Nasty Republican Quote of the Day

Political Wire:

"We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did." -- Rep. Richard Baker (R-LA), quoted by the Wall Street Journal, "overheard" in a conversation with lobbyists. "Baker explains later he didn't intend flippancy but has long wanted to improve low-income housing."

Ah, yes, improving public housing with hurricane, floods, devastation, homelessness and an untold number of deaths.
