I'm stunned CBS remembered that Mississippi was hit by Katrina as well.

All Katrina, all the time. Pass.

No way will I watch the media continue with their spins and lies on this story. Once was quite enough.

One would think the other shows would try to get him on too but I doubt they want to take time away from bashing Bush over Katrina.

Thanks AB, Congrats to top 3 winners last week & Good Morning to EveryOne!

Katrina all over, this sunday. Will the MSM ever admit their Mis-reporting of the incidents & lessons learned on their part? Just this morning, ShepHez Smith shamed himself again while commenting on the kidnapping incident.

I am tired of all the Katrina-hype & taking off for a bit of DIY-decorating project. Ofcourse, I will post my Media Nuggets in a while and then off for this week.

Tom Matzzie speaks like an idiot, in the few minutes that I have been listening to him.
Steve: Is race an issue in the Tennessee senatorial race?
TM: I have not been followint the races too closely, but race has become an issue in Virginia.
Steve: But Harold Ford is African-American...
TM: Blahblahblab....

You don't REALLY believe that Katrina hit Mississippi do you? Don't you know that the Cheney/Bush/Rumsfeld/Halliburton hurricane machine (patent pending) directed Katrina to only strike New Orleans.

Amazing how a storm that large could only concentrate it's destructive power on just New Orleans and leave the surrounding area completely undamaged. /s

Morning all and thanks again AB for all your hard work and providing the thread.

I can't possibly talk all day about Katrina so I dug up a few other things we might want to get into.

Let the games begin!

If you think GW got bashed over Katrina take a look at this, it's hard to imagine.

Not long ago Christopher Hitchens was a member of a panel being interviewed by HBO's Bill Maher(what Ann Coulter ever saw in him I haven't a clue). Another panel member was former womanizer and rat election loser Max Cleland (Rat,GA.) who spends his miserable hours these days trying to help John Murtha from being "swiftboated".

Anyway the show begins and rapidly turns into a Bush bashing fest with the audience chiming in as well. After enduring several "F" words and other slurs from the audience, at 8:30 into the eleven minute video provided on the malcontent blog, Chris Hitchens turns to the audience and gives the single finger salute. Priceless!! Not only does he do it once but a couple of minutes later salutes them again! Message to rat audience:"don't mess with Hitchens."

This guy is fearless and Maher seemed to realize that he and the pathetic panel had met their match.

This is must see video and you can find it at.

Please do! If this week's thread tops 300 posts I'll be amazed. At least with the topics the DBM are hoisting this weekend.

Of course, Phsstpok's preview thread let us know in advance. It's still amazing to watch the DBM try to get away with their blatant bias and propaganda.

"Y'all do your Katrina stories, this weekend I'm going to do a little light reading from a FACTUAL news source!"

I can only watch for a bit. Much cooking to do. I will, however, listen when I can for one single person to tell some truths. Who knows, it may happen.

Equally difficult to take, though I am very grateful that Steve and Olaf are free, will be the touting of the heroism and importance of "journalists" and the kindness and generosity of the "Palistinian people".

If you're talking about Chris Hitchens, Ann was probably attracted to his brilliant mind.

If you're talking about Bill Maher, Ann was probably attracted to his lack of brain matter.

Nagin says he will evac EVERYONE out of the city if Ernesto comes close to N.O.

36 hours required for mandatory order.

[Hey, Nagyy, do you have the bus drivers 'detained' somewhere? They might already be fleeing the city, Nagyy.]

Nagin says they will use buses, trains, everything to get people out of the city.

[Will Timmy show Brousseau (sp) the Crier video? Hey Timmy, if you 'lost' your copy, I've got one on disk. hehehee]

I love that Nagin is going to be TV. All the media bashing the President is going to be undone by this foot in mouth moron.

The media has spent millions to blame the President for all that went wrong in New Orleans, and then we have Nagin..............oh, I love it!

First Timmy gives Nagin the opportunity to backtrack on his remarks about the hole in the ground in New York. Now he can move on to how badly the President is doing. Nagin wants the money to come directly to New Orleans and not go through the State.

I am always amazed at the people who refer to that day as 911. If I am not mistaken I believe I heard Colin Powell use that as well.

At the heart of the fiasco in New Orleans was the underlying hatred between Nagin and BlankO and Landrieu.

BlankO dithtered and people died. That IS the bottom line with regard to Katrina.

The media may gleefully think that all this publicity is going to harm the President but I believe it means that Jindal is going to be governor of Lousiana. BlankO will be voted OUT of office.

Nagin: 'for whatever ever reason, there was a slow response' last year.

[Nagin tries to distance himself from the situation. Russert retorts about the Feds being slow to react.]

Russert points out the high crime rate in N.O. Nagin blames the lack of money. Nagin brags that the murder rate has declined from 23 one month down to 10.
