Katrina czar

Being that the press (and thus public sentiment and thus political will...) can only track stories of, as Dan Carol puts it "(1) crisis, (2) cover up and (3) personality," Carol suggests that progressives "demand that Bush name a recognizable Cleanup Czar -- so the press would have someone to track, talk to, blame or lionize."

Earlier he suggested Colin Powell (who may be interested in penance for f-ing up so badly with respect to Iraq), but now he throws up Giuliani and Brangelina.

I suggest the Jacksons, Michael and Janet, looking to erase public memories of molestation charges and exposure; Bill Clinton whose incentive will be to jam with jazz bands as they repopulate the city in repair or Chalabi, as the administration still believes in his good will.

Any other suggestions? (HuffPost)
