Chimp Midas Still Got The Magic Touch In NOLA

He Did for New Orleans What He Did for Baghdad
It would seem, if our Chimpromised MSM is any source, that the only news to come out of New Orleans these days is good news. Rebuilding under way, cleanup, things are humming right along, right?

If you’re a Chimpleton, perhaps this is the right answer; but then you also believe that Baghdad is a Utopia of peace and freedom. The rest of us, those who know better, suspect a far different reality exists. The problem is, most of us have to rely on external sources for information because we don’t have the time to see things for ourselves.

Luckily, I have a MySpace friend who did go down and see for herself what the deal is in New Orleans. Those of you who have a MySpace account can go here and see the reality of post-Katrina New Orleans for yourselves. For those of you who don’t, I will borrow from Inge’s narrative and show you a few things you are highly unlikely to see on the “CBS Evening News” tonight. These pics were taken in August of 2007, but there is no reason at all to expect that things have changed much from what we see here. After all, these pics were taken almost 2 YEARS after the initial event-so why would anyone get in any kind of a hurry NOW?
