The Wind Beneath My Cheeks

Since they had already committed their resources, hoping for a Cat 5 barnstormer, the esteemed tools of the corporate media not only made sure to stay through the flooded streets and downed power lines of the slightly-petered-out Category 3 Rita, but they went ahead and aired their special hurricane specials Saturday morning and Saturday night.

Of course, this allowed to not even have to pretend to pay scant attention to the 100,000 or so American citizens who marched en masse on their nation's capital, to protest a policy built on misdirection and obfuscation, and apparently maintained on happy thought and finger-crossing. Way to go, guys. Nicely done.

As if that wasn't enough (and by God, dontcha think it oughta be), it seems that Himself's hands-on Helpy Helperton trip to the front lines in Texas got squashed, not only 'cause he'd be in the way of people who were actually doing something useful, but because the weather wasn't grim enough anymore:

Another White House official involved in preparing Mr. Bush's way noted that with the sun shining so brightly in San Antonio, the images of Mr. Bush from here might not have made it clear to viewers that he was dealing with an approaching storm.

You know, I think it's time we were all united on referring to this entrenching implement as a spade. Bush is as clueless as they come, clearly. He seriously thinks that people were pissed because he wasn't in New Orleans shakin' hands and huggin' black folks. It does not even occur to him that people just figured that maybe, maybe, he'd be slightly more useful pulling the levers of power back in Warshington, than playing grab-ass with John McCain in Arizona and shilling what's left of his Medicare scam in San Diego.

This is your do-nothing moron, values voters. The rest of us are going to make sure you suck on it for the next three years, and send you trudging back to your caves once and for all. We refuse to surrender what's left of this country to your retard gay-marriage paranoia and creationism bullshit. Put that in your Bible and smoke it.

Actually, I don't get the sense that the country at large has come to its senses with respect to this administration. No. Given the chance, most (95% plus, I'd venture) would vote for the hacks again. Not that voting matters.

As far as the anti-war coverage is concerned, I think John Q. Public got the gist of it. It's better that he didn't see the nitty gritty details of who was involved and what precisely was said. I saw the details and they were cringeworthy about half the time (would you dispute that?), so I'm cool with the meager reportage. That may change in the coming days. I'd expect for some enterprising talk show hosts to highlight the lowlights throughout the week.
