And I love the title of the post.

From the War Room blog at Salon.com:

Hurricane Katrina determined to strike in U.S.

Rush Limbaugh warned his listeners this morning that "the left" would find a way to "politicize" Hurricane Katrina. We wouldn't want to disappoint him, so here goes: Think Progress has dredged up a report showing that the Bush administration proposed to cut $71.2 million from the 2006 budget for the New Orleans district of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. According to the report, the cuts mean that "major hurricane and flood protection projects will not be awarded to local engineering firms," and that a study to find ways to protect the region from major hurricanes has been shelved.

How much is $71.2 million? Enough to fund about nine-and-a-half hours of war in Iraq.
