Pot and kettle

Posted on Wed, Jun 11, 2008 at 1:06 PM

Is anyone else a bit tired of the American media, the American president and his American wife tut-tutting about the Chinese and Myanmar regimes' slowness in responding to the typhoon and earthquake damage inflicted on their country a month ago?

This finger-pointing is coming from the same goons who have long been silent on the destruction of New Orleans and the rest of the Gulf Coast and our own government's smirking non-response to that particular disaster.

Laura Bush tut-tuts from her Airborne Airstream about the Myanmar dictators' actions but sat like a stone monument while her husband and Dicked Cheney let the people along the Gulf Coast essentially shift for themselves for three years after Katrina devastated the area.

(Thanks to Hugh Mann for this supporting link; Myanmar got nothing on the Bushies when it comes to insensitivity.)
