america is drowning…

… and it’s all according to plan.

I just saw this on Leighton’s site and had to steal it. It’s the most appropriate graphic I’ve seen since the hurricane hit, and everyone should see it.

And, just to back it up, here’s a clip from Paul Krugman’s op-ed in today’s New York Times:

…But the federal government’s lethal ineptitude wasn’t just a consequence of Mr. Bush’s personal inadequacy; it was a consequence of ideological hostility to the very idea of using government to serve the public good. For 25 years the right has been denigrating the public sector, telling us that government is always the problem, not the solution. Why should we be surprised that when we needed a government solution, it wasn’t forthcoming?

This, my invisible friends, is what happens when you elect people who want to destroy government instead of fix it.
