Dear Mr. Rove:
Congratulations! Your plan to take the Louisiana Governor’s mansion from the Democrats worked perfectly. Not only did you and your tame dogs at FEMA discredit Kathleen Blanco, you also managed to drive lots of people who would otherwise have been Democratic voters out of the state entirely. And of course Michael Brown took the hit.
By any reasonable standard, 1400 dead seems an acceptable level of collateral damage. That’s less than half the death toll from 9/11, and almost none of the dead were significant contributors.
Mission accomplished! Take a bow.
