Steve, You Suck

Last autumn I sat in the Fort Greene Observatory and thought that the hurricane season had been very kind to the Eastern Seaboard, then in late-October a Category 1 storm traveled up the Gulf Stream to smote New Jersey with a lunar-intensified tidal surge. The coast was devastated by the water and wind. Governors sought relief from Congress and the GOP responded by delaying any funding as a punishment to the Tristate area supporting the re-election of President Obama. This week Rep. Steven Palazzo of Biloxi, Mississippi district voted against a $9.7 billion relief package to victims of Hurricane Sandy. Palazzo's office did not immediately respond to TPM's requests for comment. Update: A spokeswoman for Palazzo provided TPM with a statement Friday in which she said the congressman hopes the debate over aid to victims of Hurricane Sandy will prompt a "national discussion on disaster relief reform." Read the statement here. I tried to contact his office via email to call him an asshole. I enter the zip code 39535 for Biloxi. I emailed that he was an asshole. I have yet to receive a response. ps he does have John Edwards hair. Is that a good thing?
