Lieberman to Whitewash New Orleans

Saturday, January 13, 2007

I think it's time at long last for Holy Joe to retire his "I met Dr. King" speech, because the cynicism of his black church, stump classic has now been fully exposed. To paraphrase Kanye West, Joe Lieberman doesn't care about black people. How do I know? Because he's made it clear that he will be letting Bush's White House off the hook for their systematic failures during the Katrina disaster. Read it and weep.

But now that he chairs the homeland panel—and is in a position to subpoena the records—Lieberman has decided not to pursue the material, according to Leslie Phillips, the senator’s chief committee spokeswoman. “The senator now intends to focus his attention on the future security of the American people and other matters and does not expect to revisit the White House’s role in Katrina,” she told NEWSWEEK.
