What they DO say is that it is funny how a hurricane is going to be hitting New Orleans at the same time as the Republican convention, when the
Republican response to the last hurricane to hit New Orleans (Katrina) was and continues to be appalling. They find the irony of this funny because it
was the effects of Katrina which showed the Republicans for what they really were and turned the tide in this country for many against Republicans.
Really Alethia? It was the Republican's dismal response? Are you sure...
"Senators chastise La. governor over poor Katrina evacuation plans
Senators needled Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco (a Democrat) today over state evacuation plans that left sick and elderly patients in nursing homes as
Hurricane Katrina bore down on the Gulf Coast".
Or maybe this one is more appropriate?
"Which politician emerged from the mess of Katrina as the biggest bonehead involved? No, it's not Michael Brown, George W. Bush, or even the
bumbling Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco.
The clear winner is New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin (a democrat), who made every conceivable mistake during the crisis. With plenty of warning, he delayed
the evacuation order, had no drivers ready to operate the school buses that stood idle, failed to stock the Superdome with food and water, and let the
looters rampage without any interference from police".
That's right, the two biggest "losers" in the Katrina debacle were in fact Dems! But don't let a little thing like history get in the way of your
"Bush Derangement Syndrome".
