Comfortably Numb

How else to explain the lack of outrage - or at least condescending laughter - over Michael Chertoff's latest statement? Remember, this is the same guy who oversaw the response to Hurricane Katrina:

The United States remains safe after the attack at a Scottish airport and two foiled car bombs in London, and no raising of the terror alert status is planned, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Monday.
The problem is that while the public may be numb to the continually growing list of things this administration has screwed up, the lack of outrage, or at least pointed questioning, leads BushCo. to think they can continue to get away with it.

Chertoff's a guy who should be wandering, drunk or stoned, from homeless shelter to homeless shelter after being frog-marched out of his office under a court order to never get within 100 miles of Washington DC for the rest of his life.

But he's still around telling us how safe we are.

Those levees around the airports are sure to keep the bad guys out.
