so the government released some oil because of the hurricane. good work, government. everyone: back to your suvs.
and, in case you didn't think we had a president to be proud of:
The announcement came as President Bush returned to Washington today, two days ahead of schedule, to manage the Federal response to the storm, amid expectations that he would try to visit the devastated regions in the next few days.
TWO DAYS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE. Citizens of the United States, the president has bravely sacrificed 48 hours of his extremely limited vacation time to get back to washington and start squeegeeing off the Gulf Coast. what a guy. (would it have been so hard for him to head back, say, the day it hit? too much to ask? yeah, you're right.)
