Approximately 2 million people live in the capital of Haiti and the surrounding areas where the earthquake struck. The American Red Cross is now estimating that 3 million people are affected by the disaster. Current reports from Haiti tell of terrible destruction, widespread chaos, and overcrowded hospitals. Preliminary reports are estimating the death toll could be as high as 50,000.
Former Republican Presidential candidate, Rev Pat Robertson says the earthquake is God's punishment on Haiti because of some "pact with the devil" Haitians made at the time of Napoleon III. America's moral compass (and occasional drug addict), Rush Limbaugh, saw the devastation and death in Haiti this way:
This will play right into Obama's hands. He's humanitarian, compassionate. They'll use this to burnish their, shall we say, "credibility" with the black community--in the both light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country. It's made-to-order for them. That's why he couldn't wait to get out there, could not wait to get out there.
Thankfully neither of these cartoonish boobs represent actual people in America.
