well, it bloody took long enough, but finally the Democrats have started standing up for the American lower classes and those hit by the hurricane.

NY Times article

"This is deeply disturbing to a lot of Americans, because it's more than thousands of people who get killed; it's about the destruction of the American community," (Howard) Dean said. "The idea that somehow government didn't care until it had to for political reasons. It's appalling."

Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts, said: "The powerful winds of this storm have torn away that mask that has hidden from our debates the many Americans who are left out and left behind."

i miss the good old days when they did this a lot.

how's that?

b/c i was hoping the hurricane would be apocolyptic? i still think the response was too slow.
