3. here's the RW strategery (sic)
1. Blame local officials in and around New Orleans (Democratic and African American)
2. Contrast with Republican "hero" local official Giuliani
3. Use continued problems to bid for more federal control (read: Republicans trump Dems in Louisiana) or to blame local official intransigence as excuse for problems.
4. whenever situation untenable, have feds make unacceptable demands upon local officials, so that the failure of local officials to "cooperate" or "authorize" can be blamed.

This way, RW feds either get more power, or at least they get arguments why they are not to blame
