I think it’s in the wingnut bylaws…

…that every 6 months or so you call the people of New Orleans stupid and corrupt. Said post should include the obligatory link to Dolinar’s year old article. Said link is cited to replace horrible images seen by your lying eyes with the real Katrina Kulprit– the media which flooded NOLA and killed a gazillion people. Let the record show Instaputz has met his obligation forthwith…

CAN SCIENCEOUTWIT STORMS LIKE KATRINA? Sure. But it can’t do much about human corruption and stupidity, which alas were the real problems. Though as Lou Dolinar demonstrated, many aspects of the Katrina response went better than reported. The
media response, however, as Dolinar also demonstrated, was not one of
those, and in fact probably cost lives.

I wish these people would come up with some new material.

    Don’t know how much mileage you could get out of this, but **YES** the problem is corruption and stupidity. Such as massive no-bid contracts for Shrub cronies for pumps that don’t work. Attempts to “fix” the levees by withdrawing funding for the Corps so they can’t do a good job. (I thought the Army could do anything if we just got out of their way – but the WH keeps putting up roadblocks)…

    Silly MapleStreet. The only corruption that counts is DEMOCRATIC corruption.
    Seriously, if you took away the toy that is their tendency to blame poor people for their poverty, the oppressed for their oppression and victims for the crimes of the perpetrators these people’s conversations would be reduced to the occasional “oogh” and staring blankly at each other.

    Recently I saw the “FEMA Gold’n Ticket” up on one of the bulletin boards at work. You bet I ripped that thing down the second I saw that piece of racist, classist crap.
