BUSH FAILS TO PREVENT EAST COAST BLIZZARD
Minorities Hit Hardest
As President Bush and his staff cowered in the White House hiding
from the press, the snow continued to pile up on the many poor and
African Amercian victims who could not afford to get out of town or to
safety in Florida.
Crucial supplies of blankets, hot cocoa, popcorn and dark rum, so
essential to surviving the stress of any major snowstorm, lay in
"Where is the government? I need my sidewalk shovelled so I can
get out to buy my danged lottery tickets!" said one D.C. resident from his
living room. "Why are we wasting money in Iraq when we could be spending it
here on me?"
Progressive blogs blasted the President for his inaction. "We find

many SNOW SHOVELS they sold today to the unsuspecting consumer?
I demand to know why FEMA has been so late in reacting to this
storm. THEY KNEW IT WAS COMING!? And yet they failed to have crews in
place to fix the electricity as soon as it went off. It just shows that
Bush and the Republicans just don't care about the people in the N.E.
The Senate needs to investigate this with administration people
I'll bet that the great junior senator from N.Y. has opened the
doors of her home to all of the heatless poor of her neighborhood and is
busy baking cookies for them while her husband applies body heat to the
nearly frozen teen-aged girls.
Ban Winter..for the children.
