Hey, wonder how the weather is on Martha’s Vineyard, where the president and his family are enjoying a swell vacation? Let’s check the Internet:
Wow, sounds fun! So, how are things for the people in Livingston Parish (those who are able to get back into their flooded homes, that is; 90% of the homes there took on water) tonight, without power and therefore without air conditioning?
President Coolidge came down in a railroad train
With a little fat man with a note-pad in his hand
The President say, “Little fat man, ain’t that a shame
What the river has done
To this poor cracker’s land.”
— Randy Newman, Louisiana 1927
Hey, at least President Coolidge came.
(Oh yes indeed, I am pissed off. I have liberal Democratic friends down here who are pissed off too.)
