    This is surreal. The quality was unbelievably terrible.

      A piffle of concern about Katrina and then onto damage control over the failed Iraqi constitutional process for the rest of the skit.

      There is oodles he could be doing RIGHT FUCKING NOW to mitigate the coming disaster (like ordering the staging of the regional NG MASH units to pope AFB) and he pisses it away for political cover????

        about our national security, he'd have poured money into true domestic security measures, the American Red Cross and other relief agencies, and our National Guard with a mission to preserve and protect here at home.

        Instead, he chose to use 9/11 to PR a neo-conservative global marketing strategy and to spill American blood and money into the sands of Iraq.

        Now the people of Louisiana are facing a natural disaster, one heightened by global warming, without the necessary resources to protect themselves.

        Louisiana National Guard who signed on to protect their state as their primary mission will now bear an additional burden as they serve their stop/loss and extended duties and are suffering the anxiety, right now, of wondering if their homes, their friends, and their families are safe.
