Getting A Free Pass...

Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco was given no questions about her response to Hurricane Katrina when she appeared before a Senate committee to plead for more federal money. Why? She asked not to be questioned about it and the committee agreed. The governors of two other states hit by Katrina -- Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi and Gov. Bob Riley of Alabama -- testified before the committee via closed circuit television.

Blanco went to Washington with a tin-cup in her hand and asked not to be questioned about her blatant incompetence. She wants the money, but she does not want to answer questions after she has made all sorts of comments and statements criticizing everyone except herself, especially the federal government — its just that she’s only willing to comment when she is not under oath.

The Republicans are such wimps. The Democrats are making outrageous statements about how incompetent and racist FEMA and the current administration and the Republicans don’t say anything in response and are getting walked on by even themselves now.

The GOP is losing people in droves over stuff like this, the Brown appointment although he was unqualified, the uncontroled imigration and lack of border security, the refusal of the GOP dominated Congress to curtail its spending, and a few other stories which are going on now. It will be interesting to see what November '06 brings…
