Proving Who His Friends Are 

In case anyone has any question about whom Bush cares more -- his rich friends, or the victims of Katrina (and, by extension, all Americans) -- he has just signed an executive order allowing federal contractors rebuilding to pay less than the prevailing wage.

Short version: it allows the contractors (read: Halliburton) to pocket even more of the fat government checks they'll get, while passing along less to people who've just lost everything and are looking to replace lost wages as well as lost homes. Yeah, compassionate conservativism my ass. This dickwit only has compassion for billionaires.
