Katrina is George Bush's Monica Lewinsky (video)
The [VIDEO] video may come from the good folks at Crooks and Liars but the transcript portions are from the hysterics at the Media Research Center, monitoring the media for outbreaks of honesty and bleating and crowing when it happens.
Brent Baker (pictured left) on COMEDY Central's The Daily Show: "Without addressing the bias point that the media framework has held Bush and FEMA accountable to the exclusion of local officials, he [Jon Stewart] scolded those who claim the 'left-wing media is being too hard' on Bush: 'No. Shut up. No. This is inarguably, inarguably a failure of leadership from the top of the federal government.' Stewart's presentation culminated with a laugh line, 'Hurricane Katrina is George Bush's Monica Lewinsky. One difference, and I'll say this, the only difference is this: That tens of thousands of people weren't stranded in Monica Lewinsky's vagina. That is the only difference.'"
Laugh line? Is Baker for real? Real or not, he missed the best line. Fortunately, C&L doesn't:
Ed Helms:...through the President's leadership, he'll end up building a billion dollar damn in Arkansas.
Stewart: Why would he build a damn in Arkansas?
Helms: His plan will be to fight the water over there, so we don't have to fight it over here.(Media Research Center / Video via Crooks and Liars)
