Why -- did you think I was exaggerating about what a self-serving sack of shit we have in this manchild sock puppet president?

"Frustrated: Fire crews to hand out fliers for FEMA"

ATLANTA - Not long after some 1,000 firefighters sat down for eight hours of training, the whispering began: "What are we doing here?"

"...They've got people here who are search-and-rescue certified, paramedics, haz-mat certified," said a Texas firefighter. "We're sitting in here having a sexual-harassment class while there are still [victims] in Louisiana who haven't been contacted yet..."

The firefighter, who has encouraged his superiors back home not to send any more volunteers for now, declined to give his name because FEMA has warned them not to talk to reporters...

Firefighters say they want to brave the heat, the debris-littered roads, the poisonous cottonmouth snakes and fire ants and travel into pockets of Louisiana where many people have yet to receive emergency aid.

But as specific orders began arriving to the firefighters in Atlanta, a team of 50 Monday morning quickly was ushered onto a flight headed for Louisiana. The crew's first assignment: to stand beside President Bush as he tours devastated areas.

--To be fair, it's not Monkey Boy's fault these men and women were sidetracked to FEMA, even for a PR job, but as the photo above shows, taking them off the job (i.e., letting people die who might otherwise be saved) so he can look good make one wonder wistfully what happened to good old Texas Lynch Law.
