While New Orleans Drowned Brownie Primped
In my September 13 post Katrina Refugees Must Demand Right of Return Now! I linked to a cartoon with the caption "Genocide by depraved indifference" and while the "G" word may not be fully appropriate in discussions of Katrina, "depraved indifference" sure fits the bill. Can you believe these guys? I find myself almost incapapable of forming a response to the emails that surfaced yesterday that detail how, while Katrina bore down on New Orleans and water spread murderously through this historic American city, consuming lives, property and invaluable history, Michael "Heck of a Job" Brown was worried about his appearance and asking could he quit. Here's Brownie e-mailing his spokeswoman Sharon Worthy, days before Katrina crashed into Louisiana and Mississippi: "Tie or not for tonight? Button-down blue shirt?"
Here's a bit more from the Howard Kurtz piece..."Days later, after Brownie was reckless enough to appear alongside Bush in a long-sleeved white shirt, came this urgent advice from Worthy: "Please roll up the sleeves of your shirt, all shirts. Even the president rolled his sleeves to just below the elbow. In this [crisis] and on TV you just need to look more hard-working."
What the f*&$! Its withering the amount of pure evil that keeps pouring from this administration. I think I'm going to throw up.
