It's time I'm walkin' to New Orleans


Via Steve Gilliard, we have this from Jonah Goldberg:

I think it's time to face facts. That place is going to be a Mad Max/thunderdome Waterworld/Lord of the Flies horror show within the next few hours. My advice is to prepare yourself now. Hoard weapons, grow gills and learn to communicate with serpents. While you're working on that, find the biggest guy you can and when he's not expecting it beat him senseless. Gather young fighters around you and tell the womenfolk you will feed and protect any female who agrees to participate without question in your plans to repopulate the earth with a race of gilled-supermen. It's never too soon to be prepared.

Continues Steve:

Let me translate:

Poor niggers, New Orleans is yours. Act like your usual animal selves and die killing each other. Us safe, dry white folks will laugh at your plight, since you are only niggers and not human.

When will these people act like adults and not spoiled children.

A post like Jonah's would embarrass a normal person, and infuriate a decent person.

He is neither.

Laugh about it, spanky. I know sympathy and empathy are just so over, but you might try a little bit, especially since Louisiana voted red in '04.

We'll let them know what you said, we'll put it on posters pasted on the FEMA relief packages they get from the Federal Government:

Jonah Goldberg envies you, and your Mad Max adventure.

Invite him down for a beignet. Oh, wait, you're underwater. Well, he should be too.
