Let’s see…we need to get Dick down to the disaster area so let’s send him to
New Orleans Mississippi (it’s more Republican friendly) and, well, that didn’t work out so well:
Walking a hurricane-ravaged street, Vice President Dick Cheney declared Thursday that much progress is being made in a disaster relief effort he termed â€œvery impressive.â€
Cheneyâ€™s plane took him on a course over heavily damaged houses as he arrived to this Gulf Coast town destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. After meeting with state and local officials, Cheney and his wife, Lynne, toured a particularly damaged part of the town.
While Cheney spoke, a passer-by hurled an expletive at the vice president. â€œFirst time Iâ€™ve heard it,â€ Cheney said, when asked if he was hearing a lot of such sentiments.
Yeah. That would be this.
Then another local chimes in:
Most the people Cheney met with were friendly. Lynne Lofton, whose house further down the street was completely destroyed, was an exception.
â€œI think this media opportunity today is a terrible waste of time and taxpayer money,â€ she said. â€œTheyâ€™ve picked a nice neighborhood where people have insurance and most are Republicans.â€
It looks like the peasants are revolting.
Dick Cheney would probably add, “Yes. They certainly are.”
