Hurricane Shithead

In case you have to defend the point of how the Bush administration completely fucked up to a conservative idealogue, try this simple talking point:

The Department of Homeland Security and FEMA should have emergency evacuation plans for every American city.

These plans should be in place for potential terrorist attacks with no warning, such as a dirty bomb. Hurricane Katrina, by the way, had several days of warning beforehand. You could call it a fire drill for a terrorist attack, but instead of lining up by the foul pole, the students blamed the school district for ruining their education and set the place on fire on their own. Or some kind of metaphor.

Also, Billmon takes a look at very recent history and discovers that the Bush administration does actually have a plan for dealing with hurricanes, but it requires a specific set of conditions. In honor of Kanye West: Two words/swing state/election year/fucked up.
