Brian Williams at NBC News (via Atrios) :
"I am duty-bound to report the talk of the New Orleans warehouse district last night: there was rejoicing when the power came back on for blocks on end......... The motorcade route through the district was partially lit no more than 30 minutes before POTUS drove through. And yet last night, no more than an hour after the President departed, the lights went out. The entire area was plunged into total darkness again, to audible groans. It's enough to make some of the folks here who witnessed it... jump to certain conclusions."
Looks like our president has been blessed with the power of spontaneous electrification. Now if only he possessed the power to part the toxic waters of Lake New Orleans.
