Favorite Quote Thus Far About the Bridge

Coming from the Minnesota Monitor, an on line paper.

John Hinderaker of Power Line (the well-known rightwing blogger) expressing shock and surprise:

This is the kind of disaster that just doesn't happen in the United States--a bridge spontaneously collapsing, apparently, into a river. It is hard to convey to those who don't live here the astonishment of this sort of catastrophe happening on our most traveled highway.

I was going to comment on this, but I got as far as "what does he think held the bridge up, Adam Smith's invisible hand?" and I realized the quote needs no comment.

Yes. Don't actions have consequences in the Hindracker world? What's he think the FDA and FTA and all the taxes that fed those programs were for? What did he think cutting those taxes would do? Nothing? Tool.

Leaving New Orleans and her people to become part of the international refugee catastrophe isn't something that is supposed to happen in the U.S. either.

The Mississippi is the backbone of the U.S.A., and it is broken -- from the top to the bottom.

Love, C.
