Two can play this game

From the johnkerry.com dispatch that just landed in my inbox:

What can they be thinking? Why haven't President Bush, Senator Frist and Speaker Hastert taken off the table the outrageous notion of bestowing more tax cuts on the wealthy at a time like this? How long will it be before they start telling us that tax cuts for the wealthy can provide just the stimulus we need to get the Gulf Coast economy moving again?

Going forward with the GOP's next round of tax cuts for the wealthy would be a bitter betrayal -- a slap in the face to the hundreds of thousands of Katrina survivors struggling to put their lives back together. It's time for the President and his Republican colleagues to send a clear, unambiguous message that they understand the situation our nation is facing. The American people want to hear from them now -- and, until they back off of their tax cuts for the wealthy, we'll make sure they hear from us.

A "slap in the face"? Repealing the estate tax is a "slap in the face" for POOR BLACK VICTIMS? How dare you assume that none of those POOR BLACK AMERICANS will die fifty years from now with MORE MONEY THAN GOD!! Are you not even willing to entertain the possibility of future millionaires among the victims of Katrina?

Dems to victims: "Vote for us! We'll keep you poor!" Sheesh...

The "I Never Thought I'd Say This But GOD BLESS SEAN PENN" Update: Howard Dean is a freaking DOCTOR! But apparently only actors buy boats and go down and try to rescue future millionaires.

Let The Healing Begin UPDATE:

HOUSTON (Reuters) - In the last week, Joseph Brant lost his apartment, walked by scores of dead in the streets, traversed pools of toxic water and endured an arduous journey to escape the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in his hometown New Orleans.

On Sunday, he was praising the Lord, saying the ordeal was a test that ended up dispelling his lifelong distrust of white people and setting his life on a new course. He said he hitched a ride on Friday in a van driven by a group of white folks.

"Before this whole thing I had a complex about white people; this thing changed me forever," said Brant, 36, a truck driver who, like many of the refugees receiving public assistance in Houston, Texas, is black.
