This Space for Rent

I’m shocked, shocked to find graft going on here!

The Evil Party has apparently decided that it's not even worth trying to pretend that their disaster relief will be anything other than the now-traditional festival of corruption...

Republicans said Karl Rove, the White House deputy chief of staff and Mr. Bush's chief political adviser, was in charge of the reconstruction effort

The one thing you can say for certain here is that not more than $30 billion dollars will actually end up doing reconstruction work; the other $170 billion or so, well, I fully expect that the people who make expensive houses, cars, and airplanes will be doing very well indeed just from sales to the new .com billionaires who work for the usual gang of bloated government contractors.

I wonder how many poor Democrats will discover that government disaster relief does not extend to providing transportation back to Louisiana, because, gosh, everyone (of the little people) has to do belt-tightening in the aftermath of this horrible disaster.
