The ongoing “Wallow Fire” in Arizona is already the largest in state history. John McCain has claimed that the fire was started by undocumented immigrants. Why not? It is worth more political points than carbon emissions. (The U.S. Forest Service said there is no evidence that immigrants had anything to do with the fires).
In related news, Sarah Palin blamed the Arizona fires on Obama, telling Arizonans living near the fire not to retreat, but to reload. However, her daughter Bristol blamed Cindy McCain and her daughter Meghan, who she believes set the fires for the insurance money (so they could purchase more Louis Vuitton luggage). Glenn Beck blamed the fires on gay teachers who he claimed set the fires in order to distract the public from the homosexual agenda they were pushing in Arizona classrooms. Mel Gibson blamed Oksana Grigorieva, who he called a bitch in heat (the heat being the source of the fire). Benjamin Netanyahu blamed the fires on Hamas rockets launched indiscriminately into Israel, while Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the fires never happened. Obama said that we just need to move forward and that he was willing to work with both sides to get there.
