FEMA In Da Hizzouse

George Bush does too care about black people! How else to explain this "FEMA For Kidz" rap on the agency's web site? And do we need to spell it out any more clearly that Bush, Chertoff, and Brown can't fairly be held responsible for the failure of local and state authorities to prepare for Katrina? I mean, come on--it's in the rap, people:
Disaster prep is your responsibility
And mitigation is important to our agency
I mean, jeez, if these people won't listen when you speak to them in their own language, then what's a government supposed to do?

Also found on the FEMA For Kidz page: We still don't know for sure what newspaper Chertoff was reading that told him New Orleans dodged a bullet, but we think little Katie Sullivan is the editorial cartoonist.

UPDATE: I guess Crooks & Liars noted this over the weekend.
