We know the plan for the Bushies to is to assign 100% of the blame for Katrina-related planning, evacuation and rescue failures to local officials.
It's kind of morbidly fun to watch the hacks fall into line. What I wonder about people like this is whether they realize they are basically integrity-free operatives, or if they really believe that.
It's also not going to work -- anyone with eyes can see that the failures were legion across the government board -- local, state, federal. Ultimately, Bush will probably find someone down the line to pin the blame for the federal failures. That "Brownie" is going down seems inevitable.
