More Administration Sunshine...

...being blown up our asses:

On CNN Thursday evening, FEMA Director Michael Brown said he thought things were going "reasonably well" in New Orleans. Then, he asserted that the federal government "did not even know about the convention center people until today." This would be the New Orleans Convention Center, an increasingly desperate situation upon which the majors have been reporting since Tuesday.

And, as if that weren't enough, Dept. of Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff suggested in an NPR interview that the stories reporters were filing on conditions at the convention center amounted to rumors.

So after more criminal incompetence, the administration does what it always does: Say everything is great and shift the debate. Sounds like Iraq. But...hey...Bush is going to fly over today. Wonder if that will give the people on the ground much comfort.
