How long until the Bush Administration starts blaming the media?
We know it's inevitable. When will it happen and who will it be? I predict it will happen on one of the Sunday morning shows. But who? Will Cheney be back from vacation?
It was tough to watch President Bush and the assembled politicians congratulating and applauding each other today shortly after Air Force One touched down. I guess it's a good thing that so many victims have no elecricity to operate their televisions, or homes still standing where they can watch TV. Or they might just lose their minds at the Orwellian sight of politicians pretending that they are doing a "heck of a job."
I'm sure it won't be long before the politicians start blaming the media. Yeah right, we're not covering the good news about this hurricane -- like maybe how the French Quarter needed a good scrubbing anyway, and how already overweight Americans won't be eating all that fattening food served by restaurants now under water.
