Morning Thread

Isn't this the kind of stuff Joe Lieberman is supposed to look into as Chair of the Homeland Security Committee...if he gave a damn?

Last month, CNN revealed that the Federal Emergency Management Agency had stored $85 million worth of household items in warehouses for two years. Instead of giving the supplies to victims of the 2005 hurricane, FEMA declared them surplus and gave them all away to federal agencies and 16 states in February.

The state of Louisiana -- the most hard-hit by the storm -- had not asked for any of the supplies, prompting outrage in the community after the original CNN report.

CNN's investigation showed that Mississippi was one of the 16 states that took the FEMA supplies, but it did not distribute them to Katrina victims.

But Joe is too busy sitting next to the "Captain's Chair" wiggling his feet with joy.

McCain's press corps cannot even summon the courage to question the Presidential Candidate's statements and policies, you know Holy Joe will get a pass. Those who earn their way into McCain's presence will not dare risk their dearly won plane seats with impertinence. To the victor go the sprinkles.
