More photo-op

It was bad enough hearing Trent Lott praise President Bush for being the only president to walk around his neighborhood after a hurricane (see previous post), but when I read about the thousand or so firemen brought into Louisiana, I nearly spit the coffee I already had swallowed onto my monitor screen. Joshua Marshall at Talking Points Memo discusses an article in the Salt Lake Tribune which tells how more than one thousand firemen were brought into Louisiana to ... do "community relations" work after first standing behind President Bush while the President toured the wreckage. Meanwhile, people remained in need of rescue and dangerous conditions needed to be stabilized. It seems clear that someone is uncleaer on the concept of efficiently allocating resources.
