The right wing's been playing a desperate game of projection with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, trying to project the incompetence of the Bush administration during Katrina onto the Obama administration. All I can say is when a Fox News host is making Karl Rove look ridiculous and even stopped watch Joe Scarborough is calling you obscene, your talking point isn't going over so well.

I don't know why any of them think reminding everyone about how Bush handled Katrina is going to work out well for Republicans. Rove's supposed to be some political genius, but he can't stand up even for a couple of minutes with anyone who's going to call him out for his hackery. It falls flat on its face. I'm sure Karl will get Hannity, Bill-O or Greta to stroke his ego and make him feel all better later.

Can you help us out?
