Investigation checklist: #1 Come up with cool name. Ask Karl if "Freedom Force" is taken. #2 Challenge other investigation to foosball tournament

So by now you all know that Bush is going to be investigating himself.

Yes, he's promised to lead an inquiry into his own administration's response to Katrina.

He might want to take at look at this.

From Salon's War Room:

From all across the nation, local fire departments have sent firefighters -- many of them trained in emergency medicine and search-and-rescue techniques -- to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. The Federal Emergency Management Agency requested the help.

But when the firefighters arrived in Atlanta, loaded down with the firefighting gear FEMA told them to bring, they were sent to a hotel to wait. Some of them have been waiting for three or four days now. Some have been assigned to sit through an eight-hour class on topics that included sexual harassment. And some have been dispatched to the disaster area to work as human props behind George W. Bush as he toured the destruction.

We've said this before lately, and we'll say it again: We're not making this up.
