Michele Bachmann: Earthquake and hurricane were calls from God

The St. Petersburg Times reports that Rep. Michele Bachmann was in Florida over the weekend. There, she suggested that the weird weather week -- including an earthquake and a hurricane -- were calls from God to America's politicians.
"I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?' Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending."
Let's give credit to the reporter who covered her appearance in Florida. There was no hyping her comment; it was not made the focus of the story. Instead it was reported in proper context in relation to the rest of the story.
