His beautiful mind? "Oblivious, in denial, dangerous"

Cheers and kudos for Nancy Pelosi and Mary Landrieu!

Nancy Pelosi:

At a news conference, Pelosi, D-Calif., said Bush’s choice for head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency had “absolutely no credentials.”

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

Mary Landrieu:

Ms. Landrieu, a Democrat who was nearly put out of office in 2002 after Mr. Bush campaigned intensely for her Republican opponent, had mostly held her fire against the president in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. But her tone changed markedly on Thursday, with a 20-minute speech that was at turns poignant and defiant.

“We know the president said, quote, ‘I don’t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees,’ ” Ms. Landrieu said. “Everybody anticipated the breach of the levee, Mr. President, including computer simulations in which this administration participated.”

The senator went on to describe how the creator of Mr. Bill, the clay figurine whose cry of “Ohh noooo!” was long a staple of “Saturday Night Live,” had used the character in public service announcements to warn southern Louisianians of the dangers they would face in an extraordinary storm.

“How can it be,” she asked, “that Mr. Bill was better informed than Mr. Bush?”
