(A little late due to Blogger database maintenance - hey, it happens)...
OK, so let me get this all straight…
Colin Powell, who lied to us about Saddam Hussein’s capability to deliver chemical weapons tipped onto nuclear warheads and thus destroy large portions of our population (which he later called “the lowest point of his life”…waaaaah!), helping to cause the war in Iraq (remember?) which has led to the deaths of almost 1,900 of our people and thousands of innocent Iraqis, is now trying to re-establish himself as some sort of statesman with credibility by telling us that there were failures on all level of government before, during and after Hurricane Katrina?
Gee, maybe there is a new job awaiting him with Bushco after all! Let’s appoint him “UNDERSECRETARY OF THE BLEEPING OBVIOUS,” OK??!!
And Vice Admiral Thad Allen is taking over for “Brownie” so he can go home and broker the sale of more Arabian horses, right?
Oh, and The First Lady decides to interact with Negroes also (better wear your hairnet to keep cooties out of the food, Mrs. Bush…and by the way, the racist element of this whole tragedy was put into place by your husband’s administration and its followers long before Katrina hit).
I guess that about sums up the latest developments (I’ll try to debunk more big lies as the Repug echo chamber proceeds to manufacture them…and speak of the devil, go to The Daily Kos to read about Kyra Phillips’ obnoxious reaction to a caller who criticized her for her interview with Nancy Pelosi yesterday).
And last but definitely not least, Cenk nails it again.
Update 9/9: You go, Al!
Update 9/11: I just got a thought. I'm glad I supported the Kerry-Edwards campaign last year, of course, but how clueless was Kerry not to make the politicization of FEMA an issue in the election? Surely he must have known that Joe Allbaugh, a member of the Bushco "inner circle," and Mike Brown were nothing but typical carpetbaggers with no experience in disaster management. Of course, this ties back to the stupid battle within the Kerry campaign between the Clintonites who wanted to rerun the '90s campaigns and the Kerry staffers who actually understood the mood of the voters and the issues they cared about most, which has a lot to do with why he lost (of course, there are other reasons I and others have mentioned already that we can rehash at another time).
