Getting to the Bottom of It

Aren't you glad to hear that there will be an inquiry into the unrescue effort after Katrina? So good to find out exactly who caused several unnecessary deaths and much suffering. There is just one little snag:

House and Senate GOP leaders announced the "Hurricane Katrina Joint Review Committee," which will include only members of Congress, with Republicans outnumbering Democrats by a yet-to-be-determined ratio. The commission, which will have subpoena powers, will investigate the actions of local, state and federal governments before and after the storm that devastated New Orleans and other portions of the Gulf Coast.

No independents. Given what the recent polls have shown us Republicans appear to believe (without evidence) that Bush did a great job after Katrina. So prepare for the same findings.
