Commentary: Limbaugh, Robertson offer scorn to suffering Haiti

If Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh had just kept their mouths shut, Harry Reid's comments in 2008 might still be scaling this week's meter for eyebrow-raising, racially tinged comments from public figures. But it only took a devastating tragedy of epic proportions for Rush and the Rev. Pat to knock him off. Who knew that untold thousands of deaths from a massive 7.0-magnitude earthquake in Haiti, a poor country already wracked with misery, would spawn scorn and outlandish claims of God's retribution instead of compassion and concern? But in Limbaugh's and Robertson's worlds that's apparently what it should do.
