too much typing—since 2003



This week in The Onion: What's Bush's first official act after Katrina? Why, making sure reconstruction workers get paid less, of course. And, feeling that disastrous leaks are something his appointee is completely familiar with, Bush puts Karl Rove in charge of reconstruction. Finally, to counter charges of incompetence and encourage his beloved bootstrapping philosophy, Bush says that more authority and power are needed for the federal government and the military. Presumably, such power and authority will be used to overcome their own demonstrated incompetence. (As Josh Marshall says, "show me the instance where the federal government was prevented from doing anything that needed to be done because it lacked the requisite authority.")

Oh wait - all of that is real news, not from The Onion.
