Who Can Be A Bigger Dick?

Pat Robertson set the bar pretty, pretty low with his "deal with the devil" bloviation. Let's see who will challenge Pat for the title of biggest dick (Haiti edition).

First Up: Debbie Schlussel.

It’s good that Barack Obama finally commented on the suffering of the people of Haiti and dispatched American help. Yes, morally we should help them because it’s the right thing to do. But strategically, we must help them because if we don’t, we’ll soon find Obama welcoming thousands more Haitian refugees to our shores and entitlement roles.

Wow! Debbie took a look at the news footage of the tragedy in Haiti and immediately thought: "Oh, God! They're gonna start coming here!" That's your concern? That more of "those people" will come to America? And that is the main reason for providing help to the victims? Pretty dickish, Deb!

Who's next?

Rush Limbaugh:

Yes, I think in the Haiti earthquake, ladies and gentlemen -- in the words of Rahm Emanuel, we have another crisis simply too good to waste. This will play right into Obama's hands -- 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 'em. That's why he couldn't wait to get out there. Could not wait to get out there.

That place, Haiti, has been run by dictators and communists. And how long is it gonna be, how long is it gonna be before we hear Obama and the left in this country say that what we really need to do is reinstate the communist Aristide to the leadership position down there to coordinate putting the country back together?

Damn! Rush saw the calamity unfolding and thought "Hey! I can use this to score some points against Obama!" What a dick!

Who else? Anyone from that bastion of dickishness, the Heritage Foundation?
Why, here's Heritage member Jim Roberts now:

The U.S. government response should be bold and decisive. . . President Obama should also reach out to a senior Republican figure, perhaps former President George W. Bush, to lead the bipartisan effort for the Republicans.

While on the ground in Haiti, the U.S. military can also interrupt the nightly flights of cocaine to Haiti and the Dominican Republic from the Venezuelan coast and counter the ongoing efforts of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to destabilize the island of Hispaniola.

The U.S. should implement a strong and vigorous public diplomacy effort to counter the negative propaganda certain to emanate from the Castro-Chavez camp. Such an effort will also demonstrate that the U.S.’s involvement in the Caribbean remains a powerful force for good in the Americas and around the globe.

Oh, my God! So this tool saw the disaster and thought a) "This could help George W. Bush rehabilitate his image!" and b) "This could be a great opportunity to advance noeconservative foreign policy objectives!" Wow, the daily double of being a dick!

I think we have a winner, I'm just not sure who.
