DIS ASTER

So, let me get this straight. PresBush is sending his brother Jeb to Indonesia or Thailand or Sri Lanka or whatever the media's geographical shorthand is for this stupefying human calamity, in order to supervise or at least observe the mammoth social and economic resuscitation procedures, because, and note the quotes, "He has had experience with disasters."
Yeah, well, if that's your basic hiring requirement, then let's flesh out the team with such disaster vets as Don Rumsfeld, whoever currently heads the DEA, the lame duck Democratic Party brass, Joe Torre, the York family (and 49ers beat reporters), and the head of NBC programming. Give this team six months, and the tidal wave will start to look beneficial by comparison.
Clearly, W engineered the sending of Jeb to tsunami ground zero for the obvious reason: that Georgie might move up one seat toward Bar the Impaler at the New Year's Day Dinner Table. Who, after all, are we kidding?

Bar the Impaler is very fine. I'm turning you in.
