Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO), a possible presidential candidate in 2008, asked House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) "not to send federal disaster aid to officials in Louisiana, calling state and local government there incompetent and corrupt," the Rocky Mountain News reports.
Instead, Tancredo urged the speaker to create a "bipartisan select committee" of members of Congress to oversee federal disaster spending in Louisiana because of the state's history of political corruption.
Now we know that there is no limit to the depths of stupidity and partisanship of the GOP. Tancredo needs to be dropped off in the middle of the Ninth Ward today. Let the alligators negotiate with him.
