Subject: RE: BS: Rush Limbaugh blames Katrina's victims
Mudcatters are so filled with hate for Bush, Rush, and republicans in general that it gets in their way of clear rational thinking.   Like the media, they write the story first, and then try to find (or make up) the facts to support their conclusion.

1. The national guard was in Iraq- FACT- 22% of the Louisiana national guard was in Iraq.   785 was in the State.

FACT- the resonal the guard was delayed was because DEMOCRATIC governor Blanco wouldn't order them in the city in advance of the hurricane.   She didn't want a "white" national guard pressense in an "african" american city. After the flooding they weren't able to get in causing delays when they could have been right in the city. Thousands died as a result of this poor decision by Blanco.

2. Envrionmentalists are the problem- FACT- the decision to make the levy's only category 3 protection was made in the 1960's and approved by every president since then. Even Harry Reid inspected the Levy's and declared them sound.

3. Global warming is causing the hurricanes- FACT in the 1930's, 40's, and 50's we averaged 9 category 4/5 hurricanses a decade.   Since then we have only averaged 4-6 category 4 or 5 hurricanes per decace.   Global warming or Kyoto has nothing to do with it.

4. This is racial- FACT- a majority of help is white.   Hundreds of millions of dollars have been given by white people for New Orleans. It is shameful the racist exploitation by the race hucksters Jackson and Sharpton and Oprah.

Rush has 20 million listeners and has been # 1 in the ratings for over 10 years.   He was even #1 when he had no hearing.    Clearly Mudcatters know better what makes good radio.   Perhaps they can consult for Air America.
