  •  They don't have to (none)
    "(the) combination (of poor infrustructure and lack of leadership) adequately explains what we are seeing in New Orleans without having to get into conspiracies about Republicans trying to kill poor black Democrats.
    You are correct.  Republicans didn't plan this to kill blacks or Democrats.  They didn't have to.  Katrina did it for them.  All the Republicans have to do is act like Republicans and let their own special brand of compassionate conservatism take its own toll.  Besides, they don't all have to actually die.  A couple million voters moved out of their home districts and into....?  Texas?  How convenient.

    •  Eliminating Democrats (none)
      If this was an attempt to eliminate Democratic voters in Louisiana, it's going to backfire resoundingly. Louisiana is not going to forget who was in charge of this country when they were left to die.
