Bush Canceling Vacation to Focus on Katrina

It's looking like hundreds of people dead from Hurricane Katrina, so Bush is taking the unprecedented step of leaving vacation early to handle the crisis. No word on if Cindy Sheehan & he will be teaming up to help with the sandbags.

@ Think Progress, Nico says: "And even as one of the strongest storms in recorded history rocked the Gulf Coast, President Bush decided to continue his vacation, visiting the Pueblo El Mirage RV and Golf Resort in El Mirage, Ariz., to hawk his Medicare drug benefit plan." (Some compare and contrast pictures here, too, for your enjoyment.)

@ View From Above, Glenn says "Wanna bet
...that some yo-yo is going to claim that George W. Bush couldn't come back to Washington immediately to deal with the mess of Katrina because Cindy Sheehan kept him cornered inside his ranch?"

@ Human Voices, Capt. Fogg says: "George Bush has finally found something important enough to disturb his vacation. He intends to cut the 5 weeks of brush cutting and bike riding and confrontation avoiding short by two days."
