400 years and it's the same philosophy
How do Republicans manage to be so compassionate, yet so historically knowledgeable, all at the same time?
Black survivors of Hurricane Katrina said Tuesday that racism contributed to the slow disaster response, at times likening themselves in emotional congressional testimony to victims of genocide and the Holocaust.
The comparison is inappropriate, according to Rep. Jeff Miller (news, bio, voting record), R-Fla.
"Not a single person was marched into a gas chamber and killed," Miller told the survivors.
"They died from abject neglect," retorted community activist Leah Hodges. "We left body bags behind."
Talk about lowering the bar! Let's all play Republican limbo!
