Compassionate conservative. That squinty-eyed fat tub of shit Denny Hastert weighs in on the disaster and Democratic Governor Kathleen Blanco-who-deserves-some-of-the-blame-for-this-mess-but-did-not-make-the-decisions-to-slash -funding-to-FEMA-or-send-the-National-Guard-to-Iraq-and-who-was-not-on-vacation-before-and -after-the-hurricane-hit doesn't like what Denny has to say.
A furious Gov. Kathleen Blanco issued a message to House Speaker Dennis Hastert: "I expect an apology as soon as possible."

She was referring to Hastert's comments about spending billions of dollars to rebuild New Orleans.

Hastert told an Illinois newspaper, "It looks like a lot of that place could be bulldozed."

Blanco said it's an insult to even suggest that "one of the most historic cities is not worth an investment."

"To kick us down when we're down and destroy hope" is unnecessary, Blanco said.

Hastert said in a transcript that the people of New Orleans would rebuild their city, but said "we ought to take a second look" at federal insurance and other federal aid involved.

Now, let's imagine what the response would have been if four years ago on September 17th, this version appeared.
A furious Gov. George Pataki issued a message to Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle: "I expect an apology as soon as possible."

He was referring to Daschle's comments about spending billions of dollars to rebuild New York.

Daschle told a South Dakota newspaper, "It looks like a lot of that place could be bulldozed."

Pataki said it's an insult to even suggest that "one of the most historic cities is not worth an investment."

"To kick us down when we're down and destroy hope" is unnecessary, Pataki said.

Daschle said in a transcript that the people of New York would rebuild their city, but said "we ought to take a second look" at federal insurance and other federal aid involved.
Of course, no sane person would have said that. So here's to you, Denny, you pi┼║dzielec.
