Only the National Guard Stands between New Orleans and a Shooting Match

Sales of guns and ammo spike in the Big Easy ahead of Gustav.

Let's hope that instead of waiting five days to send the National Guard (if they aren't all in Iraq) and overtaxing the local police as they did after Katrina hit, the Bush Administration is already mobilizing NG troops to restore order given the state of emergency. With the Republican National Convention at stake, I'm sure that the White House intends to run this neat and save the failures for a less sensitive occasion.

And let's hope Homeland Security is not sitting on its hands again allowing war profiteer Blackwater security to thrust quietly into the post-hurricane disaster area with no accountability and to the tune of $950 tax dollars per day per mercenary.
