The Bush Administration is yet again attacking Democratic Governor Kathleen Sebelius, this time claiming that she was negligent and absent during the recent tornado disaster in Kansas because - oh, wait for it - irony like this only comes once a millenia - she was attending a jazz concert in New Orleans.
Bush administration officials, stung by complaints from Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius that National Guard heavy equipment needed by tornado-stricken Greensburg, Kan., is in Iraq, are putting out word that she was two days late at the disaster scene because she was attending a jazz festival in New Orleans.
Are you shitting me?
Just when you think you're completely plum run out of outrage. My god. The fucking B.A.L.L.S of these people.
Hey doesn't anyone one of you right-wing super-Geniuses remember this?
Or how about this?
Which was happening about the same time as this...
And y'know what the real kicker is? The White House's claims about Governor Sebelius aren't even f-ing true!
Yes, Sebelius was in New Orleans with her family when the tornado hit that Friday evening. But she was notified that night about the tornado, and she and her staff in Kansas immediately began trying to assess the damage. When the scope of the disaster became clear, they began making arrangements for her return.
Sebelius didn’t attend any of the jazz festival and left her family in New Orleans, flying back Saturday afternoon using a plane arranged by Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco.
One day. It took ONE DAY for Sebelius to cancel her plans and head back home to address the situation.
Days before Katrina hit the Gulf Coast President Bush was specifically told that there was grave danger to the levees, yet days afterward he still had the temerity to claim "I don't think anyone anticipated the breech of the levees."
And now this?
I didn't think I could be shocked by this Administration after the torture and the warrantless wire taps, politicizing the Justice Dept, racial discrimination at the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ, the bodies piling up in Baghdad and Walter Reed.
I was wrong. Dead wrong.
