Hurricane Katrina and President Bush

I'm going to refrain from either attacking or defending President Bush on the Hurricane Katrina response until the initial panic has died down and matters are a little clearer. I will say, though that the President's attempt at "humor" was absolutely disgusting - even if the target WAS Trent Lott. (And no, I never in a million years thought I'd find myself defending Trent Lott.) Look, there are thousands of people who are in exactly the same situation as Trent Lott, and they aren't all racist, homophobic bigots. IT ISN'T FUCKING FUNNY.
