Is it just me?

Wizbang is reporting that New Orleans is flooding again, what with the weakened levees etc. etc. etc.

Was it just me, or did anyone else see those high cement walls, the houses looking all busted up, the crime etc., Ernest Borgnine wandering around all dazed, and think you know, there's only one person to handle this job....

We need someone who is a war hero.

We need someone who can think unconventionally, who knows what to do with the media, who can resourcefully solve problems and cut through the bureaucracy.

Someone who can be acceptable to the lefties, because he can say, "I don't give a fuck about your war...or your President!" But is acceptable to the right because, well, just who he is: the only person who truly embodies the idea of federal emergency management.

I can only think of one person we can appoint to head up F.E.M.A. and give New Orleans what it deserves. And I hear your objection, "Steve, but he's dead."

And that's what they always think:

I thought you were talking about John "Snake" Mccain for a minute there.

I think right now he's saying, "You can call me Plisskin." The only question is, what are you holding over his head to make him do your dirty work this time?

That's just between me and Goldie's lawyers....

Somehow I can see the mayor of New Orleans being driven aound in the car that Isaac Hayes drove in that movie.

Don't you mean Rudy Russo for Congress?

On a positive note, the competitive bidding for reconstruction contracts will be enlivened by the inclusion of "Bangkok Rules" in the bidding process.
