They were comparing golf scores and talking about how much more money they are going to steal from taxpayers.

It’s an actual photo published in our local paper this morning, depicting the “storm damage.” There were others much worse, but the lighting in those gave the impression of late afternoon. I strongly suspect those were taken during last Wednesday’s thunder storm here, which was more severe than Irene’s gentle soaking day long rain.

Hurricane Irene We’re Going STREAKING!!!
TMZ ^ | August 28, 2011

A live report on The Weather Channel today about Hurricane Irene got a few unexpected guests in the form of a bunch of guys in bathing suits ... one of whom lost his shorts and bared it all on camera.

“Trying to figure out how to spin the now tropical storm back into a full up national catastrophe. What a crock of crap.”

Actually, he’s probably disappointed that it will be off the front page in a day or two, but glad it was big enough so that it can be used to take blame for the economy, which buys another month or two of excuses...

Again it looks like media misinformation. It’s like get us something horrific even though nothing really happened. I don’t believe anything I see in the media and nothing that I read - as Mark Twain wrote “If you don’t read the newspapers you are uninformed. If you do, you are misinformed”
