From The New York Times:
IOWA CITY — Try as he might, President Bush cannot escape the haunting memory of Hurricane Katrina.
Mr. Bush toured flood-stricken areas here on Thursday, the latest in a string of disaster-zone visits he has made in his role as comforter in chief.
As always, he gave solace and prayers and hopeful words; he called Iowans a “tough-minded people” who would “come back better.” As always, he met the governor and local mayors, pored over maps, dropped in on a shelter, promised federal aid. As always, he brought with him R. David Paulison, the administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, a man so skilled at Hurricane Katrina comparisons that he no longer has to be asked.

Oh, kids!! Didja watch the video of John Cornyn that they played at the Texas State Republican Convention in Houston? Hi-larious!!! You can watch it at Burnt Orange. Go ahead, kids, watch it. I’ll wait for you.
All done? Well, it seems that Senator Corny (no, that’s not a typo) realizes that it didn’t go over very well, so I thought I would help him out (because you know I am always helpful to the Rethugs, kids) and rewrite it for him. I hope he likes this version! 😀
To the tune of Big Bad John, written by Jimmy Dean (Johnny Cash version):
He strolls through the Senate, like he owns the place,
A swagger in his step, and a smirk on his face,
Narrow of mind, and flappin’ his lip,
But he’s nasty and stupid, moronic and flip, so screw John.
Screw you, John

Oh, kids!! Cindy Lou is at it again! Remember when she claimed Rachael Ray’s recipe as her own? Well, it seems that they don’t make a pill to cure stealing. Well, kids, I guess that’s the way the mccookie crumbles.
From the New York Daily News:
Cindy McCain’s been caught with her hand in the cookie jar again.
McCain’s recipe for oatmeal-butterscotch cookies, published on the Family Circle Web site earlier in the month, appears to be an almost exact replica of a Hershey’s recipe.
From the Press-Register:
State and local emergency officials said they are looking into plans to provide ice following a hurricane after federal officials said earlier this year that they would no longer supply it.
FEMA head R. David Paulison surprised many coastal leaders when he announced in April that the agency would only distribute ice for medical emergencies or life-threatening situations.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has traditionally provided ice to disaster victims, particularly in areas with power outages.

President Bush has admitted to The Times that his gun-slinging rhetoric made the world believe that he was a “guy really anxious for war” in Iraq. He said that his aim now was to leave his successor a legacy of international diplomacy for tackling Iran.
In an exclusive interview, he expressed regret at the bitter divisions over the war and said that he was troubled about how his country had been misunderstood.
Phrases such as “bring them on” or “dead or alive”, he said, “indicated to people that I was, you know, not a man of peace”.
