Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert (R - IL), in a dazzling display of idiocy grumbled and groused over the funding of future rebuilding efforts in New Orleans. Preferring to bulldoze most of the city damaged by Katrina rather than rebuild it, Hastert exposed his coal black heart.

"We help replace, we help relieve disaster," Hastert said. "But I think federal insurance and everything that goes along with it... we ought to take a second look at that."

Hastert's callousness didn't stop there, he also took a swipe at other places existing in 'dangerous' areas:

"You know we build Los Angeles and San Francisco on top of earthquake issures and they rebuild, too. Stubbornness," he said.

Stubbornness.

So then...Damn those Californians living in earthquake prone...California. Or how about those idiot Floridians, Alabamans, Texans, Mississippians, Georgians, North and South Carolinians and Virginians for living anywhere near the coast. Hurricanes hit the coasts, don't you know. Maybe we should be leery of those midwesterners that build their homes in Tornado alley. The Southwest suffers droughts...can't live there.

As refugees pour out of New Orleans carrying suitcases filled with their most valuable posessions;While the poor folks left behind ransack grocery stores for survival; And as a 400 year old city of historical, financial, and cultural significance is submerged at Atlantis level proportions, it's good to know the conservatives in Congress are exhibiting that fiscal restraint they're famous for. If only Hastert and the boys were this concerned with the $300 Billion black hole called Iraq.

Congratulations Speaker Hastert, you too are an A-1 Jackass!
