I said it back in 2005, and that picture above really reminds me that while many people think of those that were killed or left homeless by Katrina, most don't realize that the real tragedy that came out of that storm was that the rest of the country found out how unattractive our governor is.

Joepole tell us how it really is I think that Kathy will need to go to west Shreveport to find a group that will like her politics.

I may not always like her politics, however I do think it was purely the luck of the draw that she was tasked with dealing with a problem that no politician has ever dealt with in my time of this earth - The utter devestation of a major US city.

This is North LA and even if the DNC owns Shreveport it does not carry the day for the North part of the state. I see they are taking a close look at Ray Nagin

New Orleans wasn't anywhere near being "a major US city."

Also, I think you're forgetting about San Francisco.

New Orleans is a toilet bowl and Katrina was the flush. Blanco can follow her favorite voters to Houston.

Sure it is. It was the largest city in our state. Ranks 38th if I count right.

>Do I detect an ad hominem attack there joe?

No, an ad hominem attack is when you use a personal attack to counter a person's point. I wasn't attack her point, I was attacking her looks.

>Sure it is. It was the largest city in our state. Ranks 38th if I count right.

38th is a long way from major. Portland is the largest city in Maine, Billings is the largest city in Montana, and Charleston is the largest city in West Virginia. None of those are major cities, either. A major city is one that is large and important to the country. New Orleans was only (by your estimate) 38th in size and wasn't very important outside the region (not in the last 100 years, anyway). Notice how the rest of the country wasn't affected at all by N.O.'s near-total shutdown?

Has anyone else noticed how Guliani turned his handling of a huge disaster into national prominence and a Presidential bid yet Blanco and Nagin turned their handling of one into the embarrassment of their careers?

Yeah...I noticed...but did ya notice how Nagin's incompetence did absolutely nothin to prevent him from bein re-elected? Cuz I sure as hell noticed. Besides, what exactly did Guliani do that was so heroic and "above and beyond the call o' duty"? How does losin 341 NYC firefighters, 23 NYC police officers, 37 Port Authority police officers, 2 paramedics, and over 2600 citizens on his watch make Guliani "America's Mayor"? He did nothin but lose people! He's every bit as incompetent as Nagin.
