WASHINGTON — President Bush, facing blistering criticism for his administration's response to Hurricane Katrina, said Friday "the results are not acceptable.''
No fucking shit, Sherlock.
Up until last night, I intentionally did not watch any coverage of the Katrina aftermath, not out of denial, but out of self-preservation. I knew it would simultaneously break my heart and whip me into a rage of epic proportions. Last night’s "Prime Time" special on NBC proved me right.
There have been many occasions on which I have wanted to choke the Texas accent out of our fine president with my bare hands, but every one of them pales in comparison to this.
is what happens when you cut infrastructure funding.
is what happens when a disaster strikes while the NATIONAL guard has been sent half a world away to fucking IRAQ.
is what happens when you allow corporate greed to destroy the environment’s natural protections.
Is what happens when you try to run the country while on vacation in goddam Texas.
People are really and truly dying of dehydration on the streets of 21st-century America. What exactly is it going to take for this administration to get its head out of its collective ass?
