Idiots

As the anniversary of Katrina rolls over us, everyone is scrambling to do something "meaningful" to commemorate the event.

Like TalkLeft. Their brilliant idea?
Help water the bushes for the anniversary of Katrina.

Please send a bottle of water to:

President George Bush
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Put your return address as:

Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
900 Convention Center Boulevard
New Orleans, LA 70130

Har Har! Get it? Water the bushes? Yes, send your bottle of water to Washington, that'll really help the hundreds of thousands of people still waiting for work to begin on their homes in New Orleans. Send your bottle of water and wallow in your sense of self satisfaction and wittiness. Send your bottle of water and then go back to concentrating on mid-term election analysis.

Someone else will pick up your slack. Do-nothing, feel-good, blogging; yeah!

  1. That is not even paticularly clever. Are you going to watch the Spike Lee movie on HBO?. I am still trying to figure out what to do on "the day". Sleep late, cry, clean up my Neighborhood.

  2. I'm still waiting for a group of students to stand on the Common somewhere and blow really loudly on that day. That'll be super meaningful. I swear people want to do anything except help.

    I don't get HBO, but I'll look for it on the Internet. I'm curious to see it, just so I can relate to what people are saying.
