The Bus Myth De-Bunked

Finally, Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco explained why New Orleans' school buses weren't deployed during the Hurricane Katrina evacuation. This has got to be one of the righties' longest-running "arguments of mass distraction" and it needed to be cleared up.

Turns out Blanco was told not to use them because they weren't air conditioned and the feds promised to send buses with a/c right away. Four days later, while residents were sick and dying, they finally arrived.

Here are her comments.

Additionally, there were not 2,000 buses, but 267 (school) buses, 70 of which were not running properly. There were only 164 rapid transit buses as well, far below the wing-nut assertion of 2,000. Oh well, what do you expect from cry-baby conservatives? Lies, lies, lies!
