The Young Turks, August 21, 2013

Ugh. I want to show this to all the bipartisan fetishists and just ask them how, how??? anyone is expected to come to some sort of agreement with people this freakin' stupid:

According to a Public Policy Polling survey, 29 percent of Louisiana Republicans say President Obama is more to blame for the botched executive branch response to Hurricane Katrina while just 28 percent blamed George W. Bush. A plurality of 44 percent said they were unsure who was more responsible, even though Hurricane Katrina occurred over three years before Obama entered the presidency when he was still a freshman Senator.

Of course, this won't get reported on the mainstream news because it hurts their narrative of both sides being equally wrong.

Can you help us out?
