Okay so I've been the lazy blogger since I haven't had the time and well even though there's a lot going on, it's still primarily primary battles in the news. Sure we're still losing men everyday in that place overseas that people keep trying to forget about. But today there was a lot of talk about McCain visiting the 9th ward in New Orleans.
All I have to say is that this stokes up huge memories. If you have any interest in my story(if you haven't read it yet, just search for it on this blog. Basically the point that a lot of bloggers are making is about what McCain was actually doing on the day after Katrina hit. What he was doing is accepting a birthday cake from President Bush on the Tarmac before his big speech about medical bullshit cards for seniors. Of course McCain sharply criticized Bush's response to Katrina, but let's look at this from the perspective of the people involved in that crisis. From our point of view, while Americans were dying and starving and being destroyed by a disaster that could've been avoided our President and his so called biggest fellow partied critic were enjoying a few laughs and letting the cake melt away on the tarmac while they went on to do "more important" things. That cake is New Orleans folks. I don't mean that literally of course. But I mean it in the reference to how much either of these very serious people care about New Orleans. And how much do they care? Enough to stand next to it, smile, take a picture and walk away unconcerned. Proof of this? McCain's response to questions about the 9th ward today:
"That is why we need to go back is to have a conversation about what to do -rebuild it, tear it down, you know, whatever it is"

really? We need to have a conversation to decide whether or not to rebuild an area that thousands called home? But what hurts most is the way he finishes this statement. "you know, whatever it is". Oh yeah, that's right, you know. whatever. I'm glad it's important enough that after almost 3 years, you really don't have to have any ideas about it, just the same general attitude of everyone up on the hill. Oh is it time to talk about New Orleans again? Well shit I better get on my serious face. Point the camera over here, I've got some questions to blow off. You're a piece of shit John McCain. And you're a liar. The people of New Orleans would rather you just went to hell.
