CASABLANCA ALLUSION (FUNNY); BUSH DEFENSE (PRICELESS)

Carl at "No Oil For Pacifists" made my day with his tongue-in-cheek allusion to the movie classic, "Casablanca," in the context of the New Orleans debacle (I love movie analogies); and, like Maverick in "Top Gun," decided "to enagage" in shooting down the Bush-bashers who have been stretching credulity in trying to lay 100% of the blame at the president's feet for the plodding government relief efforts through mid-week of last week in responding to the Gulf Coast victims of Hurricane Katrina's wrath. And he does it all so succinctly, yet with his customary plethora of links!
