It Could Be an Interesting Day

The Curbstone Critic's inside spy at radio KSGF, code named Manuela, reports that VD(J) was interviewing the GOV BoyRunt yesterday. Even the Runt figured out that VD was an idiot and hung up on him.

The interview is supposed to play this morning. Let's see. Anyone want to make book?

As I am listening at about 6:25 I learn that VD has been talking to some of those "chocolate people".

He also is ashamed of his great grandfather Jericho. Good thing for the world that he only carries one eighth of grandpoppops genes.

Clips of these two will most certainly follow.

Come on, John... Ray Nagin said New Orleans should be a "chocolate city". Why wasn't that a stupid statement as well?

Don't think I said it wasn't. But Nagin is (a)black; and (b) was talking about a city, not people.

Nagin's an idiot. The drowned school buses alone, should've kept him from being re-elected.

No, you didn't say it wasn't a stupid statement on Nagin's part. But I don't think, for all of VDJ's faults, that *he* was making a racist statement.

But, what the hell do I know... I'm just a dumb ol' cracker.

Well, at least we can agree on one thing ... :-)

On the busses in NO ... of the 375 school busses, 75 were inoperable. Not a bad percentage if you know NO. And then they couldn't find drivers ... and chaos reigned ...

And about a dozen other reasons... excuses? no, not really... but it takes a little bit of the edge off the finger pointing by the Repugs who got their ass eaten alive for the Bush administration performance in the storms.

Just proves: You shouldn't depend on government, on ANY level, to save your ass in a disaster.

Still don't buy it, though. There had to be SOME people who could drive the operable buses. Of course, in today's litigious society, someone might've gotten hurt, and there'd be a lawsuit... which reminds me, I had an unsatisfying ham sandwich yesterday. Got Dee Wampler's number?

Time to go to work. Have a government-approved day!

Well, I agree that in a disaster, at least at first, you have to depend on your own resourses. When I lived in NO I kept a two week supply of water and food, including enough to flush the toilet. I could afford it, had the room to do it, and had the knowledge to preprepare.

But make no mistake, everyone knew if the levies broke, nothing, and do mean nothing, would help. What is amazing to me, is how much of the city evacuated. Back when I was sitting in on those meetings the guess was that 50% of the city either would not, or could not evacuate.

My point re: gov't assistance - BOTH sides dropped the ball, Federal and local. Like Boortz says... don't depend on gov't to bail you out of trouble.

Government may have dropped the ball ... but it was gawd who dropped the dime on them.

I don't think God does that. I think He just sees the earth as a spoiled petri dish, a failed experiment, and is just waiting for the day to dump it down the drain.

Gotta' autoclave that petri dish first Lib-guy.

Considering the present climate, that appears to be exactly what she is doing.
