Don't get stuck on stupid - awesome quote for the day
I heard this great soundbite from General Honore, the John-Wayne dude in charge of cleaning up after Katrina. Yesterday, he was in a press conference talking about the new storm, Rita, and telling reporters to move on from placing blame for Katrina. He told them not to get stuck in the past storm, but to move ahead and figure out what to do about Rita.

Then, some reporter ignored completely what he just said, and asked again about what went wrong with Katrina, blah, blah, blah. General Honore responded, "You're getting stuck on stupid. Next question."

I love that guy. I can't find anything written about that press conference on the Internet, but I heard it with my own ears. Anyway, here's more about him.



    Don't Get Stuck On Stupid
    I have to say this is a refreshing change,
    “You are stuck on stupid, I’m not going to answer that question”

    Mind you this is not the ONLY time the Press has gotten chewed out by this man

    I have a link to an earlier video where he called the press coverage BS
