    I'll say it again: when a guy who thinks government itself is a worthless endeavour is elected to run said government, don't be surprised when that government becomes worthless.

    ...or...

    George Bush doesn't care about black people.

    Can these people do anything right? Seriously. Between this and the buildings falling apart in Iraq, I wonder if they aren't just trying to screw this stuff up. Seriously, I'm terrified to find out what they're going to do (or not do) next.

    Sadly, I'm still not surprised in the least.

    $249m to a cruise line? Even if they'd had to use those ships for the five weeks until the free ones arrived from Greece it would have slashed the eventual spend somewhat. And they didn't want to use British search and rescue teams, which are amongst the most experienced in the world?

    WTF? Seriously, that is not government. No wonder Iraq's in such a mess if these are the values being exported.

    I really hope those that were chanting "Four more years" back in 2004 are paying attention.

    Half of them are. The other half are still saying it because poor people are lazy and Saddam was responsible for 9/11. Not sure how this will be spun, but I'm sure it will be.
