On his Tuesday radio show, Rush Limbaugh said members of the Democratic Party hope that now-Hurricane Isaac strikes New Orleans. “It’s the Democrats’ wet dream that this thing hit New Orleans,” said Limbaugh.

Limbaugh suggested that the Republican Party show compassion for its own electoral advantage.

“The first thing we do is offer to send 500 bus drivers to New Orleans, paid for by us to make sure that the buses that were not used by the Democrat mayor during Hurricane Katrina will be used to evacuate people should it become necessary,” Limbaugh said. “The second thing I think Republicans ought to do is send bags of money instead of sand — bags full of money to shore up the levies in New Orleans. This would accomplish many things, a — it would show our compassion, b — we could have Romney’s five sons, who CNN asked last night ‘what’s it like to be rich as sin,’ or whatever.”

“So we have Romney’s five sons to deliver the bags of money to shore up the levies,” he continued. “Now, this won’t accomplish much, it will show our compassion and it’ll do something else. Once we publicize that we sent 500 bags of money, or whatever number bags — bags of money to shore up the levies, what’ll happen? The poor of New Orleans will storm the levies and steal the bags, thereby putting themselves at risk for the eventual flooding that will happen once they remove the bags of money and that way Republicans can get rid of even more Democrats in Louisiana and shore up the state for themselves.”
