For a group that seems to think conservatives are the anti-science party for questioning man-made climate change, liberals certainly seem to think karma controls the weather. As a handful of tornadoes touched down in the South today, including one in Adairsville, Ga., that did significant damage, some people’s thoughts turned not to the victims but to recent votes on Capitol Hill.

Members of the House GOP, and Rep. Paul Ryan in particular, took a public relations beating when they voted against the pork-filled aid package, and on Monday, 36 senators voted no on a $51 billion aid package. Memories of that vote were fresh on quite a few people’s minds.

A tornado hit Georgia. Sen. Saxby Chambliss voted no for Sandy relief, so no relief for them. F**k them, let then suffer! #tcot

Reckon all those southerners who voted against Sandy aid will be crying for help with tornado damage.

After the tornado GOP politicians started praying again. After #Sandy we know that that actually means that they’re not willing to help you.

Not everyone thought of Washington first, though.
With everyone I know up in Adairsville, wondering what they are going through, makes me want to go help them in any way possible. #Praying

We may be a small community, but Adairsville always finds a way to overcome big tragedies. And this one is not going to change that.
