One of the most annoying, aggravating, and irksome things about this year’s Katrinaversary is, of course, George W Bush returning to the scene of the crime. He’s about as popular here as a dead refrigerator full of rancid, rotting crab, shrimp, and crawfish. Maggots have a higher approval rating in Orleans Parish than Bush.
Two NOLA Twitteratti rather neatly summed up my un-resilient reaction to the news of Bush visiting this upcoming Friday.
Bush is planning to visit New Orleans for a Katrina remembrance on 8/28, but will actually get here on 9/5

Dubya showing up for Katrina's 10th anniversary is like a deadbeat dad showing up to his kids 10th birthday and expecting to be welcome.

I can never get enough of John Fogerty’s post-K rant and roll song, Long Dark Night, so I’ll give him the last word:
Brownie’s in the outhouse
Katrina on the line
Government’s a disaster
But Georgie, he says it’s fine
Lord you’d better run
Be a long dark night
Before this thing is done
