Send Bush to Abu Ghraib Award
"For many of this countryís citizens, the mantra has been, as we were taught in social studies it should always be, whether or not I voted for this President, he is still my President. I suspect anybody who had to give him that benefit of the doubt stopped doing so last week. I suspect, also, a lot of his supporters, looking ahead to Ď08, are wondering how they can distance themselves from the two words which will define his government, our government: New Orleans. For him, it is a shame, in all senses of the word. A few changes of pronouns in there and he might not have looked so much like a 21st century Marie Antoinette."
ó MSNBCís Keith Olbermann, September 5 Countdown.


"After meeting with Louisiana officials last week, Reverend Jesse Jackson said, quote, ĎMany black people feel that their race, their property conditions and their voting patterns have been a factor in the response.í He continued, quote, ĎIím not saying that myself.í Then Iíll say it: If the majority of the hardest hit victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans were white people, they would not have gone for days without food and water, forcing many to steal for mere survival. Their bodies would not have been left to float in putrid water. They would have been rescued and relocated a hell of a lot faster than this, period....The President has put himself at risk by visiting the troops in Iraq, but didnít venture anywhere near the Superdome or the convention center, where thousands of victims, mostly black and poor, needed to see that he gave a damn."
ó Contributor Nancy Giles on CBSís Sunday Morning, September 4.


And the winner is...
CNNís Jack Cafferty: "What should Karl Rove do if he is indicted?...He might want to, he might want to get measured for one of those extra large orange jump suits, Wolf, because looking at old Karl, Iím not sure that heíd, theyíd be able to zip him into the regular size one."
CNNís Wolf Blitzer: "Well, heís actually lost some weight. I think heís in pretty good shape."
Cafferty: "Oh, well then, maybe just the regular off the shelf large would handle it for him."
Blitzer: "Yeah. But, you know, itís still a big if. Itís still a big if."
"Oh, I understand. Iím, Iím just hoping, you know. I love, I love to see those kinds of things happen. It does wonders for me."
ó CNNís The Situation Room, October 17.
