The traditional media is starting its wall-to-wall coverage of the fifth anniversary of Katrina smashing into Louisiana. All the big media stars are broadcasting live from New Orleans. Obama will be in the city on Sunday.
I was looking through some of our posts from late August of 2005, as Katrina was approaching. One of the first Katrina-related posts John wrote, on August 28th, was: Will Bush stay on vacation while the hurricane destroys New Orleans? We got our answer. The Bush administration’s response was a complete and total failure.
Nothing on the Veep’s public schedule today. Obama is wrapping up his vacation.
Tomorrow, Glenn Beck and the teabaggers are descending on DC for their big rally at the Lincoln Memorial. That’ll be fun.
