Ida Idles Over Mobile Bay

Florida Governor Charlie Crist declared a state of emergency yesterday as Tropical Storm Ida slowly approached the Panhandle, the Miami Herald reports. The storm "was downgraded... moments after Crist issued the declaration."

The poor guy can't catch a break. Not only are the lunatic teabaggers after his scalp, Mother Nature is making him look as foolish as Bobby Jindal.

After all the media hysteria, school closings, cancellations and the like, Ida "made its first landfall about 5:40 CST on Dauphin Island, with the center of the storm about 25 miles south of Mobile." The storm was described as "slow, wet, weak."

In a disturbing sign of the times, the Destin Log covered the storm by reporting on tweets, or twitters, or whatever they're called. Our favorite breathless news report:
"BushWilliams: LOL just talked to my Dad who is in Destin, FL and fairly trashed at a hurricane party. Sounds like a good time."
