RUSH: So Kofi Annan is sitting there presiding over the absolute worst scandal in world history. The Volker Commission is pretty much establishing he was asleep at the wheel, and nobody,
This hurricane is going to do a loop. It’s going to do a clockwise loop, and they don’t really know now where it’s going to go. The models here just look funny. The funniest hurricane model display I’ve ever seen. I know where the websites are to find these things. They’re so mingled and jumbled, you can’t follow each track, but the National Hurricane Center, paid professionals to analyze these spaghetti models, has the track going pretty near Savannah, Georgia, and up into South Carolina by midweek next week. So it’s going to do one of these turns. I mean, it’s close to a 360, clockwise 360, then move on in, but it’s so far out. It depends on the strength of that high. There’s so many variables out there that they really don’t know what this is going to do right now. But anyway, Chertoff said (summarize), “That thing’s out there, and it’s building strength out there, and we’ve got to have our guy at the helm back in Washington.” So Brown has not been fired. He’s been sent back to Washington to oversee the big picture. As Chertoff says, “Hey, we can’t keep focusing all of our efforts on Katrina.” Now, you wait ’til the media and the left get through with that statement. Anyway, as to Kofi, and I was telling F. Lee Levin, factually, Christine in Ojai, California, you’re absolutely right. There is a great disparity here. We don’t make any move to get rid of Kofi. Kofi is incompetent. Being the most charitable we can about Kofi Annan, he’s incompetent. That’s being charitable. So why is there no clamor for his head?
What I told F. Lee today was, I said, “The thing is that Kofi Annan doesn’t impact anybody’s life personally and the UN doesn’t either, really.” I mean, the UN is a boondoggle. It’s a natural disaster itself. It is a haven for murdering dictators and thugs to get legitimacy, and to be called “excellencies” by Kofi Annan himself during the General Assembly meeting. But nobody’s life’s impacted by Kofi Annan. Nobody, not directly, not that they know. Kofi Annan’s not even an American. Kofi Annan, he had nothing to do with the hurricane, for example. About the only thing you can do is illustrate the hypocrisy of the left. If they’re worried about competence, why don’t they really go after one of the biggest offenders in the world when it comes to scandals, and that’s Kofi Annan. The reason is simple. Getting rid of Kofi Annan. There are two things, actually. Kofi Annan’s their buddy. The UN is their friend because the UN hates Bush. Any enemy of Bush is the friend of the Democrats. Number two, they’re not going to make a move to get rid of Kofi because getting rid of Kofi wouldn’t harm Bush. In fact, getting rid of Kofi might help Bush and it might help Bolton, so there’s no way, and yet you can certainly make the case there’s all kinds of hypocrisy rampant out there running left and right.
