Another FEMA foul-up? Maybe not.

On the surface, that's what the story in Hope, Arkansas appears to be.

The residents of Hope were displaced from their homes by a flurry of tornadoes. Sitting just 160 miles away, a field full of trailers purchased and furnished by FEMA in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina -- but never used due to vast incompetence.

It has been over a week since the people of Hope saw their homes destroyed. Why aren't the Fed's coming in with help?

Because unlike neighboring states Alabama and Georgia, which President Bush visited within 48 hours of the storms, Arkansas has a Democrat as governor. Alabama and Georgia are governed by Republicans.

Arkansas has received no help from FEMA because President Bush has not declared the sites to be a federal disaster area. But in Alabama and Georgia, it happened almost immediately.

Just what the hell is going on in the White House?

Heck'uva Job Brownie is gone. And now the Bush stands alone. Why is he refusing federal aid to the now-homeless citizens of Arkansas?
