VE raised over $100,000 for hurricane relief, scumbag. What have you losers raised?"

To which The Commisar deliciously responds:

"At this writing the Righties have contributed $413,000 and the Lefties (even with Kos’ mega-traffic) have contributed $117,000."

I applaud ALL who have given, and continue to give, and I'm not particularly interested in "who gave more" in and of itself, but I must point out that the results so far have proven the Commisars point about rhetoric vs action...

UPDATE: Here is a picture courtesy of The Rott, that I think exemplifies the "Party of Caring (for the little guy)" well. They're great on rhetoric, but always seem to come up short on meaningful RESULTS.

Donating to a cause such as hurricane relief should not be politicized by what political party the donators belong to.

In the absract, I agree with you Hobbit; it matters not one whit the political leanings of the donors. But having said that, You have to follow the thread in the link to see why this was done. A left leaning commenter TRIED to assert that he belonged to the party that cares, and that those of us on the other side were heartless, and "blaming the victom" for their plight

The Left has no agenda other than trying to bash Bush and his party, the comparison was only to show the hollowness of that rhetoric.

For too long, the conservative/libertarian side of the aisle has endured constant villification, mistruths,and outright slander from the other side without response, and it's time the record was set straight.

delftsman, I've had it with left-wing blogs. Nothing matters to them except power. "Compassion" isn't given for its own sake, but because it is a means to get more power. On one left-wing blog, the whole subject of discussion was to attack Condi Rice because she went shopping for shoes during the crisis. When I pointed out the utter silliness of that attack, I was called names and berated myself. People on the left are sick, sick, sick: and, I'm sick of dealing with them. I promise that I will NEVER, NEVER post on one of their sites again. Let them stay stupid and stay immersed in their own bile.
