The Depths of Chickenhawk Stupidity

Hark! I have monumental news.

The Bush Administration has done something right....kinda...sort of...not really.

Secretary Chertoff has finally fired the criminally incompetent Chief of FEMA: Michael Brown.

This would be better news if it weren't for the fact that this didn't happen until almost two weeks after the levees broke. The only smart thing Dubya could have done (unlikely, isn't it?) is to have never hired Brown in the first place. But it's too late for that now. Dubya values political loyalty more than competence, and the lives of his citizens be damned.

However, Brown was by no means the only source of incompetence in the Administration's response to Katrina. In fact, of the many Administration incompetents, the worst of them all is the Big Kahuna: Dubya "Dumbass" Bush himself. I present to you this new information from the New York Times that reveals the utter depths of stupidity prevalent on all levels of the Chickenhawk Brigade.

Apparently, according to the Times, Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco asked the President for Federal troops as early as last Monday. By Wednesday, Blanco had increased her request to 40,000 troops.

However, the first Federal troops didn't arrive on the scene until five days after the levees broke.

But that's not even the worst of it. A 7,200 man rapid-response team from the 82nd Airborne Division was ready to deployed from Fort Bragg, N.C., on Sunday morning, almost a day before Katrina hit. This team could have been on the ground in New Orleans within 18 hours. However, thanks to Chickenhawk Incompetence at the highest levels, they didn't arrive in New Orleans until five days after the levees broke.

Incompetence on this level is inexcusable. Regime Changes needs to take place now.

On a lighter note, Dick Cheney, known around the world for his tender love and compassion for all downtrodden peoples, was given a warm reception by the natives of New Orleans. For a laugh, you can view the clip here at Crooks and Liars.

Finally, I would like to finish up today's entry with a topic unrelated to Hurricane Katrina: The Religious Right. Specifically, their rabid hatred of homosexuals. I found this interesting website that presents a side-by-side comparison of contemporary Batshit Crazy anti-gay rhetoric with 1930's Nazi anti-Jew rhetoric.

Eerily similar. Surely, it must be a coincidence....right?

I think we all know the answer to that question: hate is hate, no matter who it comes from. There is no difference between 1930's anti-Semitism in Germany, and modern-day gay-bashing in the "Free World".

Hate is just as ugly, no matter who is spewing it.

Comments:
Don't forget that Cheney is also known for having a heart that is as weak as our economy!!! SNAP!
 
ZING!
 
I used that line during my "I dont care about the election" speach I gave Boris back in November. You should read it, I still have the transcript. And you might like it because it was the most political I have ever been.
