I felt that earthquake. My first thoughts was that a massive vehicle was going by.

Lately, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA-7) has wanted to reduce disaster funding.
The epicenter of this earthquake was in his district.

I lived in California (now Colorado; which had an earthquake as well)… I guess I’m used to having earthquakes of this magnitude. It’s honestly not that surprising for a Californian as it is to someone in Virginia.

Heard that the Washington National Cathedral took damage. Hopefully none of the windows broke.

Fox News is attacking Obama right now for not preventing the earthquake, or knowing it would happen.

Woa, wait, WHAT!?! Blaming one person for not preventing an Earthquake?

IT’S an EARTH QUAKE! Even a monkey could figure out nobody can stop it! It’s like saying the Japanese government could have gone and stop the tsunami that hit them!

“Hey guys, an earthquake hit.”
“LET’S BLAME SOMEONE!”

Oh Fox, when will you ever gain intelligence?

Haiti gets earthquake, the entire country is rubble.
Japan gets huge earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown.
America gets two earthquakes within 24 hours of each other, nothing happens.
I swear, God must be laughing his ass off right now. Especially if Fox News is stupid enough to blame anyone, let alone the president, for a fucking earthquake. Morons.

Fox secretly has a Dart-Board-o’-Blame™.
Or maybe they play a game of “Pin the blame on the Democrat”?
Seriously, even geologists can’t predict earthquakes reliably yet.

Well when you have hyper-religious ultra-conservatives who literally think that the entire democratic party has occult ties, its not that much of a reach to think that they might actually blame a democrat for a natural disaster. Obama probably brought it on by sacrificing an albino gazelle at the blood alter in Bohemian Grove.

I still remember the first (and last) time I watched Faux News. They had a shark “expert” discuss how democrats can smell blood and prey on the weak.

A lot of major countries are getting hit by earthquakes lately. I think our 2012 timer is giving us the year and a half warning! xD

It’s not much of a secret; I’m pretty sure it looks something like this:
