Which city is next?

Since the Bush administration thinks "damage control" means shifting the blame for their criminal incompetence, please permit me to rant about the three-ton elephant in the room that just shit on our brand new Pier One rug...

Twice, TWICE, the country has been hit with an unprecedented disaster and twice this coke-addled cretin responded to it by hiding under the bed. How many more times does this have to happen? What more proof do we need? George W. Bush is not a good president. He cannot, and could never, handle the job. The sooner we all come to grips with this the sooner we can minimize the damage he can do in the last three long, long years he'll be in charge. I'm not quite sure how to get started, but it seems the most logical steps are 1) encouraging local and state governments to reject federal mandates (as VA is planning to do with NCLB and the northeast is now doing with the Kyoto accords) and 2) working to ensure the Dems take over Congress in 2006. Yeah, I can find some of the Dems distasteful from time to time, but our survival is at stake.

And truth be told, I live in a smallish city, so chances are the next catastrophe won't hit here. I just love this country too damn much to see it get hurt again. But if I lived within 50 miles of a major metropolitan area, I'd seriously be thinking about my survival right now...
