Katrina...the Republicans' Model for America?

Somehow, a Republican address to the nation built around the government's response to and lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina was just a bit too irony-filled, even for me and even if Governor Bobby Jindal is the Governor of Louisiana.

And are people really taking Jindal seriously? Did anyone else feel like an 7-year old after hearing his condescending tone? Someone also needs to strap his arms down or give the man a podium. Did an aide tell him to emphasize every syllable with hand gestures?

A few other random thoughts on the night of President Obama's big speech:

Nancy Pelosi would never survive "What Not to Wear" with that outfit. It was a horrible color on her and looked like it was made of burlap.

I also think she was spring loaded. She was bouncing up from her seat so fast to applaud that I expected her to vault over the President's head and land in Patrick Kennedy's lap at least once during the night.

Was Joe Lieberman sucking a lemon?

Got to love the Republicans who remained sitting on softball applause lines about children's health care and expanding aid so more kids can go to college. That's the spirit, guys!

I think Mitch McConnell is a Red Lectroid. I'll try to dig up a picture of Vincent Schiavelli from "Buckaroo Banzai" so you can see what I mean. Seriously. The man has got to be from Planet 10 and taking orders from Lord John Whorfin. It's the only explanation.
