"Minority Report"

Jay takes shots at George W. Bush's much-maligned response to Hurricane Katrina on this dramatic 2006 cut.


The commander-in-chief just flew by
Did he stop? No, he had a couple seats
Just proved Jet Blue he's not
Jet flew by the spot
What if he ran out of jet fuel and just dropped
Huh, that woulda been something to watch
Helicopters doing fly-bys to take a couple of shots
Couple of portraits then ignored him
He'd be just another Bush surrounded by a couple orchids
Poor kids just 'cause they were poor kids
Left 'em on they porches same old story in New Orleans
