Beyond Infuriating

How pathetic is it really that Bush has to ask Condaleeza to go to the bathroom. I couldn't bear to listen to him speak tonight about the woeful state of the preparedness of this great nation. It is beyond infuriating that Neo-Cons will now block any investigation into the New Orleans "rescue" operation. They will no doubt set up their own investigation and parrot whatever dubious information they're told to by Karl Rove. Plausible deniability is their game and they have no shame, no heart, and no conscience whatsoever. It's nauseating that these fascists claim to be Christians. As Bill O'Reilly recently said, "the poor of New Orleans are all thugs and drug addicts anyway." Why spend money that could go into the pockets of Halliburton stockholders after they win a huge reconstruction contract? There's a pattern here and those who cannot see it are beyond help.

NEW YORK In what seems destined to become one of the most joked about photos of the month, a well-known Reuters photographer on Wednesday captured President George W. Bush scribbling a note to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during a session at the United Nations. On the note is a message revolving around the need to take a "bathroom break."

The photo, which appeared on Reuters' official photo site, was quickly published all over the Web, though dismissed by some as a likely photoshop special. Others suggested that surely someone must have hacked the Reuters site. But a Reuters spokesman on Thursday told E&P the photo was legit.

"The photographer and editors on this story were looking for other angles in their coverage of this event, something that went beyond the stock pictures of talking heads that these kind of forums usually offer," explained Reuters' Stephen Naru. "This picture certainly does that."
