This is getting ridiculous.

Update: This adds to the insanity… Misery Grows for Those Left in New Orleans

At midday, the evacuation was interrupted briefly when school buses rolled up so some 700 guests and employees from the Hyatt Hotel could move to the head of the line to be evacuated much to the amazement of those who had been crammed in the stinking Superdome since Sunday.

“How does this work? They (are) clean, they are dry, they get out ahead of us?” exclaimed Howard Blue, 22, who tried to get in their line. The National Guard made him get back in with the unwashed masses as other guardsmen helped the well-dressed guests with their luggage.

Update again: Kos says this reads like a Saturday Night Live skit, but I don’t find this humorous one bit:

Bush to women: “There’s a Salvation Army center that I want to, that I’ll tell you where it is, and they’ll get you some help. I’m sorry…. They’ll help you…..

Woman 1: “I came here looking for clothes…”

Bush: “They’ll get you some clothes, at the Salvation Army center…”

Woman 1: “We don’t have anything…”

Bush: “I understand…. Do you know where the center is, that I’m talking to you about?”

Guy with shades: “There’s no center there, sir, it’s a truck.”

Bush: “There’s trucks?”

Guy: “There’s a school, a school about two miles away…..”

Bush: “But isn’t there a Salvation center down there?”

Guy: “No that’s wiped out….”

Bush: “A temporary center? ”

Guy: “No sir they’ve got a truck there, for food.”

Bush: “That’s what I’m saying, for food and water.”

Bush turns to the sister who’s been saying how she needs clothes.

Bush to sister: “You need food and water.”
