"Georgie" is traveling to Minneapolis today to offer sympathy and support for the victims of the bridge collapse.
Let's compare a few FACTS:
Demographics for Minneapolis:
Median household income $37,974
Demographics for New Orleans:
Median household income $27,133
In the last days of August of 2005, Hurricane Katrina DEVISTATED an entire community in New Orleans. The 9th Ward today looks much as it did immediately following the catastrophe which was so poorly handled by this administration.
Anyone care to bet how quickly this bridge will be replaced? My money is on: less than one year. Why the quick response? Well, next year the Republican Convention will be held where? New orleans? NO! Minneapolis? YEP!
Now I admit to being a bit of a cynic. But watch the treatment of one community's disaster when compared to another. Look at the demographics. Look at the relevant fact that, even though Minnesota is a blue state, the Repugs are going to have their convention there next year.
Circumstantial? YES! Hard to ignore? YES!
