    and they're not going to win North Carolina this time.  in the GOP's most deluded delusions of grandeur, they thought they might win New Jersey.  Now, they will not.  from the diary, this also seems to be affecting Missouri in a bad way, and specifically the Winter's Bone parts.

    Basically, there is nothing good to be gained politically by fucking up disaster relief -- contrast Clinton with the Iowa floods.  God knows if we'd have had the Senate today (to the extent we have it) if it weren't for Katrina.

    •  And CLinton... (0+ / 0-)

      With Hurricane Floyd and James Lee Witt at FEMA, v. Dub and Brownie Brown post-Katrina. Cantor clearly comes from the latter school of disaster relief. Won't win him any points.

    •  BUT we have to be willing to USE it. (0+ / 0-)

      That only works if we keep hammering over and over that the Republicans don't care about people.

      I just don't see us doing that.  We didn't do it with Katrina, anyway.

      What will it take for the Democrats to speak up?
