Empty Suit: No Hacks For Me

It's clear John Edwards has lost his mind. Get a load of this one.

Edwards wants law against "Brownies"
NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Former Sen. John Edwards said at a Hurricane Katrina conference he would propose what he called "Brownie's Law" requiring that qualified people, not political hacks, lead key federal agencies.

Edwards, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, drew laughter when he spoke on Monday of the proposal at the "Hope and Recovery Summit" ahead of the two-year anniversary of the storm on Wednesday.

"It's an absolute travesty to have people who are essentially political hacks in a very responsible position," he told the audience at the University of New Orleans."
So what are you Mr. Edwards, if not the ultimate in an empty suit political hack?

Dealing with natural disasters is a local jurisdictional issue. Yes, the Fed's can come in and help, but only to the extent allowed by the local authorities.

In the case of Katrina, the New Orleans local officials have screwed it up from the very beginning, trying to grab as many Federal dollars as they can in the process.

But they're Democrats, so the media blames the White House instead.
