Picked this up today reading Humid City, Suspect Device and Third Battle of New Orleans.
Bay Buchannan, discussing how the Bush administration is politically affected by the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, spake these words:
"I believe that Katrina has worn its welcome. We've heard about it, we've heard about it, the American people responded, the President suffered, it weakened [Bush's] poll numbers, but to suggest that somehow this is going to continue to play against him, I think the American people are getting a little tired of it, myself."
You can see the CNN video here if you don't believe me.
The American people are tired of hearing about Katrina? More specifically the way the Administration dropped the ball during the disaster? Do Gulf Coast residents not count as Americans anymore?
What makes me really angry is the bandwagon marketing technique she's using to spin this and the attitude she uses with it < valley*girl*voiceover >: 'Americans have moved on from the whole (quote fingers) Katrina thing (quote fingers),' 'oh, that Katrina thing was, like, sooo last year,' 'are you still talking about that Katrina thing, booorring.'
Well, I am one American person who cares a whole hell of a lot about the whole 'Katrina' issue, and my voice and my votes are going to reflect that.
