Media Matter alerts us tothis:
During the “All-Star Panel” segment onSpecial Report, theWashington Examiner‘s Bill Sammon and
Roll Call‘s Mort Kondracke blamed
state and local governments for their handling of Hurricane Katrina while
excusing or ignoring the failures of the federal government.
Media Matters does a good job addressing the falshoods therein. But one line by Charles Krauthammer struck me:

as our only grocery store for at least a 30 minute ride in any
direction. Insurance companies continue to low ball, delay, and fight

And with that in mind here is the Friday night music video dedicated to Mr. Krauthammer:
