Commemorating what?

Michelle Malkin writes:

This weekend, on the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, civil rights activists and hip-hop stars will hold what they call a “healing ceremony” to commemorate the disaster. President Obama will speak at a separate event in New Orleans on Sunday. But don’t expect any of these reconciliation-seeking leaders to confront the indelible stain of racial demagoguery left by the left in Katrina’s aftermath. Hating George W. Bush means never having to say you’re sorry.

We know this country is mad for anniversaries—but celebrating the five year anniversary of a hurricane? I think the only reason Obama and the left are commemorating Hurricane Katrina is that this is the anniversary of which they can sing:

The Night We Drove George W. Bush Down
And all the bell were ringing
The Night We Drove George W. Bush Down
And all the people were singing
They went, Nah, nah nah nah nah, nah
Nah nah, hah nah, nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah.
