Today in Hysteria, from the Texas Governor

Here is part of a speech from Rick Perry, in which he expressed exasperation with the federal government's inability to recognize the gathering storm south of the Rio Grande:
Do we think about looking back to the 1930s in Europe, the South Pacific in late 1941 or even the United States in early September of 2001? There were early warning signs in all of those time frames that were ignored. Too many lives were needlessly lost.
Golly. I'm not sure how to respond to something that is so obviously lacking in common sense and basic judgment. That's like comparing a mildly earnest and innovative middle school student body president to Winston Churchill.
