What the Katrina (or as another out-of-touch Bush family member called it, Corinna) debacle symbolizes about this administration:

1) Rampant cronyism.
2) The limits of privatization (Bush has been shrinking FEMA for years, looking to privatize it; remember this re Social Security).
3) Haves vs. have nots. (Reward the rich with tax cuts; Iraq fought by the have nots; ultra-stiff bankruptcy bill passed; chance of audits MUCH lower for the rich than for average citizens)
4) Inept, scant planning. (Arrogance? Lazy? Incompetence? All??)
5) Accept no blame; be not accountable; finger point.
6) If cornered, lie.
7) Etc. etc.
