That's Irony For Ya
So, we have Hurricane John threatening Mexico, while Hurricane Ernesto (since downgraded...ALOT) threatened Florida.If common sense ruled the world, Hurrican Juan would threaten Mexico, and Hurricane Ernest (since downgraded...ALOT) would have threatened Florida. Of course, if common sense ruled the world, the media would stop obsessing over the latest chance to blame Bush for a natural disaster and start obsessing over the latest chance to blame Bush for a man-made one in the making. The media is now also in hyperventilation mode over the Katrina anniversary. What will they have to say when an American city can't be rebuilt due to the half-life of U-235 (700 million years), or Plutonium?

If a dude who confesses to killing a 9 year old can wipe the war in Lebanon off the front pages, an anniversary where only the most corrupt city in America is the last and slowest to recover, will not garner attention past tomorrow.
Bush made sure Nagin stayed in power. Because if anyone else in power would do things the right way and totally screw up his plans to sink the city and leave all them po folks left behind.

Isn't it Bush's fault unless proven otherwise? And in those cases you just report NOTHING?
Isn't that how it goes?
