Quote of the Day

this is so disgusting that I am actually speechless about this.

As reported in the Wall Street Journal (subscription needed)

Republican Rep. Baker of Baton Rouge is overheard telling lobbyists: "We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did."

On a lighter note, I present the second best quote of the day from the Daily Show with Jon Stewart:

Jon Stewart: The president has vowed to personally lead the investigation into the government's failed response to Katrina? Isn't that a job perhaps someone else should be doing?

Samantha Bee: No, not at all, Jon. To truly find out what went wrong, it's important for an investigator to have a little distance from the situation. And it's hard to get any more distant from it than the president was last week.
