Bush says that his administration is enlightened and colorblind...

... maybe colorblind insofar as seeing the red STOP signs nature give us, but ...

September 12,2005 | NEW ORLEANS -- President Bush denied Monday there was any racial component to people being left behind after Hurricane Katrina, despite suggestions from some critics that the response would have been quicker if so many of the victims hadn't been poor and black.

"The storm didn't discriminate and neither will the recovery effort," Bush said. "The rescue efforts were comprehensive. The recovery will be comprehensive."

Well, the storm DID discriminate, de facto against the poor, the sick, and the weak -- in fact -- oh what a coincidence! -- the very same people this Boosh administration has flipped the finger to since day one. Color doesn't matter -- the immortal question of unprincipled people is this: "DO WE BOMB IT OR KISS ITS ASS?"
Doesn't matter what color you are (and licking Condoleeza's boots when she cracks the whip doesn't make him a paragon of virtue) -- it's who can punk us and who can we punk?

But to be fair, perhaps he's not evil, just too stupid and stubborn and too bought and paid for to see it.

"I ran out of gas. I had a flat tire.
I didn't have enough money for cab fare.
My tux didn't come back from the cleaners.
An old friend came in from out of town.
Someone stole my car.
There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts!
It wasn't my fault, I swear to god!"
John Belushi as Jake Blues in The Blues Brothers Movie
