Katrina is a diversion tactic

(9-2-2005) Democrats in the Senate Judiciary Committee today issued a stinging rebuke to President George Bush for orchestrating Hurricane Katrina in order to divert attention from Cindy Sheehan. "We have heard about President Clinton wagging the dog by bombing aspirin factories to divert attention from his impeachment, but this is a new low," said Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY).

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) added, "What we have here is a desperate President who will go to any length to distract us from what really matters: a woman camping out in Crawford Texas."

A top-secret memo leaked to several media outlets contained Democrat talking points relating to President Bush's motivation for causing the hurricane. Among the major reasons were diverting attention from the bothersome Crawford protest, and providing financial benefit to Bush's oil cronies by inflating the price of gasoline.

The only comment from the press corps attending the news conference was from New York Times reporter Fred Jenkins who said, "The seriousness of this allegation demands immediate and thorough investigation."
