God did what the Klan couldn't
And for service above and beyond
in the cause of ethinic cleansing,
we award the Serbian crossed shovels
with AK-47 to Rep. Richard Baker of Baton Rouge
This is from the DCCC's Stakeholder, and was run by Atrios
WSJ's Washington Wire (sub req'd):
Two shaky House incumbents, Democrat Melancon and Republican Boustany, hope response to hurricane rallies voters behind them. House Republican campaign chief Reynolds touts chance to market conservative social-policy solutions; Rep. Baker of Baton Rouge is overheard telling lobbyists: "We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did."
Baker explains later he didn't intend flippancy but has long wanted to improve low-income housing.
Emphasis sadly added.
For that ethnic cleaning comment, Rep. Baker wins the Slobodan Milosevic award for crassness in the face of tragedy.
You know, we could bury a whole bunch
of niggers with this stuff.
You can contact Congressman Baker here
