Where’s Sean?

Sean Penn Sinking

No one has proven that Sean Penn didn’t sink in Iowa.

KDT via Rustmeister:

  • Why aren’t all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons and asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks affected by the floods?
  • Where are the Dixie Chicks, and Sean Penn in his rescue boat?
  • Why isn’t the media asking the tough questions about why the federal government hasn’t solved the problem?
  • Where are all the FEMA trucks and trailers?
  • Why isn’t the Federal Government relocating Iowa people to free hotels in Chicago?
  • When will Spike Lee say that the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines?
  • Where are all the 24/7 lurid news tales of cannibalism and unnecessary drownings?
  • Why did Iowans evacuate so prematurely; why are they not holed up in deathtrap sports centers?

Read all of them at KDT’s.

I think it’s only fair to point out that, for all we know, Sean Penn WAS there with his rescue boat. We can’t rule out the possibility that it sank again but he didn’t get out this time and he’s at the bottom of the river.

Regardless, Iowa seems to be getting by fine without him.

  1. I was visiting family in the southeast Iowa flood area last week. In one of the towns folks were still working on the sandbag line. In the parking lot – a good-old-boy 4-wheel-drive pickup, two Iowa Guard Humvees and an Amish horse & buggy. Everybody working together, no sign of the Feds or anyone standing around waiting for the Feds to rescue them.

  2. Iowa Mystery From a citizen in Indiana concerning recent Midwest Responded to by a white guy who had his house flooded in New Orleans While is difficult to respond to people who have been on a ‘geode hunt’, measure distance in minutes, think ethanol makes your truck ‘run a lot better’ and drink ‘pop’, I will do my best. Q- Where are all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks affected by the floods? A- Jeff Foxworthy says you must be an Iowan if . . . . You’ve never met any celebrities Yeah where are they? Elijah Wood (1981) Born: Cedar Rapids, Iowa on 1/28/1981 Ashton Kutcher (1978) Born: Cedar Rapids, Iowa on 2/7/1978 Ron Livingston (1968) Born: Cedar Rapids, Iowa on 6/5/1968 Terry Farrell (1963) Born: Cedar Rapids, Iowa on 11/19/1963 Michael Emerson (1955) Born: Cedar Rapids, Iowa I think they are getting ready for Farm Aid. At least Harry Connick Jr. and other New Orleans celebrity natives showed up for their own people. Q- Where is all the media asking the tough questions about why the Federal Government hasn’t solved the problem? Asking where the FEMA trucks (and trailers) are? A- Why are the recent flood victims begging for 90% of the funds versus the 75% norm? The hard working boot strap pulling myth: The counties hit in Iowa actually receive more welfare subsidy per person than people did in pre storm New Orleans. In addition to this welfare figure, Iowans are quite dependent on another form of public handout: agricultural subsidies. Indeed, Iowa – that place of hard working, self-reliant folks who are now being contrasted with the supposedly government-dependent laggards in New Orleans – receives the second highest amount of agricultural crop subsidies of any state in the country and by the way, FEMA arrived day 1 as they were already in tornado zones nearby. Didn’t most Iowans just hook their trailers up to their John Deere and move them anyway? Q- Why isn’t the Federal Government relocating Iowans to free hotels in Chicago? A- Because they are moving them to subsidized hotels much closer. Q- When will Spike Lee say that the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines? A- Actually one person in the 4 hour documentary said that. Q- Where are Sean Penn and the Dixie Chicks? A- You tell me. You think and write like a tabloid reader. Q- Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes and big screen television sets? A- There are no shoes or TVs in Iowa Q- When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a ‘vanilla’ Iowa, because that’s the way God wants it? (I remember hearing the opposite about New Orleans. My jaw dropped.) A- He has already coined some others so let him rest. Iowa: It’s easy to spell Iowa: We Do Amazing Things with Corn Iowa: We think the stock market has a fence around it. Iowa: The flood history of the area can be seen on our living room walls Q- Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of cannibalism? A-Cannibalism? I guess Geraldo and Fox News learned that since all of the rape and murder stories from NOLA were pure garbage that they wouldn’t dare mention the rash of incoming bestiality stories. Apparently married cousins have been forced from their homes and there are thousands of people stranded in a football stadium with no food, drinking water, or working toilets. But the media does not know how to get to any Iowa football stadiums. Q- Where are the people declaring that George Bush hates white, rural people? A-He doesn’t. George Bush Hates Wet People!!! Q- How come in two weeks you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again? I know the answer, but I dare not say it out loud. A-Because the white hood you are wearing doesn’t allow you read newspapers or watch the news? But seriously: Are you kidding me! Don’t disrespect the over 1800 dead and their living relatives with this crap. Katrina was the costliest natural disaster in US history, both monetarily ($81 billion) and in loss of life. Katrina caused 53 different levee breaches in greater NOLA submerging eighty percent of the city. The storm surge also devastated the coasts of MS and AL. It was the deadliest hurricane since the ’28 Okeechobee hurricane. Further, after death toll, 705 people remain categorized as missing in Louisiana. The disaster declarations covered 90,000 square miles (233,000 km-

  3. I’m curious about where the white man from New Orleans got his statistics about the amount of government money received by Iowa farmers vs. that received by citizens of New Orleans. I wonder if they came from the same source as his other cute comments. I am so weary of ridiculous people who cry ‘racist’ every time anyone asks a question or points out a fact.
