Hurricane Blame

Just because is a 600-mile wide natural disaster that's been happening for eons without human internvention, their's no reason we can't blame hurricanes on the neo-cons.

The Germans think you can lay the blame on Bush. Maybe they'll only fire up one oven this time.

Blogs for Bush catches some more Bush-bashing at NRO. I'm sure Americablog will find a way to "out" another gay Republican and place the blame on him.

DUmmies are celebrating the demise of Trent Lott's house.

And when there is something stupid to be said, there is always a Kennedy around.

Now we're just waiting to hear Cindy Sheehan explain that we shouldn't mount a rescue effort, because saving brown-skinned peoples (including those in New Orleans, Mississippi, and Alabama) aren't worth risking the lives of "even one more soldier." The media, of course, will edit her comment down to blame Bush for global warming.

And the band played on...

Let Me get this straight. According to RFK Jr President Bush is to blame for an act of nature like katrina, but His uncle Teddy won't even take the blame for killing Mary Jo Kopecne? THese people are pathetic!!!!!!

All that energy you spent cutting and pasting someone else's work, seenthelight, should have been channeled know... finding out if it was accurate.

Isn't your "paper of record" the NY Times?:

"Shea Penland, director of the Pontchartrain Institute for Environmental Studies at the University of New Orleans, said that was particularly surprising because the break was "along a section that was just upgraded."

The Chicago Tribune makes it even clearer:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Thursday that a lack of funding for hurricane-protection projects around New Orleans did not contribute to the disastrous flooding that followed Hurricane Katrina. In a telephone interview with reporters, corps officials said that although portions of the flood-protection levees remain incomplete, the levees near Lake Pontchartrain that gave way--inundating much of the city--were completed and in good condition before the hurricane.

Once again, a perfectly good liberal argument is destroyed by it's natural enemy... facts.
