They can get them to the polls, but not out of harm's way

I'm listening to Rush Limbaugh right now talk about how the Louisiana politicians could get the poor masses onto buses to ride to the polls on Election Day, but couldn't evacuate them for the hurricane. That led me to the following excerpt from a Robert Novak article: On Election Day 1996, mid-afternoon exit polls showed State Rep. Woody Jenkins with a clear advantage against Landrieu to become the state's first Republican senator of the 20th century. Also threatened was local option for video poker and riverboat casinos. Gambling interests immediately dispatched a convoy of buses to New Orleans' predominantly black housing projects after 5 p.m. to recruit voters. The gambling industry saved itself and Mary Landrieu. Makes you wonder how they could react so quickly in that instance, but not do more in this case before tragedy struck.....

Liberals only care about the poor and minorities when the poor and minorities can do something for them. When it's time for them to do somethign for the poor and minorities, their vaunted compassion sudedenyl disappears. I just wish these lying hypocrites would stop pretending that they care about others.
