I guess this is the kinda thing that many in the teabagger rabble fervently wish for President Obama and the Democratic Congress:
Polish President Lech Kaczynski and some of the country’s highest military and civilian leaders died on Saturday when the presidential plane crashed as it came in for a landing in thick fog in western Russia, killing 96, officials said.
Russian and Polish officials said there were no survivors on the 26-year-old Tupolev, which was taking the president, his wife and staff to events marking the 70th anniversary of the massacre of thousands of Polish officers by Soviet secret police.
The crash devastated the upper echelons of Poland’s political and military establishments. On board were the army chief of staff, national bank president, deputy foreign minister, army chaplain, head of the National Security Office, deputy parliament speaker, civil rights commissioner and at least two presidential aides and three lawmakers, the Polish foreign ministry said.
It’s not hard to imagine the Pat Robertson types celebrating such a tragedy as a vengeful act of God. I wonder if the Polish opposition is as twisted politically as ours is here in the U.S., or if democracy is still so novel and cherished to them that they honor it even in losing?
