Blanco Goes to D.C. to Answer Brown Charge
http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20050928/ap...

Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco will appear before a Senate panel this morning, but she's already come out swinging against former FEMA head Michael Brown.

During testimony before a special House panel yesterday, Brown defended his handling of Hurricane Katrina. And he laid blame for what went wrong on Blanco, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin and even the White House.

Blanco takes strong exception to a charge by Brown that she waited until the eve of the storm to order an evacuation of New Orleans. She says Brown's comment clearly demonstrates what she says is the "appalling degree" to which he's "out of touch with the truth or reality."

For his part, Nagin says it's too early to get into "name blame" but he says "a FEMA director in Washington trying to deflect attention is unbelievable."

1. Well, I hope she's on her game today.
You just know those Republicans will be going after her big time.

Will this be on C-Span? I see the Army Corps of Engineers will be on at 2:00 pm on C-Span 3.

2. Now, being something of a pacifist, myself,...
...I feel Gov. Blanco should just calmly redirect the attention to Mr. Brown's inept handling of the situation, and stand firm, but passively by, and let the chips fall where they may.

....uh,....however,......

...if she just HAD to state her indignation in a more FORTHRIGHT manner, she might want to walk up to Mr. Horse-Butt-Analyst, yank a wedgie so hard in his shorts that his balls pop up in his mouth; bitch-slap the bastard about a dozen or so times, and cold-cock his sorry ass and let him lie bleeding, right there, on the senate floor.

.....I mean, if she just HAD to.

9. I'm just wondering when
the perjury charges against brown will be filed. He WAS under oath when he lied through his teeth wasn't he?
