Powerful Katrinka

Tony Parkinson’s acrobatics in defence of George Bush deserve a 10 for degree of difficulty but only 3 for execution. What, he asks plaintively, is the performance benchmark in cases of natural disaster? Well, leaving out Cuba (evacuated a million for Hurricane Felix, didn‘t lose one) how about Acheh? After the tsunami they were airdropping food and water to the survivors in two days, not five, and accepted overseas medical help immediately, as opposed to not yet.

To say that George Bush couldn’t raffle a chook in a pub is not to say nearly enough. If he ever got the job we’d expect to see the pub in rubble, all the patrons down with salmonella poisoning, and Halliburton in the corner counting their beer money.
