Republicans were quicker to rush to the aid of one totally braindead woman than the tens of thousands in New Orleans.

Bush at least mourns the loss of Trent Lott's house.

His mom points out that, hey, these people are poor anyway.

His FEMA director is a horse groomer who knew less about the situation on the ground than network television viewers.

Need I go on? These people are assholes.

    You're just hurting your own cause with bullshit like this and alienating supporters who just aren't willing to take such an extremist, terrible stance. Congratulations.

    Hey man, it'll take a long time for Trent Lott to get that new porch. Do you know what it's like waiting for a porch? The whole time they're out there building and you're like, "where's my porch?" Oh, the humanity to which you are so insensitive...

    It does take a long time to build a porch, but the real question is: will Brownie be invited to hang out?

    And to my detractors, my only response is: fuck you!

    Before you ruin it with your rant, you make a pretty good point in the headline. Every now and then, Congress decides that something is really important, and then suddenly, all of the red tape and other stuff that usually stands in the way of things getting accomplished just seems to fall away. Need authorization to kick some ass right after 9/11? Wait 5 minutes.... done! Need legislation to drag out the life of a brain-dead woman in Florida? Wait 5 minutes.... done! Need to appeal the loss to the 11th Circuit and the Supreme Court twice? Done!

    But, then there's a huge disaster in New Orleans and we hear about miscommunication and bureaucratic inefficiencies. The 9/11 authorization and the Schiavo case both involved less complicated mobilizations of resources, but in both cases, Congress put debate aside for the exigencies of the moment. In New Orleans, we have senators debating about whether it's worth saving... the whole cooperate and get this done now, argue later mentality was totally missing, as far as I can tell. I'm sure there's more to it than that, but it's frustrating.

    I also don't know if the blame for this one goes to the GOP or to the federal government generally (which, admittedly, the GOP is running more than the Dems are.)
