President Bush really has been caught on the hop again. A tale of two photos: Mississippi Goddamn shows what Bush was up to while people were being rescued from drowned cars.
Here’s a compilation of photos and commentary from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

Had a storm the size of Katrina just had the grace to hold off for a while, it’s quite likely no one would even remember what the Bush administration did two months ago. The national press corps has the attention span of a gnat, and trying to get anyone in Washington to remember longer than a year ago is like asking them what happened in Iznik, Turkey, in A.D. 325.
Just plain political bad luck that, in June, Bush took his little ax and chopped $71.2 million from the budget of the New Orleans Corps of Engineers, a 44 percent reduction.
This, friends, is why we need to pay attention to government policies, not political personalities, and to know whereon we vote. It is about our lives.
