"But the federal government's lethal ineptitude wasn't just a consequence of Mr. Bush's personal inadequacy; it was a consequence of ideological hostility to the very idea of using government to serve the public good.

Why should we be surprised that when we needed a government solution, it wasn't forthcoming?"

"Shirt-sleeves rolled up, W. finally landed in Hell yesterday and chuckled about his wild boozing days in "the great city" of N'Awlins. He was clearly moved. "You know, I'm going to fly out of here in a minute," he said on the runway at the New Orleans International Airport, "but I want you to know that I'm not going to forget what I've seen." Out of the cameras' range, and avoided by W., was a convoy of thousands of sick and dying people, some sprawled on the floor or dumped on baggage carousels at a makeshift M*A*S*H unit inside the terminal."

as a nurse it was the most horrific thing I have ever seen- ever...sick people stacked on the baggage racks..it was wretched...And Bush making jokes about partying down in NOLA- I thought he was drunk...CNN ran a split screen while he talked- with awful scenes on one side and Bush making inappropriate jokes and comments on the other side...Split Reality...
