  3. Were George W. Bush’s photo-ops cold-blooded?

    Is this editorial in the National Review Online

    saying the 2008 Republican Convention should be in New Orleans cold-blooded?

As the story notes, hundreds of firefighters ready to help out in New Orleans have been confined to lectures at a FEMA seminar in Atlanta, with federal officials preventing them from heading to the disaster zone. Yet, as the last paragraph of the story notes, 50- of the firefighters are being released to stand in as President Bush’s personal photo-op props.
