Tomorrow morning, Hurricane Rita, a catagory 3, 4 or 5 storm will be swamping a large part of Texas and maybe some parts of Louisiana. There happen to be a lot of poor Hispanics and Latinos in Texas. Hispanics and Latinos are a demographic that has been moving away in larger and larger numbers from the Democratic Party. Expect a very loud chorus of wails about how George Bush and his administration don't care the plight of poor Hispanics and Latinos. Or better yet, illegal Hispanics and Latinos.
Another happening is happening tomorrow morning. Cindy Sheehan's Peace Train is holding the big, Anti-War-Impeach-George Bush-And-Bring-Home-The-Troops-Rally on the Mall. The Freepers will be there too holding a Pro-war, Pro-George Bush Rally. These two groups will take as much centerstage as Hurricane Rita's coverage will allow them to. The media must be in Heaven. The Peperiums will be in a sound proof room.
Here's Gerald Baker's gimlet eye on the aftermath of Katrina. Not pretty and there will be even more promises made with Rita. Were you aware that St. Rita is the patron saint of lost causes? She might be a good one to tap now.
