A bone to pick...


Ok, so I admit I have voted on the Republican line at least once in my life (something local, fear not) but I am just about nuts with the assertion that, unlike the Katrina response, Bush handled 9/11 with determination and force of character. Whaaa...? For those of us who smelled the acrid cloud of smoke drifting from lower Manhattan to other parts of the city - and saw the city pull together in the aftermath without government intervention - we still remember how long it took for Bush to come out of hiding after reading a story to some school children that fateful morning. How to fix that faux pas? Grab onto the nearest NYFD firefighter once you get to the WTC site! No wonder most people in New York City voted for someone else than Bush during the last election! Come to think about it, what did Bush do after days of failing New Orleans residents? Hmmm...

I'd like to think this Bush character is 'done', politically and otherwise, but the corporate PR types who inhabit his camp work really hard to spin him the hero, no matter how he fucks up. And what's with that gunslinger walk...?
