This is horrendous, scout - but what I still don't understand is why neither Landrieu or Steph said anything like this AT THE TIME!? Why wouldn't they come back to Washington screaming? I know GS is not a real journalist for god sakes, but isn't he still like a human being? Why didn't he report this?

Thanks for this Scout, you are indeed PRIME stuff!!!

Well, I am wearing the right shirt today (my Ashley Morris memorial shirt), so to KKKarl, Boosh, Blammers and SeenRay I go exceptionally unladylike and bellow "FYYFF!!!" (if I was being ladylike I would merely say in a greatly annoyed tone "FYYFF!!!")

Will this get any big play on the major netwurx? 150% no chance, afterall, Hell will not freeze over, 'cause FEMA doesn't 'do' ice anymore. Hell, they let it melt last time...afterall, noone anticipated that ice would melt.

We can haz impeetchmint nao? Because I am tired of the Speech-Impediment in Chief's illegal, immoral and unAmerican 'shenanigans'!!!

Damn Pelosi - do they have your grandkids on a prison ship???? Tell Georgie and Dickie to go fuck themselves in the brig - they are doing NOONE any favors - noone but the big oil. And I am way past tired of being financially molested at the pumps and in the grocery stores. I don't 'do' dollar menus - I like food that is healthy for me...so I don't have to worry about going to the doctor and have to be hosed there, too by my insurance not covering me.

It's Friday, this is (was) America dammit - I should be able to be laughing at cute kitten pics and enjoying my morning coffee, not ranting like a fiend.

(to quote the fab Athenae) Jesus tits!!!!

What HASN'T this Admuddlestration done that wasn't just a slick marketing campaign? Does anyone really think that Monkey Boy and his cabal of criminals would have been able to sell this country on the Messopotamia clusterf*ck without wrapping it in pretty bows and flowers? HELL no! Just as marketing directors do, they wrap their bullshit in pretty packaging, knowing full well the product inside SUCKS.

George Stephanopolos should be horse whipped for not reporting this. Goddamn.

Senator Landrieu was so saddened and disgusted by this display of pure evil that she continued to vote with the GOP on almost every issue that she had a chance to vote on. She doesn't come through this looking like a hero either.

this has been the photo op preznit. shit. remember georgee's speech in front of that church with his fucked up buttons? new orleans had power for the duration of the speech. that's it.

fuck him.

After reading this excerpt in Salon, I went to barackobama.com and suggested that he "strongly consider Kathleen Blanco" in his search for a running mate.

Too bad she would probably decline, after what she's been through.

Scout, email this to Olberman, if anyone will tough this, he will.

how about kathleen blanco in charge of FEMA?

well, that is, to recreate FEMA now that it has been destroyed by the bush administration ...

What does it profit a . . . corporate friend of Bush? While the Supreme Court considers a corporation a person, it can't say that it has a soul.

While other countries were offering help, Bush made a photo-op and told those who wanted to help that we didn't need any help and let the area stew in its juices. Money was given late to administration-friendly corporations who made profits with little results, just like in Iraq and Afganistan. Make that aboministration.

Just like at Walter Reed, where the running of the facility was given to a corporation that broke off from Halliburton, who hired one third of the staff than was there when it was run by the military. The contract was accepted even though it was for more than another group offering full staffing had offered. And all the blame drops on an admiral who was supposed to oversee the hospital. Nothing wrong with the privatisation of public works.

As it is with a health delivery system that requires that corporations make huge profits before portioning out health care. Yes, even though you may pay for insurance, you might only get that which profits a corporation to allow you some care.

Dan Abrams would probably do it before Olberman does. Olbie is still finding new ways to kick Hillary.
