09/07/2005 Archived Entry: "Bush to investigate himself"

I SAID I WASN'T GOING TO COMMENT ON THE POLITICS OF KATRINA any more. But really. George W. Bush -- George W. Bush! -- is going ot head up an investigation into the fedgov's handling of the disaster??? That's like Ken Lay investigating Enron. Or Alan Greenspan doing an impartial critique of the Federal Reserve Board. Or Jeffrey Dahmer being the judge at his own murder trial.

What's weirder is that the media is reporting this with a straight face. Treating it as serious, plausible news. Only NPR's Daniel Schorr gave this announcement what it deserved when he deadpanned about Mr. Bush, "I hope he's not too hard on himself."
