“One of the Worst Abandonments of Americans on American Soil Ever”

The president of Jefferson Parish in New Orleans, Aaron Broussard, just issued an emotional appeal on NBC’s Meet the Press. By the end, he was completely broken down, sobbing uncontrollably:

[Crooks and Liars, as always, has the video.]

RUSSERT: You just heard the director of homeland security’s explanation of what has happened this last week. What is your reaction?

BROUSSARD: We have been abandoned by our own country. Hurricane Katrina will go down in history as one of the worst storms ever to hit an American coast. But the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina will go down as one of the worst abandonments of Americans on American soil ever in U.S. history. … Whoever is at the top of this totem pole, that totem pole needs to be chainsawed off and we’ve got to start with some new leadership. It’s not just Katrina that caused all these deaths in New Orleans here. Bureaucracy has committed murder here in the greater New Orleans area and bureaucracy has to stand trial before Congress now.

Just like in a family, where the misfortune of one necessitates the involvement of all, so too is America a sort of extended family, and all of us are going to have to aid our siblings in Louisiana. Pursuant to that, the next two years are going to see tax increases of 2% per bracket. That'll go towards rebuilding the flooded territories and making sure our soldiers have body armor. It sucks, but Bush, Cheney, and all participating cabinet members are going to lead the way by sacrificing their salaries for the next three years. isn't it?

"When it is all said and done, I will have made more money than I ever dreamed I would make."
