breaching the levees of irony

As the Republicans look to place the blame on environmentalists for the damage done by Katrina in New Orleans, it seems as though new evidence is suggesting that the whole thing might be on account of global warming.

    But you make it souns as though the Bush administration is playing the “blame game,” and we all know that now is not the time for that. W said so himself.

    Here, in case you didn’t follow that first link, is the quote from the The (Mississippi) Clarion-Ledger:

    Federal officials appear to be seeking proof to blame the flood of New Orleans on environmental groups, documents show.

    The Clarion-Ledger has obtained a copy of an internal e-mail the U.S. Department of Justice sent out this week to various U.S. attorneys’ offices: “Has your district defended any cases on behalf of the (U.S.) Army Corps of Engineers against claims brought by environmental groups seeking to block or otherwise impede the Corps work on the levees protecting New Orleans? If so, please describe the case and the outcome of the litigation.”

    I guess the Department of Justice didn’t get the, “This is no time to play the blame game” memo from their boss.

    I got an article from my aunt (which I didn’t read after I saw the title) which stated that the problems in New Orleans were because of the Welfare State. If I still have it I’ll send it to you, but I think I deleted it pretty quickly.

    Post it here if you have it, Kathleen. I’d like to see it.
