Mother Katrina

The MSM shapes it's new hurricane spin strategy.

We should call her "Mother Katrina". We should never call her just Katrina; I don't know her. "Mother Katrina" is her title, and expresses her ceremonial status as a bereaved mother, calling forth over the dead bodies of Bush's victims. She is not just a weather catastrophe now, she is a mother, which is not an expression of her individuality, but rather the expression of her eternal character: the mother, the bringer of political gotchas, who has been wronged by state power. ...We should not use the name of her looters and holdouts. Her looters and holdouts are a symbol of all victims who have been sacrificed for this useless and criminal Bush rescue operation.

(Don't forget to make up a celebrity comment for the cat.)
