Recall election.

There's no such thing as a national recall election, so we can be spared of the California spectacle going nationwide.

However, it certainly seems that the President has bungled his job enough to merit a national recall campaign, and the time-honored way to conduct a national recall election is to make the mid-term congressional election into a referendum on the President's job performance.

Next year looks like it could shape up as a perfect storm for Republican incumbents. The Majority Whip has just been indicted. The Senate Majority Leader is under investigation for insider trading. The White House is mired in the Plame case on the legal front, and has bungling of Federal Emergency Management and Social Security to answer for on the policy front, not to mention the quagmire in Iraq. It really is a year when the bums ought to be thrown out.

A couple numbers that would be worth knowing.

How much would it have cost to build New Orlean's levies up to category 5 storm level?

How much is it costing to evacuate and revive New Orleans?

Another number worth knowing. What's the cost of sacking a FEMA head assigned as a patronage figurehead a week after a major disaster?
