Dumbfounded

That is what I am right now... Dumbfounded. The saints will win the super bowl, Michael Bolton will put out some good music, and Keanu Reeves will learn to act.

Why?

Because hell has frozen over!

Bush has actually taken some personal responsibility for once in his life.

Bush Takes Responsibility for Blunders

Did he do this because of polls or because or because he really has finally admitted that he is fallible? I don't know, and I really don't care. I will withhold final judgment until his speech on Thursday to see if he truly accepts responsibility or is just trying for a sound bite. But if he is sincere, I will give him kudos for it.

It takes a big man to admit when he is wrong. To this point, he has not been a big man. But, I will not scream, "see, told you so" and use his admission against him if he is big enough to actually acknowledge the bungles.

I wonder who will take responsibility for the failure of the state and city debacle?

Like that lady in NO said, 'I'll bet those buses were runnin' on election day!'

The buses were running during the hurricane, too. They just had a couple of problems. (1) there was a shortage of qualified and available drivers and (2) it was much safer to be in the Superdome during at Cat5 hurricane than in a school bus on the open road.

Please! Enough with the buses! It's a FoxNews talking point used to slam Mayor Nagin, and (excuse the pun) it doesn't hold water.

Paoli- the point is that the buses should have ben running for 24 hours BEFORE the storm!

That's how evacuations work- BEFORE the event.
