It wouldn't be quite so bad if B.P. took the time to get his facts right.

BATON ROUGE--Today Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco forwarded a letter to President Bush requesting that he declare an emergency for the State of Louisiana due to Hurricane Katrina.

Too little, too late.

The feds had declared such a state of emergency twelve hours before the storm hit.

However, the feds have no jurisdiction over state matters--little known to the great unwashed is the fact that states are sovereign and have authority EQUAL to that of the Federal.

Blanco's been worse than useless, and Nagin has served well only as comic relief.
