Deja Vu All Over Again

There is a ruinous flood in Iowa, with river levels at 12 feet above the levees. The National Guard has been sent to a foreign country. The people are desperate for help and no one has come.

The maddening incompetence of the Bush Administration is exceeded only by its mountainous corruption. Bush will probably do a fly over and call for a massive check to be written out of the Nation's credit card account, which he will then give to the people who made those FEMA trailers that nobody can live in.

Iowa is the New Katrina:

NOBODY from the outside has come to help. Our local first responders are exhausted and overwhelmed. Small rural towns downstream tonight are being devastated. Levees everywhere are failing. Calls for help in these small towns have been unmet. Portions of our local guard are in Iraq.

The homeland has been left unprotected and people are suffering horribly.

More from insidethe flood zone

Having done nothing to help fix the broken system that his party's minions put in place, John McCain may stand before a green screen in a small room with his supporters and decry the situation that he himself enabled.

We must save ourselves from these people!

    That's a sad situation and yet another testimony to the uselessness of our leaders.

    All things considered, Iowa should consider themselves lucky Homeland Security and FEMA aren't there. No reason to make a bad situation worse.
