    This greeted me in my mailbox when I got home from work.

    I just love their subtlety.

    Interestingly the picuture is of the busses Nagin should have used to get "his citizens" out, but the top caption lays it at the feet of the federal government.

    I don't think "Your Government" refers to any particular branch of government. Instead I believe it refers to the ineptness of government in general, and, based on the picture, the failings of the government of New Orleans in particular.

    The cover article itself is about the ridiculous pervasiveness of the 'Bush Hatred' phenomenon.

    National Review is one of my favorite magazines! Too bad it only comes out every other week. I normally read it from cover to cover (except for a few articles)....

    I really thought that the article that used the fireman analogy was very appropriate.....

    I looked at it again with new eyes as you describe it and I do see what you say. If you look at the cover from the perspective of the media blames Bush but look at all those unused and under water busses that should have been.

    National Review was a once-great publication, ready to stick up for whites (See WFB's famous editorial about blacks and the franchise). Now, it's the "Golberg Review", eager to stick up for ISREAL, not the U.S. It totally abandoned the whites who BUILT this mofo.

    Though John Derbyshire, I like. And I bet this cover story sticks it to Nagin, which is where the blame belongs, not on Bush.

    Not only does National Review tell the truth in pictures, but in the written word as well.

    I understand there's a liberal website dedicated to refuting what is written in National Review, much like the Media Research Center and www.timeswatch.org refutes what appears in the New York Times. Has anyone come across that website yet? If so, please direct me to it.

    I did a quick Google search and can't find anything.... probably, like many liberal websites, radio stations etc, it was disbanded due to lack of interest....

    National Review is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, that is quite a testament to them. They may not be the biggest, but they were the first publication that dared to stand up to the liberal media.... today's alternate media certainly owes them (and its founder, William F Buckley) a debt of gratitude....

    His article is about why we shouldn't be surprised by the looting. That that's what happens when you tell a group of people non-stop for four decades that they are being cheated and victimized.
