For someone to start pontificating on the difference in the situation in Mississippi and Louisiana and New Orleans.
We don't hear that much about Mississippi, not because the devastation there is not terrible, In truth the main force of Katrina struck there and not Louisiana.
But the resulting chaos in New Orleans in particular is so much greater, it gets the lion share of the media coverage.
We as usual, had Howard Deans take on the tragedy and his reasoning for the situation in New Orleans.
(CNN) -- Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said that in Hurricane Katrina's wake Americans need to face the "ugly truth" that race and class played a significant role in who lived and died.
"We have to come to terms with the ugly truth that skin color, age and economics played a significant role in who survived and who did not," he said. "And this question, 40 and 50 years after Dr. [Martin Luther] King [Jr.] and the civil rights movement, is, 'How could this still be happening in America?' "
" he said. "I'm not here to point the finger of blame
Not much surprising there. About what we can expect from Screaming Howie. One does wonder what he sounds like when he is pointing the finger of blame?
Unless it's like some of these samples?
Howard Dean Scream Remixes
But what I am waiting for is Howie, the DNC and the rest of the assembled talking heads to realize despite their consistent fixation on Race and Skin Color that the folks in New Orleans were also DEMOCRATS.
The Governor of Mississippi, were things are running smoothly, compared to New Orleans that is, by no means can Disaster Recovery on a scale such as this be even called smooth and easy, is a REPUBLICAN.
Yes folks having already played the Bush let people die because they were of a certain RACE, I am waiting for the Mantra, Bush let people die because they belonged to a certain Party.
That if the leaders in Mississippi were REPUBLICAN things would have been handled much better there.
The really sad part is-- they will be RIGHT.
But not for the reasons they will think of.
Maybe the voters in Louisiana and New Orleans will wake up to truth, come the next elections.
Those that are still left that is.
UPDATE I am surprised it too almost three weeks. Michele Malkin has the details at

Washington (CNSNews.com) - The Bush administration's slow response to Hurricane Katrina may be the result of minority votes being suppressed and Democratic candidates losing the last two presidential elections, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus has alleged.
