The Rude Pundit on the Sovietization of America

The Rude Pundit has a post today about a cult of personality that's taken root since this president assumed office. It includes an episode so strange and horrible that it reads like a piece from The Onion, although to be fair, most news lately reads like The Onion.

While the Times reports today that Hurricane Katrina evacuees have suffered disproportionate problems with their physical and mental health, a group of so-called "Katrina Kids" performed a crazed hymn praising President Bush and FEMA at the White House Easter Egg Roll last weekend. The lyrics, via Think Progress:
Our country’s stood beside us
People have sent us aid.
Katrina could not stop us, our hopes will never fade.
Congress, Bush and FEMA
People across our land
Together have come to rebuild us and we join them hand-in-hand!
