If you call the eternal inferno of hell your home, the fires that have so far scorched 450,000+acres might seem quaint by comparison. Then I guess it should come as no surprise that many people's own personal Satan, VP Dick Cheney, dozed off in a Wednesday cabinet meeting as Bush discussed the ongoing efforts to contain the fires.
The Decider himself landed in Southern California today and photo-oped the hell out some of the hardest hit areas. Though his less than inspiring platitudes offer little comfort -- really, you think "It's a sad situation"? Thanks for the leadership, Prez -- here's hoping the federal purse stings are loosened in response to the presidential tour and "major disaster" designation.
