A Failed Rescue

I don't like to send readers away right after they get here, but go read Tom Engelhardt on the dramatic mission to rescue George W. Bush from New Orleans.

After all, imagine — at whatever the cost was — moving the President of the United States with his own lights, generators, and camouflaging into the very heart of a distressed city; making a tiny slice of it look almost as good as new; and then leaving without having done a thing for a soul. As they used to say in my childhood - about drawings in which five-legged cows floated through clouds - what's wrong with this picture?

Could it be the picturemakers?
