Bush Fails To Prevent East Coast Blizzard Minorities Hit Hardest
by Brion Willams NBC 02/12/06

As President Bush and his staff cowered in the White House, the snow continued to pile up on the many poor and African American victims who could not afford to get out of town or to safety in Florida. Crucial supplies of blankets, hot cocoa, popcorn and dark rum - so essential to surviving the stress of any major snowstorm - lay in stores undelivered.
"Where is the government? I need my sidewalk shoveled so I can get out to buy my damn lottery tickets!" said one D.C. resident from his living room.
"Why are we wasting money in Iraq when we could be spending it here on me?"
Progressive blogs blasted the President for his inaction. "We find the timing terribly suspicious - just as the Domestic Spying hearings kick into high gear, what happens? A major northeast Blizzard. Why now?" wrote blogger FUAmericaNBush2.
Hearings into the Blizzards' effect on hearings are almost a certainty.
Howard Dean has suggested he will call for an investigation once his new medications kick in
And John Kerry took a break from the sporting
activities of the glamorous super-rich in some exotic locale (random choice: Ice Sailing in Finland) to call for new legislation outlawing snowstorms. "The
Republican Congress has dropped the ball once again. I have always been a staunch supporter of anti-snow legislation, except for certain locations where I ski. Snow has no business on our roads and the President and Congress knows that."
Calls for impeachment over "SnowGate" as some are calling it already are mounting as deeply as the snow itself, and what will be discovered underneath will prove to have a truly chilling effect on the Republicans, as the inevitable thaw proceeds.

Or something like that.

More breaking news......
Al Sharpton wants an investigation as to why snow is ALWAYS white.

Cheney has stock in Tru-Value Hardware.
Do you have any idea how many SNOW SHOVELS they sold today to the unsuspecting consumer?

I demand to know why FEMA has been so late in reacting to this storm. THEY KNEW IT WAS COMING! And yet they failed to have crews in place to fix the electricity as soon as it went off. It just shows that Bush and the Republicans just don't care about the people in the N.E. The Senate needs to investigate this with administration people under oath.

I'll bet that the great junior senator from N.Y. has opened the doors of her home to all of the heatless poor of her neighborhood and is busy baking cookies for them while her husband applies body heat to the nearly frozen teen-aged girls.

Are you surprised that Bush failed to ask anything?

It takes some reasonable intelligence to know what to ask ...

Still, for a DWI-getting-cocane-using-busin ess-bankrupting alcholic draft-dodger, he's doing pretty good.

Considering the physical state of his brain after all that ...

Bush is likely to be mentioned in the Guiness Book of Records for the man that screwed the most up in just one lifetime.

I'm not American, so I don't know if a president can be impeached for incompetence.

I pray for the American people that they survive the disaster called Bush.

I just read there on the ethernet that the assistant president cheney had a hart tack after her heard that Mr. Willingham got shot thru the hart. I hope he gets along fine even with all the sport he made of that guy suffering in the intense care wards. I wish him well even tho he is a liberal bleeding NRA evangelist. He probably didn't really mean to shoot that lawyer guy. Maybe it is just the stress because I know he said he felt bad when the guy keeled over when the buckshot took him broadside. They tell me they could hear him scream clean back at the barn.Anyways, I hope they both get out soon so they can start fixing those poor folks down there in Louisitania.That FEMUR and Farmland Security people ain't done nothing yet for the black folks and I, for one old white redneck, don't like it a bit. They could take them trailer houses down there and at least place rooves over there heads. That's just my opinion.

I am always amazed by the ability of the media to prey on simpleminded people. Here it is clear that the media is trying to create something out of nothing (new at least). I live over a thousand miles away from New Orleans and I knew that much of the city would be twenty feet under water, everyone knew this. What I’m really afraid of is that while the media is having such a great time no one is at all concerned with what really should have been done to prevent the loss of life.

I love the way you think Bob. That guy has to be the smartest crack-head in America.
