Kathleen versus Katrina 

Life imitates Chrenkoff:
It will be interesting to see whether the left, which criticised the Bush team for not getting the US military to stop the looting in the post-liberation Iraq, will now call for the troops to be brought back to shoot the looters in New Orleans.
And later on today:
Governor Kathleen Blanco said: "Three hundred of the Arkansas National Guard have landed in the city of New Orleans.

"These troops are fresh back from Iraq, well-trained, experienced, battle-tested and under my orders to restore order in the streets.

"They have M-16s and they are locked and loaded.

"These troops know how to shoot and kill and they are more than willing to do so if necessary and I expect they will."
Well, it's a good thing they went to Iraq in the first place to get all that "well-trained, experienced, battle-tested." Eagerly awaiting the first leftie pundit to call Gov Blanco a fascist.

It's already ugly in New Orleans, but I'm sure it will get uglier. There is a difference though between stranded residents making off with water and food, and Mad Max-esque well-organized and armed gangs roaming (or paddling) the streets and terrorizing the locals, unlucky visitors and those trying to assist.
