JON CHAIT WATCH....When we last left him, Jon Chait was explaining the roots of George Bush's governing philosophy:

Bush's [domestic] political successes all have three main elements in common....The first is massive partisan discipline.... Element No. 2 is massive giveaways to well-organized lobbies.... The third element is how should I put it? lying.

So how's he doing with Hurricane Katrina? Let's take it by the numbers:

  1. Massive partisan discipline. Check.

  2. Massive giveaways. Check.

  3. Massive lying. Check. Check. Check.

It looks like Karl Rove has recovered from his kidney stone surgery and is back in the saddle. From here on out, it should be smooth sailing.
