I'm so bent out of shape I can't do a damned thing. the more I hear about the Gulf Coast the more flipped out I become but I can't bring myself to turn it off because it seems unfair somehow: nobody there gets to turn it off.

I have other things to be doing right now but all I can think about is taking GWB and putting him in an attic of a flooded house with no water or food for five days. here is his compassionate response to the decimation of the city and the region:

""We got a lot of rebuilding to do.... the good news is and it's hard for some to see it now but out of this chaos is going to come a fantastic gulf coast... out of the rubbles of Trent Lott's house -- the guy lost his entire house -- there's going to be fantastic house. I look forward to sitting on the porch."

you can find more at but apparently this is from a press briefing not long ago in Mobile.

I'm sorry if it seems untoward to be politicizing tragedy but I can't abstract out our incompetent leadership from the overall catastrophic equation. they simply are too much of the picture to be able to ignore, and especially as an urban dweller, I find GWB's attitude towards the destruction of an entire american city to be simply obscene.
