This just in. . .

From Garfield Ridge

Via CNN where else?
That ALGore has airlifted 2 planeloads of refugees from N'awlines.

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee (AP) -- Al Gore helped airlift some 270 Katrina evacuees on two private charters from New Orleans, acting at the urging of a doctor who saved the life of the former vice president's son.

Gore criticized the Bush administration's slow response to Katrina in a speech Friday in San Francisco, but refused to be interviewed about the mercy missions he financed and flew on September 3 and 4.

However, Dr. Anderson Spickard, who is Gore's personal physician and accompanied him on the flights, said: "Gore told me he wanted to do this because like all of us he wanted to seize the opportunity to do what one guy can do, given the assets that he has."

An account of the flights was posted this week on a Democratic Party Web page

"The situation was dire and becoming worse by the minute -- food and water running out, no power, 4 feet of water surrounding the hospital and ... corpses outside," Simon wrote.

Gore responded immediately, telephoning Kline and agreeing to underwrite the $50,000 each for the two flights,

Most critically, Gore worked to cut through government red tape, personally calling Gov. Phil Bredesen to get Tennessee's support and U.S. Transportation Secretary Norm Mineta to secure landing rights in New Orleans.

I'm kinda curious here, was sombody hearding these corpses around so that in a city the size of San Antonio, everyone had to wade around less than 300 152 of them?
I thought that everything was under water, How can airliners land in standing water? AND political(D) favoritism is still alive and well when it comes to the Big Easy- I see.
Also, I'm not surprised, it being CNN and all, that NO mention was made that a DEMOCRATIC governess refused to let the Red Cross distribute needed supplies.
