My Rant 2

(We interrupt the latest series of non-verbal digital manipulations for some spleen.)

And it gets worse. It’s not bad enough that W has cut taxes for his buddies, increased government spending more than any other president since LBJ (can you even spell “veto” Georgie), sunk lives and money into a war he didn’t know how to wage for a reason he still to this day lies about, handed out contracts to Haliburton and other buds, and most recently displayed a callousness and/or incompetence concerning Katrina (with the underlying problem of appointing an incompetent "boss’s ex-roomate" to head up FEMA in a time of war no less), it’s now being reported, as if it’s a real surprise but still you might have thought this time after all the hooplah and television he’d have thought twice about it, the Feds are handing out Katrina recovery monies to, drum roll please (and roll out the CNN report)
At least two major corporate clients of lobbyist Joe Allbaugh, President Bush's former campaign manager and a former head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, have already been tapped to start recovery work along the battered Gulf Coast.

One is Shaw Group Inc. and the other is Halliburton Co. subsidiary Kellogg Brown and Root. Vice President Dick Cheney is a former head of Halliburton.

Bechtel National Inc., a unit of San Francisco-based Bechtel Corp., has also been selected by FEMA to provide short-term housing for people displaced by the hurricane. Bush named Bechtel's CEO to his Export Council and put the former CEO of Bechtel Energy in charge of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation.
Can you spell IMPEACH THE BASTARD! (Excuse my French, but really, shouldn't we just throw out the whole damned bunch of them Dems and Repubs and start all over: ELECTORAL REVOLUTION!!!!)
