We Zigged, When We Should Have Zagged
Boy, did we get our poll question wrong this past week ... Thinking, with the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, there’d be a bevy of conversation, editorials, unending cable news programs, with parades of talking heads offering a complete and thorough second look at President Bush, and his administrations’, failed response (then and now) to the Gulf Region and New Orleans.

With the first-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina this week, the most outrageous act the White House is likely to undertake is ...
1. Releasing talking points that the vote for Ned Lamont was giving the “shorter-levee-types” exactly what they wanted ... Tally - 38%
2. Issuing a “President’s Cut” DVD - An exact copy of the news footage that Andy Card put together showing New Orleans flooded, so President Bush could understand the disaster that the rest of the country had already seen for days ... Tally - 30%
3. A contest to co-host, with President Bush, another speech from Jackson Square ... Tally - 25%
