Today on Hardball, David Shuster gave a scathing rundown of what has been a horrific week for President Bush and the Republican Party. Starting with the president's awkward visit to New Orleans to mark the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the "Brownie" moment, Shuster then moves to the resignation of Bush's disgraced Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales and of course, yesterday's revelation that Idaho Republican, Larry Craig, had been arrested for seeking sex with an undercover officer in a bathroom stall at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

Shuster: "The White House did offer a statement today on the Larry Craig sex scandal. A presidential spokesman expressed disappointment, but refused to say whether Craig should keep his job. That means the White House is trying to stay detached from Senator Craig in much the same way the White House has tried to stay removed from the lingering Gulf Coast problems since Hurricane Katrina."
