LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT...

LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT...

Just in case you missed the amazing performance of the Republican leadership yesterday...

President George W. Bush said, "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees." Well, no one except the entire world and even Mr. Bill.

-

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice went shoe shopping on Fifth Avenue, but not before she played tennis and yukked it up at Spamalot.

-

The Viceroy in charge of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff said "We're much better prepared than we've ever been." I'm not sure if that was before or after he reminded us that September is National Preparedness Month, so be sure to stock up on duct tape.

-

The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Michael D. Brown leapt into action, mustering all the emergency disaster management skills he learned as a lawyer for the International Arabian Horse Association Legal Department (from which he was fired). His money quote: "Paula, the federal government did not even know about the Convention Center people until today."

-

The Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert said, eh, maybe we should just forget all about rebuilding New Orleans. Because it might cost money and stuff.

-

The Pentagon, headed by Donald Rumsfeld, reassured America that, yes, the Country music hoedown with Clint Black on September 11th is still on, pard'ner! And maybe we'll even break the record for the longest line dance.

-

The head of the Republican National Committee, Ken Mehlman, sent out an email stressing that now---for God's sake, people---NOW is the time when we must repeal that which is causing our country to go down the tubes: the estate tax.

-

And Vice President Dick Cheney was still on vacation.

-

Lookie lookie, Planet Earth, at the leadership of the United States of America. What amazing feats will they dazzle us with today??


If you have any cheers and jeers, this is your thread. Have a safe Labor Day weekend.

Off-color humor blog goes off-line
Saying it was vulnerable to hackers, State Rep. Daylin Leach has taken down his Web site that catalogued years' worth of his humor columns, many of them laced with references to pornography, booze and drugs.
Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a golf drivers site. It pretty much covers golf drivers related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)

Gretchen,
I read a MSNBC article about how shocked the Europeans are about the lack of planning and bad handling of the New Orleans tragedy. The Netherlands is a nation that lies below sea level, but I doubt this would ever happen in Amsterdamn. The Hurricane did not have to be so deadly and detrimental, and I'm outraged at the slow lackadaisical response.

It seems so hard to believe all this. I thought such things happened in places like where I live, India. I completely fail to understand this happening in the USA.
