John Kerry: "This is the Katrina Administration..."

Link: JohnKerry.com - Senator John Kerry's Speech at Brown University.

Katrina is a symbol of all this administration does and doesn't do. Michael Brown -- or Brownie as the President so famously thanked him for doing a heck of a job - Brownie is to Katrina what Paul Bremer is to peace in Iraq; what George Tenet is to slam dunk intelligence; what Paul Wolfowitz is to parades paved with flowers in Baghdad; what Dick Cheney is to visionary energy policy; what Donald Rumsfeld is to basic war planning; what Tom Delay is to ethics; and what George Bush is to %u201CMission Accomplished%u201D and "Wanted Dead or Alive." The bottom line is simple: The "we'll do whatever it takes" administration doesn't have what it takes to get the job done. This is the Katrina administration.

It was good, but Al Gore's speeches are better: environment, Iraq, etc. I'm sticking with the guy who really won in 2000...
