“Oh, Look at the Katrina!”*

From CNN NEWS ALERT:

President Bush returning to Washington two days ahead of schedule to help oversee Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts, White House announces. Details soon.

Yeah, I guess it would be a little gauche to try to “oversee” recovery efforts from the “ranch” while on vacation.

Isn’t it amazing how Cindy Sheehan and the liberals managed to arrange for the worst natural disaster in modern memory to provoke the president to do something besides cut brush and address groups of pre-selected fawning sycophants? Our powers are amazing.

*A take-off on my perception of the right wing’s diversionary tactic. Corner them on something and they quickly change the subject: “Oh, look at the kitty!”
