new orleans

My god.. What a disaster.

So not only is New Orleans now 80% under water, but hordes of smiling, shirtless sons of bitches feel like the proper response is to break into stores and steal everything they can get their hands on. Thousands of people are risking their lives to try to save others, and these guys are stealing DVD players.

Where the hell is the National Guard? Oh yeah... they're in IRAQ.

Word is the president is cutting short his vacation to go back to Washington to deal with the hurricane. Americablog raises an interesting point on this. We've been led to believe that the president has all the high-tech communication equipment necessary to run the country from Crawford. He's not really "on vacation" for nearly an entire year out of five, he's working! It's "White House West." Why then, does he have to "cut short" his vacation to deal with the hurricane? It's one or the other - either he can do everything from Crawford or he can't.

Anyway, he's an asshole and we all knew that. This isn't about him.

Donate if you can.
