Today's Outrage

from various news sources: Rep. Richard Baker of Baton Rouge (a Democrat) is overheard telling lobbyists: "We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did."

Baker explains later he didn't intend flippancy but has long wanted to improve low-income housing.

I can imagine a guy making this sort of doofus remark in, say, ten years, when the pain has subsided. One week later? While they're still collecting the dead?


  1. That kind of comment ranks right up there with Barbara Bush's comments. They're both insensitive to the people affected most directly.
