Hail to the Chief

Dateline Gulf Coast.

The circus is in town and all of the clowns are present. They come in the guise of hope. After 2 years they are still trying to spread the lie that the people of New Orleans can expect help from their leaders. The levees are still questionable, crime is rampant and large areas of the city remain vacant, empty, dark. Even if they wanted to, many could not move back because essential utilities have not been restored or they could not afford to insure any home that might be restored or rebuilt.

But here he comes, like flies on road-kill. dubya flies in with his entourage. Nagin smiles shakes his hand and kisses his ass, what's up with that? They are breaking ground at a cemetery (calling it a memorial service). Why does a groundbreaking at a cemetery draw special attention and how is that helping the levees? All of the jerkasses seem to have forgotten that after 2 years the city (the former population) is without any hope of impending recovery. Oh, sure, the casino's are open, the French Quarter still draws a crowd and people are eating in the cities restaurants. Those with money are still there (or have come back). Those without are still in Texas, Nebraska, Alabama and god knows where else.

On a light note, did you see the teenage beauty queen from S.C. explaining why Americans can't find the U.S. on a world map. Our educational system at it's finest and another reason for the endless stream of blonde jokes. If you haven't seen the video, go here, it is hilarious.

She must have watched a number of dubya's speeches.

If only I could access You Tube from work. Probably better I can't, I'd probably start saying stupid things to the computer as I watched the video.

well she's pretty. She doesn't have to be smart. (So what's Bush's excuse?)

Scott is on the floor rolling around laughing his ass off at that video. My jaw is on the desk.

Scott says: Our country is DOOMED if this is our future.

I can't say anything, I'm speechless.
