Dysfunctional Louisiana

By now most folks have heard ex-FEMA director Mike Brown's comments about Louisiana. During the testimony on the abysmal response by FEMA to hurricane Katrina, Brown — in the process of blaming everyone but himself for the failure of his organization — said, "My biggest mistake was not recognizing by Saturday that Louisiana was dysfunctional."

Tonight on The Daily Show, after playing Brown's clip, Jon Stewart replied, "You didn't know Louisiana was dysfunctional? Have you ever been to Louisiana? It's a miracle the state's name is right on the license plate!"

Alana and I both laughed so hard we almost fell off our chairs. Although, come to think of it, it was more ironic than funny...!
