Talking points for the Bush Administration

Mr. President, I would encourage your media relations handlers to participate wholeheartedly in publicizing New Orleans' seemingly intractable predicament. Don't worry about all the television footage. It helps you. Later, when the country does secure the situation, the images and psychological impact of this catastrophe will be useful in rebuilding political support for the Iraq War. Americans will see the capability of our nation to rebuild a devasted area. Citizens will be more apt to place faith in our ability to do likewise in war-ravaged Iraq.

I am such a cynic.
