Image hosted by Dems Used Katrina to Raise Funds

Everytime you think they can't go any lower. They lower the bar even further..

"Sen. Charles Schumer , a New York Democrat and the head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued an appeal Thursday urging people to sign an online petition to fire the Federal Emergency Management Agency's director over his handling of the Katrina response."

Fair enough, redress of government ineptitude is part of our rights enumerated in the Constitution, indeed it is our responsiblity as citizens of a republic to hold our government accountable for it's actions and/or inactions.

"When recipients clicked on a link to the petition, the top center of the screen — above the call to "Fire the FEMA director" — they were asked for a donation to the DSCC."

The DSCC has since stated that any funds raised by the page would be donated to the Red Cross; and then pulled down the page.

To use a natural disaster on the scale of Katrina as a source for raising campaign funds truly demonstrates the TRUE measure of the Party of Caring©.
Notice that when they were called on it, they immediatly pulled down the page, wouldn't want the Prols to waste all that campaign money on disaster relief, after all, now would they? Bad enough the funds thus far collected were used so! /Image hosted by

I've come to expect cynical hypocrasy from both parties, but it does seem that the DemocRats have the corner on the market of the most blatent forms.

Too bad that the sheeple won't remember the little things like this by the time the next election rolls around.
