    When there is an emergency you always need someone to throw under the bus. In this case I think he probably deserved it.

    I read the NY Times piece. He makes himself look blameless. Blanco did not have her act together, Chertoff didn't help me, and The White House was suppose to take over. What a leader.

    Umm, yeah. If a state doesn't have its chit together, isn't that one of the situations when FEMA should step in to help make sure chit gets done?

    On a slightly different note, the last gubernatorial election the Republican was a very talented politician named Bobby Jindal, a Rhodes Scholar (despite being a product of the Louisiana Public School System!) who took over the health care administration of Louisiana before the age of 30 and did a great job.

    Jindal lost in a narrow election, which considering this is a state which gave David Duke more votes than the Republican candidate in a runoff gubernatorial election about 15 years ago, did not surprise me considering he is Indian (as in India). I suspect Jindal would have done a better job than Blanco.
