The Rude Pundit: "Totally Black" in New Orleans

"...the Bush adminstration has broken the basic social contract in New Orleans, the one that goes all the way back to Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, the one that says we adhere to laws because you agree to protect us, and thus the city and its citizens have returned to the state of nature, which is to survive, motherfuckers, just survive."
When you break the basic social contract, isn't that treason? Or is it something much worse: something so vile and cruel that one can only describe it as the viscious fire-cracker pranks from the adult-stage spoiled rich kid who used to torture small animals?

Oh how the lazy and apathetic cry when they get mud in their eye.

It was the crack on the street that came to mind heavy, not the crack in the levee.

I lived on St. Charles not far from Canal. Didn’t enjoy the sleepless nights listening to you howl.

Have you wondered at all, how it would now be, if you’d made those levees as tall as a tree?

I know that right now you guys and gals are pissed, but tell me this, are you still laughing at the jokes you used to tell with delight about your crooked cops and politicians stealing all day and half the night?

Sure some good people died, but that's what happens when you condone a political lie.

In Southeast Asia, I watched three young men suffer and die who were burnt from head to toe while Johnson and Nixon played GI Joe. So for those of you who voted for George or didn’t vote at all, I don’t give a damn how many of you fall.

Oh well, what the hell, I’m sure the Red Cross will ring the dinner bell. And without a doubt the Bush-Cheney Construction Companies will be out and about. Don’t worry, they'll not send the bill to you, but to the Internal Revenue.
