Editilla on Hope a Dope

Irreverently insightful and, at times, just so damn funny I laughed aloud, Editillia does us proud.

We were all set to see our Hope Vote validated this past 8/29 Anniversary, but His O’ner blew our Holy Day in The City The Corps Forgot to go on vacation after only 6 months on the job and play golf at a Rich People’s Place. Thus we saw the ‘Hope’ first begin to uncoil.

Then we heard about the White House trip to the Gulf, a 3 Hour Tinkle-Stop Tour, to check on the status of Hurricane Katrina recovery by A) Not going to Mississippi where Katrina actually hit, causing total devastation, and B) Going to New Orleans where Katrina did not hit and did not cause our total devastation –thence we saw the ‘A’ -hidden behind his back, a foreign object.

Then the Big Show finally arrives amidst obvious disregard and Presidential hubris that we should all be so grateful the president took the time to come and blow smoke up our asses and use our wounded city to Campaign for his Health Care/Economic Thingy.

Butt, it wasn’t until His O’ner opened his mouth and out came the Wise Blood channeling Elmer Gantry (as a Yankee might think we southerners behave in “N’Awlins”) that Editilla saw the scene completed, saw the ‘Dope’. That is when I saw His O’ner “just getting started” on his wind-up to whip us with Hope’A’Dope.

In short, he Punted us as a political football and Punked us as a Tourette Syndrome Political Step-Child. “Feisty crowd,” he said. HA! Oh, Brutha, Where Art Thou? Et tu Barack?

Editilla needed Barack Obama to show he is paying attention himself. I needed him to Be Here Now –not on his Hope’float Campaign Parade. What I did not expect to find is that our Smart New Progressive President doesn’t know the difference between Shit and ShiNola, thinks Katrina hit New Orleans and caused our devastation and thus is covering for the Corps of Engineers Bad Pumps, constant project delays, Options 1 or 2 Extortion, Not Repairing their Bad Flood Walls and Shifting Around Millions in Flood Funding –right now today. The Commander in Chief did NOT take Command here, he took to the Campaign Trail.

New Orleans did not need to hear about his problems perfecting his Legislative Golf Game or his misunderstanding of Tort Law. New Orleans needed a Face to Face Patient/Doctor Consultation.

Soooo, we will hang various other people’s posts and articles on this as they come about. What we will Not do is continue Obama’s Media Blitz about how he “showed leadership in New Orleans” on his first visit as President. He did not. But I don’t Hate him for it. I just don’t accept Disaster Capitalism –or it’s Messengers…

In the interests of full disclosure (and to satisfy the requirements of my court-ordered aversion therapy) Editilla must remind our Gentle’rillas that I VOTED FOR THIS LIPSTICK PIG…

You’ll miss a treat if you don’t drag yourself up the rungs of the Ladder and read what Editilla has hung out the last few days.

  1. An excellent and “on point” observation. I am afraid our president has missed the fact he won. It is now time to be president for all the people.

    BTW, did he stop by the local ACORN office to thank his legions for their “support”?

  2. Thanks Doucy! I really appreciate that hat tip.
    It really was when I heard his fake southern accent that my pin was pulled. I just really hate to hear a Yankee talk down to us.

    The next day after Obama short-sheeted Nola he was in Texas where he called George Bush Sr an example of someone who eschewed “a life of comfort and privilege” and instead devoted himself to public service — inside government and out.
    Now, That IS funny because Obama wasn’t being sarcastic. He is either That stupid or a liar.

    Obama and I are the same age, off a year but basically the same age, so he really should know better than to apply such a Low Income Community Organizer meme to a black-blooded Nazi aristocrat whose very namesake laundered Reich funds for WW2 through their bank and whose family cheated for their wealth by selling oil to the Germans illegally, thereby endangering the life of my father and his buddies. I was not born yet of course. How many Americans do you think did not get born from the efforts of George Bush Sr’s lineage? 1000 Points of Light used to be reserved for the first 1000 souls a country loses in War. Peggy Noonan used to be a cute little girl at one time.

    But hey, we thought Obama at least knew that Katrina struck MS.
    I thought it Ironic to see Bush and Obama standing there ass fucking a perfectly good metaphor. I hate it when people bugger metaphor. Sure…stretch it, slap it around, dance with it however you want –but don’t send metaphor to the gas chambers.
    I don’t know how many of your remember when they started rolling out all this doublethink back during Reagan and we could only know their real intents by following the Opposite of what they were saying. So when the former head of the CIA and architect of the Massacres in Central America and Author of the CIA’s manual on destabilizing small local elections started talking about 1000 Points of Light.

    The implications of Obama’s Ignorance of our Gulf Coast are manifold, but the 2nd most worrisome to me is his grasp of the War in Afghanistan as it is becoming increasingly apparent that this Commander In Chief is neither.

    But as Irony would have it, Big George was a 1 Term President. I just hope Obama remembers that and also…
    IT’S THE LEVEES STUPID!
