3:32 pm today, says Ben Morris, Slidell Mayor:
We are still hampered by some of the most stupid, idiotic regulations by FEMA. They have turned away generators, we've heard that they've gone around seizing equipment from our contractors. If they do so, they'd better be armed because I'll be damned if I'm going to let them deprive our citizens. I'm pissed off, and tired of this horse$#@@."Okay, scratch that. FEMA is still FUBAR. Medal of Freedom on the way.
Never in our nation's history have so few done so much to fuck up so many so fast...
Norbizness also lets us know the importance of FEMA's paperwork to protect us all from interstate invasion. And that while the Rovian spin meisters attempt to lay the blame for this fiasco at the feet of female Democratic governor Kathleen Blanco (surprise!) she actually beat Republican men Haley Barbour and Bob Riley by a day in getting her paperwork in.
In other breaking news, Condi Rice is suddenly a black girl from Alabama. Who knew.
