Remember when George W Bush was accused of not caring about black people after Katrina hit New Orleans, a city with a nearly 70% black population, and prominent blacks and Democrats rushed to his defense pointing out that the city and state, who are the first responders in a disaster were both run by Democrats? Yeah, me neither. Pass it on.
Well, it turns out that Vermont, devastated by Irene, is the whitest state in America. Has Obama been there yet? How many FEMA trailers are on the ground today? Has power been restored to everyone? Is everyone in a shelter? Has the US Army or Navy been mobilized? Does everyone have food and water? Look, we had a whole week of dire warnings to prepare for this thing. This was not a surprise! Was Obama on vacation or something? I think Obama doesn’t care about white people!
Of course, both the accusation against Bush and my parody against Obama are ridiculous. The difference being I understand the idiocy, but Democrats including Obama rode that ginned-up hatred to electoral victory. Shameful. And dangerous.
