Welcome to the club, Tim

Country music star Tim McGraw has turned on President Bush over the Katrina cleanup effort. Now, the right wing seems to be turning on him and his wife Faith Hill for describing the reconstruction effort as "embarrassing" and "humiliating."

I've got just one thing to say to Tim, welcome to the club:

Welcome to the club
Don't be thinkin' you're the only one
Whose heart was in a hit and run
While you looked the other way
As you're howlin' at the moon
Take a look around the room
At all your fellow fools of love
Welcome to the club
