- Watch out when the mainstream media finally finds its
balls. Largely silent for the last five years, while BushCo bludgeoned
everyone and everything around him (except his cronies), our spayed
and neutered newsreporters finally have begun to take their jobs seriously.
Finally, they've begun to express their indignation with the Bushco incompetence
and corruption that's been terrorizing people for five years now. Indeed,
some newsreporters have become almost as perceptive as those on the Internet. Welcome
to the cause; better late than never.
- Witness--FINALLY--the calls for resignations from the
mainstream media, for the inept and downright criminal cronies heading
government agencies like FEMA and Homeland Security. Witness--FINALLY--some
of the most heated dialogue ever allowed to air on national television.
- Aaron Broussard's tearful rebuke to FEMA
and BushCo should have inspired the entire nation to demand the resignation
of everyone in this tawdry regime. Likewise, Keith Olbermann's primetime
dissection of Ivy-League educated (supposedly) Michael Chertoff was as
shocking as it was priceless. Chertoff, allegedly head of Homeland Security
but holding dual citizenship, asserted that "Louisiana
is a city that is largely underwater."
- Is this guy Chertoff really just an anorexic Homer Simpson?
Do Bush appointees really compete to see who can be more ignorant, more
amoral? Or is stupidity simply a job requirement?
- Is it just me, or does anyone else fear the clueless
morons leading this nation more than they fear any Muslims? Are Americans
citizens more terrorized by a few Islam fanatics, or by the incompetent
scoundrels who allegedly "lead" us? Witness all the folks "terrorized"
by a perfectly predictable natural disaster in the Gulf and the shocking
lack of response from the bumpkins in power in Washington DC. God help
any state not named Florida.
- Indeed, I think criminal charges should be brought against
both FEMA director Michael Brown and Homeland Security head, Michael Chertoff.
Resignations mean nothing more than a wrist slap. Nothing less than long
prison sentences would be fitting for those two guys.
- But of course, as friends of the President, Brown and
Chertoff will probably get medals. After all, the incompetent morons who
allowed the 9-11 attacks and the morass in Iraq
received Presidential Medals of Failure, I mean freedom.
- Jefferson Parish president, Aaron Broussard--a president
who actually gave a damn about his constituents said:
"I want to give you one last story and I,ll shut up and let you tell
me whatever you want to tell me. The guy who runs this building I,m in,
Emergency Management, he's responsible for everything. His mother was trapped
in St. Bernard nursing home and every day she called him and said, "Are
you coming, son? Is somebody coming? and he said, "Yeah, Mama, somebody's
coming to get you. Somebody's coming to get you on Tuesday. Somebody's
coming to get you on Wednesday. Somebody's coming to get you on Thursday.
Somebody's coming to get you on Friday and she drowned Friday night. She
drowned Friday night! Nobody's coming to get us. Nobody's coming to get
us. The Secretary has promised. Everybody's promised. They,ve had press
conferences. I,m sick of the press conferences. For god's sakes, just shut
up and send us somebody."
- Then Broussard burst into tears. People will not soon
forget that image, not even the mainstream media it seems.
