Shift...Shift...Shift...The Blame

First the poor, then the looters. After that the local officials. Now the media.

Former FEMA directory Michael Brown has said it, as quoted in the Rocky Mountain News:
No wonder people don't go into public service. This country is devouring itself, the 24-hour news cycle is numbing our ability to think for ourselves.
And Chertoff did it on Meet the Press (as quoted in the Wall Street Journal):
Well, I think if you look at what actually happened, I remember on Tuesday morning picking up newspapers, and I saw headlines, 'New Orleans Dodged The Bullet,' Because if you recall, the storm moved to the east and then continued on and appeared to pass with considerable damage but nothing worse. It was on Tuesday that the levee -- may have been overnight Monday to Tuesday -- that the levee started to break.
The unmitigated gall of these idiots! First they go so far as to call the MSM reports rumors and blame the media for too much negative reporting. Then these fucks turn around and blame the media for feeding them information that's, if anything, "too rosy".

You couldn't even make this stuff up. It's so twisted Chertoff should get a CT to see if his brain is missing. Cause it's not like the forcasters at NOAA couldn't have informed Chertoff of where Katrina was headed, fully 3-FUCKING-days before it hit. The storm didn't deviate from it's predicted track by more than 50 miles.

Pretty sad that I knew about the poor folks at the convention center before "Brownie". I'd been watching them suffer for a couple of days when I heard him tell an NPR interviewer that he wasn't aware anyone was there, much less that thousands were.
I like the "Keep your enemies closer" portion of your blog.
