WHEN to Use the Busses

Over at The Curt Jester, it is made clear: the NO and LA politicians know how to use vans and busses. assure their re-election...

I recall a recent U.S. Senate election in Louisiana in which incumbent Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu was running for re-election. The election was on a Saturday. By Saturday afternoon on election day, Sen. Landrieu noticed and became concerned that turnout in the heavily Democratic black neighborhoods of New Orleans appeared to be lagging. That was bad news for the Democratic Senator. So the political machine cranked up and voters were quickly and efficiently transported to the polls in the very same black neighborhoods that have now been devastated by the hurricane. When an election was at stake, plenty of poor black New Orleanians were aggressively picked up and taken to the polls.

Ahh. Nice. I might have to use this. This whole time I thought we weren't getting buses to them because they were black.
Apparently, Bush don't like that them thar black folks cuz his originations from Texas. That's why he aimed Katrina at them, then didn't show up in time, and also secretly assisted all of the whites in the meantime.
All this time I was watching it happen, I saw Americans in peril and I also saw Americans come to their assistance.
