How High's The Water Mama? 3 Feet High and Rising

Jon Stewart covers the floods in the Midwest, speaking genuinely about the kindness of people in Iowa, and mocking the media in normal Daily Show fashion. I've been there too, and I would have to agree with him on Iowa's good-natured people (along with the girls being pretty). That's why it's no surprise that there have very few reports of looting or violence in the affected areas. The Prez paid a visit today to Cedar Rapids, and domestic humanitarian assistance from the normally diabolical federal government is a legitimate function during times of disaster, IMHO, ergo no snark in this post. The Tension has info on the National Guard helping out in the affected areas.
