Why is FEMA in Beirut?

Seen in the local fishwrap: "Watching the news, one would get the impression that evacuation of Americans from Lebanon was being handled by FEMA."

The only thing left is for the right-wingnuts to start blaming the victims because they didn't move the drowned buses to non-existent high ground before the air strikes started, or something equally stupid... I'm sure they'll come up with some way to blame the victims, it's their modus operandi when their Lord and Savior, George W. Bush, fucks up...

  1. I'm afriad that you are getting some competition from Focus on the Family:

  2. I'm waiting for the "Jesus called them home" excuse.

  3. Is that where Brownie went.
    (hope so)

  4. If you mean, "well away from the place he's needed", Brownie went there, yeah. As for Beirut, c'mon, you know he isn't going to go somewhere where, like, he might have to see DARKIES!

  5. An interesting post I saw about this, the military aspect of it, and the State Dept fiasco.

  6. Yep, the right wing ass wipe machine is out there blaming the people stuck in Lebanon for being there and wanting out. Limbaugh and O'Lielly are at it again.
