Is There No End?

Via the indefatigable Coturnix of many blogs and carnivals including, but not limited to, Science and Politics:

At a news conference, [Nancy] Pelosi, D-Calif., said Bush's choice for head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency had "absolutely no credentials."

She related that she had urged Bush at the White House on Tuesday to fire Michael Brown.

"He said 'Why would I do that?'" Pelosi said.

'"I said because of all that went wrong, of all that didn't go right last week.' And he said 'What didn't go right?'"

"Oblivious, in denial, dangerous," she added. [emphasis added]
Riiiiight. I mean, honestly. What exactly didn't go right? You people are soooo critical. I'd say things went perfectly. In retrospect. No mistakes. Ever.

But at least they're consistent. Patrick Rhode, deputy director of FEMA, called his agency's performance:

"Probably one of the most efficient and effective responses in the country's history."
Probably. I'd say.

And if anyone wants to read up on the blogosphere's take on Katrina, Coturnix has created the most dizzyingly comprehensive amalgamation of links perhaps ever. I kid you not. Record setting. Somebody put him on the payroll or something.
