When The Levee Breaks
It appears that the money has been moved in the president's budget to handle homeland security and the war in Iraq, and I suppose that's the price we pay. Nobody locally is happy that the levees can't be finished, and we are doing everything we can to make the case that this is a security issue for us. -- Walter Maestri, Jefferson Parish emergency management chief, June 8, 2004
After diverting billions of domestic dollars to his little misadventure in the Persian Gulf, there are bodies floating in the streets of New Orleans. This should put an end to any 'fighting over there to save lives over here' nonsense, in the event that the London bombings didn't already.
Worst. President. Ever.
Addendum - actually, it seems all this was in fact gay people's fault. Or perhaps it was the evil aborted fetuses. Either way, we apologize for the error.
