I am starting to doubt reports that shots were fired at New Orleans
Maybe gunshots were heard by the rescuers - there have been
2 reported shootings involving law enforcement and looters but no recorded
attacks on rescuers - but is it a convenient excuse to hide their lack of ability
to rescue the people there? Shooting is preventing rescue efforts for all of
Why do I think this? I know the info-marketing game. Sean Hannity is
closely linked to Karl Rove's office. He gets talking points from that office
daily if not hourly.
All Hannity did on his radio and television show today was discuss
how looters were halting rescue efforts because police and National Guard units
were being diverted to stop the lootings.
Hannity would do all he could to divert the discussion to this "talking
point" when the issue came up that there was no rescue effort visible.
That is how the Bushies are going to spin why there was no initial
rescue effort - the looters were shooting at the rescuers - to hide their lack
or resources and competence.
