Who’ll get fired?

Posted by on September 5 at 12:22 PM

Who’ll get fired for Katrina? No one.

Bush won’t fire the head of FEMA, that useless, lying assholethe man who couldn’t run a horseshow!or the head of Homeland Security, or anyone else. If no one has been fired for the mess in Iraq, no one is going to get fired for letting all those poor blacks drown, starve, and die of dehydration in New Orleans.

And here’s the reason why Bush can’t fire anyone: The charge against the Bush administration’s response to the disaster in New Orleans is incompetence. But asking Bush to fire people for incompetence is like asking the Queen of England to do away with hereditary titlesit puts the monarch in an awkward position, you know?
