Bush and Katrina, ships passing in the night.

Via Crooks and Liars, “Bush on Katrina“:

“Counselor Bartlett made up a DVD of the newscasts so Bush could see them in their entirety as he flew down to the Gulf Coast the next morning on Air Force One.”

Pretty well insulated from reality, just as a true royal should be, a courtier had to make a DVD of the news so that the chief executive could get a clue about what was going on in the real world. Wow. Let them eat cake, indeed.
