Coburn & Co. Continued: Can It With The Compassion Crap, You Crass Creeps

image
Anybody remember to set a stopwatch or start a pool on how long it took Senator Tom Coburn to accuse critics of his hypocritical disaster-aid political posturing “crass?”

For pity’s sake, all Coburn wants to do is make sure his constituents
receive help
in:

the most compassionate, effective and efficient way possible.”

Presumably, Sen. Coburn’s attempts to starve the agency that would provide that help won’t affect all that effectiveness. As Betty Cracker observes,

what does seem somewhat novel—to me, at least—is the brazen callousness in today’s breed of Republicans

Meanwhile in the annals of brazen callousness, Sen. Coburn’s fellow coprolite OK Sen. James Inhofe has tried to get around their stonewalling aid for Eastern states by calling the Sandy aid bill a “slush fund:”

“they were getting things … in the Virgin Islands, fixing roads there, and putting roofs on houses in Washington, D.C.”

Evidently the good senators are unaware that both Washington and the Virgin Islands are U.S. territories. But what does that matter? It’s not like they have senators to deny aid to anybody.

“We’re just plain evil!”

I was on Capitol Hill today for a development related presentation.  The Senators and Congressmen there were fully aware and spoke towards the disfunctionality of Congress, well mainly the Democrats actually.  The one GOP representative (“Judge” Poe - Tea Party - TX) talked about his concern about rape in developing countries when women go fetching for water.

As someone who has worked in developing countries for most of his career, I can pretty certainly assure the Congressman that this doesn’t happen as a rule otherwise village social life would have long since broken down. It may occur in extreme civil war situations but this is exceptional.  But then my wife reminded me that his constituents are probably rightwingers with certain views about them crazy foreigners. So I think we had foreigner dog whistling going on, in this case.  Sad.

“Only the proles are affected by natural disasters, so screw ‘em.  Now when’s my next dinner party with the Koch’s?”

Evidently the good senators are unaware that both Washington and the Virgin Islands are U.S. territories. But what does that matter? It’s not like they have senators to deny aid to anybody.

Sandy covered the same area as Texas, it’s not like the disaster was confined to the NYC tri-state area.
