When George W. Bush took 2 days to arrive in New Orleans, Kanye West infamously accused him of “not caring about black people.”  The lamestream media tsk-tsked and said it was over-the-top, but basically treated it as though it was understandable and Kanye had a point– even if he was intemperate.  In fact, Democrats and the media acted as though the statement were true, they just left it in the subtext of their remarks most of the time.

(It wasn’t until he pulled his embarrassing Taylor Swift stunt, that the media really turned on Kanye West, having built him up as all but a poet Laureate in the meantime.)

So now, an American city–whose percentage of white citizens is virtually the same as the percentage of black citizens in New Orleans’ was before the deluge– is under water, and Barack Obama has not uttered a word, much less visited, for a week.

Interestingly, Taylor Swift donated $500,000 the other day to the Nashville relief efforts.  No word from Kanye…

Rhonda Robinson has chronicled the media and political inattention to Nashville’s disastrous flood better– and from closer–than I can.  So well, in fact, that Rush Limbaugh read her entire column yesterday, which led to a phone call from country star John Rich on yesterday’s show.

The private relief efforts from country music stars is admirable and in the best American tradition.  But until they can come up with a politically correct villain or victim, they aren’t going to rake in the really BIG bucks– or rate Presidential attention.
