Tired of it

The Suspect Device Blog drops the bomb on compassionless conservatives with the post, "We've worn out our welcome." I concur with every word. How can this be?

Hundreds of people remain missing. Debris sits in piles waiting to be picked up. Demolition of the many thousands of buildings damaged beyond repair has barely just begun. Bodies are still being recovered...

But political talking head Bay Buchanan said on CNN the other day, "I think Katrina has worn its welcome... the American people are tired of it."

The levees are not quite repaired back to even their pre-Katrina level. With the exception of temporary gates at the three outfall canals, no real improvements to the hurricane protection system have been made.

If another Katrina comes this year, it will be deja vu all over again. Plaquemines: washed away. St. Bernard: a giant bathtub. New Orleans East: running water in every building. The only thing that will be different is that there will be fewer people to drown.

Getting tired of it?????
