Party, Politboro, and People's Deputies Determined to Investigate Katrina

And the pundits ponder: Will bin Laden, Monica Lewinsky, or Emmanuel Goldstein be found responsible? How else to explain the sheer, brazen disrespect conflation of Party and Congress found in the foll Washington Post story:
"Congress is actively responding to the disaster caused by Hurricane Katrina," House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) said in a statement released during an appearance attended only by Republicans, after an all-GOP planning session.

The announcement came a day after President Bush said his administration would conduct an investigation into the Katrina response and House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) ordered the House Government Reform Committee to suspend plans for immediate hearings. Democrats denounced both actions, and they called the Frist-Hastert plan inadequate. They vowed to push their own proposals for helping the storm's victims and investigating government agencies' responses.

Oh, and just a word about balanced headlines, such as the Post's "Parties Scramble for Post-Katrina Leverage": They work in all situations. For example, "Jews, Stormtroopers Scramble for Post-Krystalnacht Leverage." TrackBack
