I Can't Stand It Anymore
(Beware: Post contains language your mother and mine wouldn't approve of.)

This makes me sick.
Top Democrats expressed unhappiness at the announced congressional investigation, to be run by a panel comprised of more Republicans than Democrats. The committee "is not truly bipartisan ... cannot write legislation, and will not have bipartisan subpoena power," Pelosi said.

In a letter to one Republican, Reid pressed for a wide-ranging investigation and asked: "How much time did the president spend dealing with this emerging crisis while he was on vacation? Did the fact that he was outside of Washington, D.C., have any effect on the federal government's response?"

McClellan brushed aside Reid's suggestion, saying the senator would not have engaged in "such personal attacks" if he were aware of Bush's efforts both before and after the storm.

Pelosi, speaking at a news conference, said Brown had "absolutely no credentials" when Bush picked him to run FEMA.

She related that she urged Bush at the White House on Tuesday to fire Brown.

"He said, 'Why would I do that?'" Pelosi said.

"I said because of all that went wrong, of all that didn't go right last week.' And he said 'What didn't go right?'"

"Oblivious, in denial, dangerous," she added.

McClellan disputed Pelosi's account of the meeting, and later, Brown sidestepped when asked whether he had offered his resignation.

It fell to Ken Mehlman, head of the Republican Party, to counterattack. "While countless Americans are pulling together to lend a helping hand, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are pointing fingers in a shameless effort to tear us apart," he said.
"What didn't go right?" ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?

"Tear us apart?" This country needs to be torn apart. We're being governed by a mentally ill idiot and a party dedicated to whitewashing his serial failures by lying, and on a scale unprecedented in human history. It's a banana republic with better TV channels. What, precisely, is the value of keeping it together?

The whole bunch of them--from Bush, Chertoff, and Brown to McClellan and Mehlman--can thank their lucky stars there's no such thing as justice, because if there was, they'd be swinging from goddamn lampposts. As would their enablers in the media. And as for the 54 million idiots who are directly responsible for them thanks to the choice they made in the voting booth last November--fuck them too.

Screw it. I'm going to secede from the Union. And this blog will be on hiatus until I figure out how.
