Bahamonde for president!
It seems like every single day this administration leaves me saying "You have got to be kidding me!" and today is no different.
Crooks and Liars has video of a newscast yesterday on the FEMA hearings in which Michael Brown's man on the ground, Marty Bahamonde, emailed him from the Superdome saying
"...the situation is past critical... Hotels are kicking people out, thousands gathering in the streets with no food or water... Estimates are many will die within hours."Bahamonde testified that he didn't remember getting a reply to that email but was later forwarded an email from Brown's press secretary that said
"... it is very important that time is allowed for Mr Brown to eat dinner. Given that Baton Rouge is back to normal, restaurants are getting busy. He needs much more than 20 or 30 minutes."Bahamonde's reply:
"OH MY GOD!!!!!!!! Just tell her that I just ate an MRE and went to the bathroom in the hallway of the Superdome along with 30,000 other close friends, so I understand her concern about busy restaurants."They should pin murder charges on Michael Brown. I mean, maybe it's just me, but when people are dying in the streets and you are the head of the agency that is supposed to be helping and saving them, you order in! Call a pizza place so you don't have to leave the phone for a second, or send Joe Blow the intern down to McDonald's to pick up some Big Macs. You don't go to a nice "sit-down" restaurant and enjoy a fine dining experience while people you're supposed to help are starving and dying of thirst.
