President Bush has just given a stirring address on the Katrina disaster*:

“I appreciate your questions, and I understand the devastationalism. The response was unacceptable, but Brownie did a heckuva job. It’s hard work, and we’re making progress. Heh heh. Now is not the time to point fingers. We’ve got to stay the course and project strength. Let me finish. We won’t negotiate with Mother Nature, and I hear she might be sending more hurricanes our way—bring ’em on. We must not forget 9/11. We're in for a long struggle, and I think Louisianianesians understand that…and so do Americans. Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream. American families are a hardworking people, and they’re working hard to rebuild the rubbles. They understand that the benefits of helping somebody is beneficial. And one of the things we've got to make sure that we do is anything. We’re making progress. Heh heh. We're making the right decisions to bring the solution to an end. There were big decisions to be made, and I did the right decisions, so that soon, the victims of hurricane Kertroona will be able to buy stuff again, which is good, because I believe part of a hopeful society is one in which somebody owns something. That’s liberty. That’s freedom. Let me finish. You’ve got to understand that even though some people say the brown-skinned people of New Orleans don’t want food and water and liberty and freedom, they do, and you’ve got to understand that I am going to do the right decisions to make sure the hard work gets done to give them a tax cut. And if not them, then other people who aren’t so brown and wet. God bless America. Now watch this drive.”

* No he hasn't. I'm just a bitch.
