Is this a picture from India? Sri Lanka? Africa?

Of course, this is a picture from what is soon becoming the richest country in the third world.

Would you be a tad frustrated with the government's response if this were your mother, grandmother, sister, or daughter in the water?

Do you think you might start to lose your mind? Think you might "loot" in order to survive? Think you might wonder why we can airlift massive relief half way around the world after a tsunami, but we can't provide minimal life-saving relief to a city within our own borders?

Think you might be angry?

How would you feel if you heard all the politicians saying what a great job they were doing and how everything was going well?

Heads should roll for this. Lots of them.

Of course it isn't Iraq. The media doesn't show us pictures of dead bodies in Iraq.

Great comment DL, and if that doesn't piss you off, nothing will.

It's time for people to stand up and call bullshit on this entire disaster of an administration. I've read that even Timmy Russert, one of Bush's chief glorifiers, appeared on the tube and was visibly angry at the lack of response to this.

I only pray that the insulated media elite FINALLY snap out of it and realize that the country has been being conned for years now.

And I know it won't be pretty for Bush and all the other perpetrators. And it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of guys.

I'm sure the people of N.O. will greet the disaster monkey with flowers when he disrupts the rescue efforts by bringing his road show to town.
