Be Vewwy, Vewwy Quiet or the Hurricanes Will Hear Us

Brownie so going to testify about the hurricane Katrina response today.

The White House has barred some top advisers and staffers from
answering Senate investigators' questions about the administration's
response, saying that certain discussions and documents must remain
confidential. But Brown, who quit FEMA shortly after the storm and left
the federal payroll Nov. 2, is no longer covered by that confidentiality protection.


Now, what specific "discussions and documents" must remain confidential? Are we scared that if it gets out that the Bush Administration is completely incompetent, doesn't care about poor people who vote Democrat and hires unqualified cronies to deal with these kinds of disasters, that the hurricanes will be listening and attack us even worse next year?

When the hurricanes find out that Federal Government knew all about the levees breaking on August 29th and then sat on their asses for a few days before doing anything, will they point and laugh at us? Will they humilitate us on their websites?

If we have a full investigation and actually come up with some areas that we need to improve on and a plan for improvement, and the hurricanes find out about it, will they be able to take advantage of our weaknesses?

Or maybe if we just never, ever, ever mention hurricane Katrina again, the hurricanes will forget how much fun they had devastating the Gulf Coast and go wreak havoc somewhere else.

There's more than one way to fight the "War on Weather" and national secrecy is paramount in the stuggle to overcome hurricanes.

    Well, I remember the fundies using Katrina images and saying they could see the image of a fetus. So maybe now they're expecting more grown-up and smarter 'canes.

    Brownie said that if the levees had been blown up by terrorists there would have been a much faster response.

    Dammit, now I'm starting to like that Brownie...he's doing a heck of a job!
