In an ugly sense of an unconscious daydream, another natural tragedy has struck the US with its leader again out to lunch, or in this case, dinner:
- About 36,000 Iowans were evacuated because of statewide flooding, 24,000 of them in Cedar Rapids. The massive flooding has overwhelmed the city — which is in a 500-year flood plain, an area the federal government says has less than a 0.2 percent chance of flooding.
“It’s been compared to a 3,000-year flood,” Cedar Rapids police Detective Brad Novak said. “So something with that rarity of an event, there is no playbook to go by.”
Iowa Gov. Chet Culver has declared 83 of the state’s 99 counties disaster areas. More than 3,300 Iowa National Guard troops have been deployed to help primarily with sandbagging and staging resources, Maj. Gen. Ron Dardis of the Iowa National Guard said Sunday. Another 700 troops were expected to join them Monday.
Culver estimates agricultural damage could reach $1 billion, exceeding the costs of the big flood in 1993.

Instead of on a tarmac eating cake with Jackboot John McCain when Katrina slammed into New Orleans, Decider George dined with UK PM Gordon Brown and media moron Rupert Murdock in London while the heartland of America drowned.
The sumptuous cute little group had a nice time, despite all the noise and hubbub from outside:
- But despite non-stop chants of his name, the star of the show made no appearance in front of the crowds. The fact that the chants were “George Bush terrorist” and “Arrest George Bush” may have had something to do with it. Certainly the noise was loud enough to be heard above the polite conversation 200 yards away at 10 Downing Street.

Before Decider George leaves office in seven months, the crowds will be American and demonstrations will be all across the US.
This president is not only the most incompetent, corrupt one in US history, he is quickly becoming the most loathed.
He will leave office as probably the most-hated man on the planet.
