  •  There shouldn't be any necessity (none)
    for getting into a pissing contest with the rightwingers about who shares the greater blame for any particular aspect of the disaster in New Orleans.  Keep the focus on the big picture, rather than permit bu$hco to zero in on isolated screw-ups of the numerous players who at one time or another might have made a decision related to the New Orleans disaster.  For nearly four years, we have been told ad nauseum by Hannity, O'Reilly, et al, that "9/11 changed everything", that we had to sacrifice civil rights at the altar of the Patriot Act to preserve our way of life(!), and that shrub was the one individual who, more than any other living creature, can be counted on to protect the American people in times of crisis.  

    Well, alright.  Georgie, did you do it?  Did you protect us?  I really don't give a damn about anything the Governor of Louisiana or the Mayor of New Orleans may have done or failed to do.  You, Sir George, are the one who promised to keep the American people safe -- and somehow, four years later, as I contemplate what has gone on in New Orleans, I don't feel any safer!
