Filmmaker Michael Moore has posted an 'open letter' to President Bush on his website, addressing the administration's response (or lack therof) to the Hurricane Katrina disaster. It's vintage Moore: typically inelegant, aggressive and drearily lacking in wit, but effective none the less. He's mostly attacking Bush, personally and individually, for being on vacation, being in San Diego, being everywhere but the affected areas for the past five days. "On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home," writes Moore, "I have to say I was moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done that."
