Subject: RE: BS: Rush Limbaugh blames Katrina's victims
Rep. Livingston of (R.-La.) angrily blames "liberals and environmentalists" for the disaster. Can anyone guess why ?

IIIIIIIIIIII'm sorry ! Time's up !

It's 'cause liberals and environmentalists have "opposed the Army Corps of Engineers for years," and wanted to cut its budget (he didn't say for what). Also, "They want to turn the whole area into an alluvial plain and bring in Indians and have buffalo running around !"

That sounds super to me, if a little impractical. Remember how the Rev. Jerry Falwell fingered liberals, hedonists, gays, and lesbians as the real perpetrators of 9/11 ?

Source: my own eyes and ears tuned to one of the cable news networks last night. Livingston really said this stuff.
