If you're sick of Katrina coverage, move along. If not, a few clips from http://www.crooksandliars.com and elsewhere that I think are worth seeing or at least hearing:

Typically I think Geraldo is one of the more worthless "reporters" we have the misfortune of dealing with. In this instance, to see him and Shepard Smith cut down any attempt by Hannity to hijack the conversation.

Olbermann on MSNBC goes on a rant about the inadequacy of our government's response. It's 5 minutes long, but it's a scathing op-ed piece.

Barbara Bush has the audacity to say that the hurricane "worked out" for poor people. WTF?! There is a special place in hell with her name on it, carved into a plaque made out of human remains.

Bob Schieffer of CBS news has his own commentary.

Jon Stewart's opening monologue sums the situation up pretty accurately, from the mismanagement of the government, to the way the media has responded.

Tim Russert grills Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff for sleeping on the job, without any real response.

And it goes on and on and on. Bottom line: What good is FEMA and the Department Of Homeland Security if they can't protect our people from the ravages of a hurricane and the aftermath left in it's wake? How does our government justify what has happened? Claiming that the state of Louisiana failed or this person or that person didn't request enough assistance doesn't cut it. Talking points don't cut it. Answers need to be provided and do not appear to be coming any time soon.
