Andrew Sullivan is spot-on

Today on the Daily Dish:

"'The good news is - and it's hard for some to see it now - that out of this chaos is going to come a fantastic Gulf Coast, like it was before. Out of the rubbles of Trent Lott's house -- he's lost his entire house - there's going to be a fantastic house. And I'm looking forward to sitting on the porch.' (Laughter)." - president George W. Bush, today. Just think of that quote for a minute; and the laughter that followed. The poor and the black are dying, dead, drowned and desperate in New Orleans and elsewhere. But the president manages to talk about the future "fantastic" porch of a rich, powerful white man who only recently resigned his position because he regretted the failure of Strom Thurmond to hold back the tide of racial desegregation.

George Bush makes me ill.

WTF? I had to check and see if that were serious. So very awful.

Yeah, I almost didn't believe it either. And then I remembered him jetting around the country with his tail between his legs on 9/11. So, I guess, to be expected...

And, I think the first comment on this post represents my first piece ever of comment spam. :)
