Katrina Aftermath: The Indictments are Being Prepped, You Punkassed LA Fucks

(or, “You ain’t Rudy by a longshot, asswipe.”)

The city of New Orleans actually had a plan, written down, to deal with situations like what just happened. As it turned out, none of the bastards responsible paid so much as lip service to the doc…if they even ever read it. But is sure as hell reads like a centerpiece of the soon to be filed subpoena that the local elected officials are sure to find a pissed off grand jury willing to issue…
Greyhawk at Mudville Gazette passed his eyes over the quite detailed document…

Scan it for about 10 minutes and you’ll see it’s a damning document insofar as city management there is concerned. Judging from recent comments by a few of the folks named as responsible in that plan they didn’t know it existed – there’s no other explanation for the absurdity of some recent statements and “demands.”

Go read Greyhawk’s take, where he also gives the Puppy Blender a friendly punch on the shoulder for being a little too “understanding” or something…. Personally? He’s evil, whack him in the ‘nads!

Katrina Aftermath: On the Ground, Media Look Like Morons (surprise, surprise!)

Via Evil Glenn, Mississippian e-mailer Elizabeth King says:

I haven’t had much chance to watch TV or read the papers, because even here in central Mississippi, there is just too doggone much to do, trying to cope with refugees and track down missing family on the Coast and wait in line for gasoline, etc., etc. But the little I have seen, especially on national TV, is weird and bizarre, with all the fingerpointing and self-righteous pontificating going on from the talking heads.

These guys and gals need to get a clue. Today’s story is not: “What went wrong and who can we blame?” — that story can wait for tomorrow. Today the story is: “What are the obstacles preventing help from arriving and what can we do to solve them?” Some of these people are reporting like they’ve never been through a natural disaster, like they have no idea of the logistical nightmares that occur when power, water, communications systems and transportation systems literally disappear overnight. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve talked to who are disgusted with much of the national TV coverage. For God’s sake, please tell them to save the finger-pointing and blame game for when the immediate disaster is over.

Katrina Aftermath: Celebrity Edition

Time Magazine just gave him their cover, calling him “the smartest man in pop music,” and Oy!, he wheeled them brains out for America to see last night on NBC:

It began, fittingly enough, with jazz from New Orleans natives Harry Connick Jr. and Wynton Marsalis.

But “A Concert for Hurricane Relief,” a heartfelt and dignified benefit aired on NBC and other networks Friday night, took an unexpected turn thanks to the outspoken rapper Kanye West. Appearing two-thirds through the program, he claimed “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” and said America is set up “to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible.”

The clip of his shit is here.

Might want to rethink the nomenclature, kids, because his shooting off like this ain’t something new, y’know? No…you dolts most likely turned a blind eye to his popoff back at Live 8:

Before his performance, rapper Kayne West said the Iraq war, the AIDS epidemic in Africa and the South Asian tsunami made him wonder, “Are all of Hitler’s dreams coming true — to only have one race left?”

See, according to the sage Kanye, AIDS was planted in Africa, just like crack was planted in the ghetto… to stop the Black Panthers.

NBC almost immediately ran for the hills:

“Tonight’s telecast was a live television event wrought with emotion. Kanye West departed from the scripted comments that were prepared for him, and his opinions in no way represent the views of the networks. It would be most unfortunate if the efforts of the artists who participated tonight and the generosity of millions of Americans who are helping those in need are overshadowed by one person’s opinion.”

As I mentioned, not knowing this guy was walking onstage with his own agenda in tow just does not cut it, kids. And because of that you fucked up the whole show.

UPDATE: Now this is frickin’ entertainment. Myers must have been losing his mind.
