TPM - Finger pointing begins

TPM is also starting to track the . Bush administrations spin control and finger pointing. Its already in full swing even as the death and misery continue in NOLA:

Now at least we have the storyline. The Bush administration wasn't caught sleeping on the job while New Orleans went under with a gutted FEMA run by a guy who got fired from his last job policing horse shows. In fact, according to the new White House storyline, the governor of Louisiana and the mayor of New Orleans didn't ask for help quickly enough. And the White House was powerless to act until they did. Apparently they couldn't even reschedule the president's vacation until the locals got the right forms signed.
How can he possibly get away with this? Sure there is plenty of blame to spread around. But the lack of accountability is already appalling.
