The principle that idiocy knows no national boundaries was again confirmed in the reactions to the tragedy caused by Japan's earthquake -- in Korea, idiots on the Internet celebrated Japan's earthquake, and in America, some idiots on the Internet thought Japan was getting its payback for Pearl Harbor attacks.

But the king of all idiots in this parade is Tokyo's Governor Shintaro Ishihara, who said the earthquake was a "divine retribution" for Japan's politics. Let's see if the bar can get any lower.
