The Horror

The news out of the Big Easy, Mississippi Delta and the Gulf Coast keeps getting worse and worse.

Here's one woman's heartwrencing story regarding the death of her husband and her efforts to get his body out.

I fear there are thousands of such stories.

    Now that you have a Katrina thread going, I am repeating my comment to another of your posts:

    Like the hours immediately follwing 9/11, the chimp is clueless as to what to do. But mark my words: Rove and company are engineering an empathy blitz to rival that of post-9/11. It'll really come full force once the media images begin to focus on white middle-class good looking victims. So far, current photos capture mostly African American sitting on roofs or wading through flood waters. Indeed, much of the spin from the rightish media has been on looting videos, to wit last night's Tucker Carlson coverage focusing on a black cop engaged in looting.

  • What's disturbing to me is that the right wing can look at this as an opportunity to spin. But I shouldn't underestimate the cynicism of Tucker Carlson and Karl Rove.
