Subject: RE: BS: Karl Rove v. Hillary on Katrina...
There has been very little actual comment on this in the UK, but there has been glorious use of pauses and intonation. ("The inquiry will be conducted .......... by George Bush")

I was somewhat surprised that all of the press present when the announcement was made managed to suppress a guffaw or other sign of astonishment.

Leaving aside all the details though, and more seriously, since this will almost certainly end up finding the federal level behaved impeccably but the whereas the states made a mess of things, will this be used to give the federal level greater power to override the state?
