"Daily Show" on Katrina

"Just a quick observation, when people don't want to play the blame
game, they're to blame." --Jon Stewart, on the Bush administration
cautioning against playing the "blame game"

"The president has vowed to personally lead the investigation into the
government's failed response to Katrina? Isn't that a job perhaps
someone else should be doing?" --Jon Stewart
"No, not at all, Jon. To truly find out what went wrong, it's
important for an investigator to have a little distance from the
situation. And it's hard to get any more distant from it than the
president was last week." --"Daily Show" correspondent Samantha Bee

"The president has issued a statement that, on September 16th, there
will be a day of prayer. Now, uh, uh, okay. But isn't a hurricane,
and I don't mean to be crass in any way, an act of God? Shouldn't
there be a day of shunning? Some sort of 'Okay, tough guy.'" --Jon

"William Rehnquist, The 80-year-old chief justice died Saturday after
spending 33 years on the court. That means that, with a Supreme Court
vacancy and a city known for debauchery destroyed, God has listened to
Pat Robertson twice in one week" --Jon Stewart

"Michael Brown, the director of FEMA, was nominated by President Bush
in 2003 and plans to start the job any day now. ... Prior to heading
FEMA, Brown spent the 90's as a commissioner -- this is true -- of the
International Arabian Horse Association. I guess he stands out
because most Bush appointees are beholden to Arabian people." --Jon

"While everybody else is busy setting up commissions and finding
fault, through the president's leadership he'll end up building a
billion dollar dam in Arkansas." --"Daily Show" correspondent Ed Helms
"Why would he build a dam in Arkansas?" --Jon Stewart
"His plan will be to fight the water there so we don't have to fight
it here." --Ed Helms

"So no one's going to be held accountable for this at all?" --Jon
"No. In fact, if history is any indication, they'll be hard-pressed
finding enough medals to pin on these guys. My sources tell me the
head of FEMA will be dipped in bronze and turned into an award to be
given to other officials." --Ed Helms

"I used to work at a bar ... and there was a fat guy there. And he
just sat there drinking and being fat. And one day someone tried to
break into his car in the parking lot' he got up and ran out there
and beat two people with a tire iron. And I remember thinking 's--t,
that guy can move, I had no idea' ... That's how I feel about the
media." --Jon Stewart on the media's coverage of Hurricane Katrina

"This is inarguably a failure of leadership from the top of the
federal government. Remember when Bill Clinton went out with Monica
Lewinsky. That was inarguably a failure of judgment at the top.
Democrats had to come out and risk losing credibility if they did not
condemn Bill Clinton for his behavior. I believe Republicans are in
the same position right now. And I will say this: Hurricane Katrina
is George Bush's Monica Lewinsky. The only difference is that tens of
thousands of people weren't stranded in Monica Lewinsky's vagina." --
Jon Stewart
