I was just reading this thread over at The Oil Drum regarding an Interview with Mayor Nagin of NOLA and came across this:
Cheney is still on vacation in an undisclosed location.
Condi Rice was busy shopping for shoes in New York – someone got up in her face and asked her how she could shop for shoes when New Orleans is in serious trouble. Her response was to have her security people throw the woman out.
True? I’m going to be browsing around also about the head of FEMA… word is he’s a fuck-up. What a crew, eh? One screw-up after another, lie upon lie… and now this disaster of a disaster response. This is not about playing politics either. Fuck that. Don’t tell me I can’t criticize these fools for a job that they completely fucked up… a job that people’s survival depends upon.
