Am I the only one who thinks that Bush went to Iraq so that if it's a bad storm and the government does as well as they did last year, he can say, "I was in Iraq. Helping soldiers. We're at war. I'm a war President. Heh heh heh."
And, as I've posted a couple of other places, I think it would be a good idea for the Weather people to name ALL the storms with Latino names. That way the Republicans might think they are illegal immigrants and actually DO something about them this time.
