How Do We Blame Bush?

The power is off in New Orleans! Water in the streets! The Mayor is losing patience!

Can you imagine what the news reporting would be like if there was a Republican President? For some amazing reason, this time around it is a local and state effort to deal with the aftermath of the hurricane. The best the Times-Picyaune could come up with was a mildly derogatory editorial about Gov. Bobby Jindal, who, amazingly enough, is a Republican. Sure, he stayed home and didn’t attend the convention. Sure, he did as good a job as could be expected dealing with the storm. So, let’s call him a dog and congratulate him for not getting up on his hind legs in Tampa.

Is there any news organization that isn’t drinking the kool-aid?
