Where did Bush find these idiots?

First Michael Chertoff tries to convince us that despite the disastrous and bungled Katrina assistance efforts the feds are actually ready for the Avian Flu. Now Secretaries Michael Johanns and Mike Leavitt are spreading more madness:

"There's no way you can protect the United States by building a big cage around it and preventing wild birds from flying in and out."

...U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Michael Johanns

Well fucking duh.....I would never have known that if he hadn't said something. Guess that's why he makes the big money! And just when you didn't think it could get worse, it does:

"Let me acknowledge that no one in the world is prepared for a pandemic. When you go to the store and buy three cans of tuna fish, buy a fourth and put it under the bed. When you go to the store to buy some milk, pick up a box of powdered milk. Put it under the bed. When you do that for a period of four to six months, you are going to have a couple of weeks of food, and that's what we're talking about."

...Secretary of Health and Human Services Mike Leavitt

Oh my goodness, at first I thought this was a
big fat joke!

The sad thing is that it's no joke.
And the only thing I can do is shake my head in amazement.
