Platformus Santorum: Blame the Victim
September 7, 2005 8:53 AM Subscribe
Rick Santorum isn't afraid to kick people
even when it's not popular to do so. Yesterday he showed off his future Presidential nature once again by calling for tougher penalties for people who won't
evacuate when told to by the government (no clarification if there's a distinction for can't
). Given the evidence that race and economic class were primary indicators
of whether or not people were able to be evacuated from New Orleans before the disaster--is he being dense, insensitive or just playing to his traditional values base?
