GOPUSA says its mission is to bring "the conservative message to America." If the site's top news today is any indication, the "conservative message" today is this: Looters have run amok in New Orleans.
We'd think there are all sorts of angles one might take on the hurricane. How many people have died? When will people be allowed to go home? Did government ineptness make matters worse? How can the people of the world help?
But if you're GOPUSA -- the folks who brought us Jeff Gannon and Talon News -- the central fact of the hurricane is that people are "breaking into stores and making off with anything and everything they could get their hands on -- and not just food for survival." And GOPUSA isn't alone: On Fox News last night, Sean Hannity said that "these images of looting" -- in heavy rotation on his own network -- "have literally shocked the nation." Not to be outdone, one of Hannity's colleagues asked a legal expert on the air yesterday whether it would be OK if the law-abiding citizens of New Orleans started shooting looters.
