This Is CCCP

We keep saying this administration is more like the old Soviet than anything American. BoP agrees, pointing us to this, where we learn that Tom Delay is more concerned with his and Shrubya's image than with fixing the governments policy on handling disasters. Then there's this via Brad DeLong, where we hear yet again about the firefighters being used as a prop for a photo-op(also noted in comments by JDNOF below). It can only be a matter of time before we see pictures of Cheney swimming in a river somewhere.

These are not the actions of people interested in governing a republic. These are the actions of people desperate to hold on to power, and who know the best way to do it is to attempt to manage perception. If you supported these people in the name of freedom or safety you have been conned on both counts.

Update: Mark Schmitt offers a solemn hope I think many of us share.
