”Not This Time”

From Holden:

Chimpy admitted today that he turned his back on Katrina victims.

US President George W. Bush was to mark one year since Hurricane Katrina with a solemn prayer service, but got the anniversary started with a plateful of pancakes.

But local frustration was also on the menu as a waitress took Bush to task over the botched government response to the killer storm, which ravaged the US Gulf Coast and killed more than 1,500 people and nearly drowned this party city.

As Bush tried to squeeze his way through narrow spaces between tables, waitress Joyce Labruzzo asked him: “Mister President, are you going to turn your back on me?”

“No, ma’am,” Bush said, with a laugh and a pause. “Not again.”

Note: “No, ma’am,” Bush said, with a laugh and a pause. “Not again.”

It’s funny because it’s true.
