Larry Beinhart continues to pursue the myth of Bushco incompetence

larry is assailing the still-criminal negligence in rehabilitating new orleans and the gulf coast post-katrina, and the failure to capture osama bin laden...

perhaps the assumptions should be questioned... here's what i believe to be the case...

the current administration deliberately failed to effectively respond post-katrina and, likewise, has had no intention of capturing osama bin laden... in the former instance, sending the message that government cannot be relied upon to help us with anything has been undeniably effective... in the second, why take the poster child for endless war out of action...? we are so invested in seeing our government officials as miserably incompetent in their pursuit of the common good that we completely fail to consider the possibility of much darker motives... unless and until we do, the constitutional crisis will continue unaddressed, the unfettered power of the executive will continue to grow, and our country will continue to be transformed into something unrecognizable... and, if unaddressed until 20 january 2009, it may be too late...
