The Democrat 9/11
I heard somebody on the radio say that Hurricane Katrina could be the Democrat 9/11. I then started thinking that the person who said this might be right. I decided to go ahead and put myself into the Democrat frame of mind (I robbed a rich person, kept %60 and redistributed the rest amongst poor people on the condition that they wouldn’t save any of it.) and tried to figure the best way to spin it into a 9/11.
I first thought Democrats blame Bush for not seeing the signs of 9/11 and preventing it. I can see a direct comparison with Mayor Nagen of New Orleans and Governor Blanco of Louisiana. Why couldn’t they just connect the dots and keep the citizens safe from such a horrible disaster? There was plenty of intelligence showing that the attack was inevitable. I think there was even a time frame, for the ruthless attack. Maybe if the National Weather Service didn’t have to go through all the red tape to speak to the Mayor or Governor things would have been better. I suggest they have a dedicated radio station that alerts you in case of disastrous weather. The mayor and Governor could have a radio in their office just in case bad weather is coming.
Next thing Democrats would have to do is keep an accurate body count to blame on the Governor and Mayor. It wouldn’t do anybody justice to not remind them that their incompetence caused the death of people. Dems will have to set milestones like 1000 people so that way the news can keep score. When that milestone is reached make sure everyone says “More than 1000 people died because of the decisions made by Nagen and Blanco…” It has to be worked into every speech.
Of course we’ll need to set up a memorial for the dead, but instead of showing the heroics of the people that came to save the stranded, it will have to be the politically correct. It will depict police officers of all races throwing dice at Las Vegas, people of all nationalities looting from stores, and buses of all colors flooded in a parking lot.
I think this is a good start for the Dems making Katrina into a 9/11. Good luck to them. I’ll support them on anything that will get more (anybody but Democrat) people elected.
