Of course it’s only “politics”, but something gratifying about:
Says the RNC ? And many disengaged Dems would agree with them. So if I may, let’s learn the official “I Told You So” dance:
or the more agressive “Scrubs” version will work too:

From their Press Release
Doctors Without Borders Cargo Plane With Full Hospital and Staff Blocked From Landing in Port-au-Prince
Demands Deployment of Lifesaving Medical Equipment Given Priority
Port-au-Prince/Paris /New York, 17 January 2009—Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) urges that its cargo planes carrying essential medical and surgical material be allowed to land in Port-au-Prince in order to treat thousands of wounded waiting for vital surgical operations. Priority must be given immediately to planes carrying lifesaving equipment and medical personnel.
Despite guarantees, given by the United Nations and the US Defense Department, an MSF cargo plane carrying an inflatable surgical hospital was blocked from landing in Port-au-Prince on Saturday, and was re-routed to Samana, in Dominican Republic. All material from the cargo is now being sent by truck from Samana, but this has added a 24-hour delay for the arrival of the hospital.
A second MSF plane is currently on its way and scheduled to land today in Port- au-Prince at around 10 am local time with additional lifesaving medical material and the rest of the equipment for the hospital. If this plane is also rerouted then the installation of the hospital will be further delayed, in a situation where thousands of wounded are still in need of life saving treatment.
The inflatable hospital includes 2 operating theaters, an intensive care unit, 100-bed hospitalization capacity, an emergency room and all the necessary equipment needed for sterilizing material.
MSF teams are currently working around the clock in 5 different hospitals in Port-au-Prince, but only 2 operating theaters are fully functional, while a third operating theater has been improvised for minor surgery due to the massive influx of wounded and lack of functional referral structures.
Who the heck is in charge ? I’m just hoping the diversion wasn’t caused by Hillary Clinton’s visit ? While she brought much needed supplies also, perhaps the next admin official can catch a hop with a medical cargo plane !
I normally leave the lovely, and normally charming, First Ladies out of my fashion screed, but WTF Michelle? You are disembarking AF1 not a Delta Regional Commuter. Hello, paparazzi alert ! Maybe I wouldn’t be so catty if the media hadn’t annointed you the next Jackie of Fashion Trends, so I’m sure they’ll miss this one. By the way, Malia looks great in her age appropriate tween style…..listen to her instead of your slobbering media lapdogs!
Let’s not forget those fine “journalists” Tina Brown and Andrea Mitchell can imply Hillary’s “bad hair day” or “doesn’t have time to get to the gym (cattyspeak for: she’s getting fat!)”. Ok ladies, have at it….Mrs. Obama’s having a bad hair day and needs to get to the gym! Yeh, riiiiiight.
When I heard Disney World, Inc was upgrading it’s popular rides to draw more attendance, well, I couldn’t help but make a few suggestions. So, quick, before the Disney CEO’s are fired….watch….don’t blink….and don’t pay attention to that earworm, it will go away in about … never !
