i can't believe the shit that comes out of the mouths of people who should actually think before talking.
get this amazing piece of ignorant babbling from michael brown, the director of the federal emergency management agency (fema) about the people trapped in new orleans.
"I don't make judgments about why people chose not to leave but, you know, there was a mandatory evacuation of New Orleans...So, we've got to figure out some way to convince people that whenever warnings go out it's for their own good," Brown said. "Now, I don't want to second guess why they did that. My job now is to get relief to them."
what an asshole. they had no way out, jerkoff! not everyone has a sport utility vehicle like you do (and i'm assuming he does). not everyone lives in luxury or even with the basic amenities that dickheads like you take for granted.
i can't believe this shit. surely our president will tear him a new one.
oh wait, i forgot that g-dub is our leader, the same guy who responded to cindy sheehan's plea to talk to her about her dead son with "it's also important for me to go on with my life". the same guy who gave the nation's highest civilian honor to former cia director george tenet who, as the story now goes, supplied the president with false information about iraq that lead to the war we're in.
i could go on.
at least, the children in congress can agree on something obvious about the prez. from cnn.com
