When discussing the recent tsunami in Japan, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh spoke with a caller who asked, "If these are the people that invented the Prius, have mastered public transportation, recycling, why did Mother Earth, Gaia if you will, hit them with this disaster?."
"Interesting question!" And with absolutely no overt logical fallacies!
Rush, of course, shows the situation the sympathy it deserves…
"He's right," Limbaugh said. "They've given us the Prius. Even now, refugees are recycling their garbage." Here, he began to laugh, continuing, "and yet, Gaia levels them! Just wipes them out!"
Apparently for Rush, a tsunami that kills thousands and razes entire cities is worth a chuckle, so long as the wave takes out a Prius plant in the process. At least he didn’t make an ill-timed Godzilla joke. Wait, I spoke too soon.
