No, instead let's turn our attention to Governor Mitch "Tiny" Daniels. The Indianapolis Star found him pining away this 9/11 for our lost unity:
"The days after that were really the most memorable, I suppose, of my life, because for a short time the nation came together in a way, and its politicians came together in a way, that they just aren't famous for," Daniels said this past week.
Yeah, it was a great time to be alive. Assuming you still were.
"I think it's sad and regrettable that our political class behaves in this way," Daniels said. "The charges, particularly those directed at the federal government, are so obviously bogus. By the time federal assistance is even legal, requested and legal, the death and destruction essentially has occurred.
Class, please take your highlighters and mark the factual errors in the above paragraph. Raise your hand when you reach eight.
"Sure, things could always have been done better, but I just wish people would drop their political hammers for a few weeks, as happened in 2001, and work on the problem at hand."
The whole class found all eight? I'm impressed. Record time, too. Now, would anyone like to hazard a guess as to why Governor Daniels is disappointed at politicians who do their jobs by criticizing the greatest governmental cock-up since Winston Churchill gave up planning military operations, but has nothing whatever to say about politicians in his own party criticizing innocent victims? Please, don't all speak at once.

All's I know is that Republicans keep me safer but not safe. And is this gonna be on the test?
(raises hand) teacher, my marker ran out of yellow stuff before I could finish.
Hey, I remember Mitch coming together after 9/11 and trying to cut off our reconstruction funds because they were going to New York.
Mitch, unfortunately, is unlikely to go fuck himself more fervently than usual just because I say so.
Oh, oh! Since this is a science quiz also, if we talk Mitch into fucking himself, do we get extra credit?
because if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all?
sounds like the typical middle-class hoosier response to unpleasantness.
so -- should we take daniels' silence about hostettler as disapproval?
i await your answers, but i won't be holding my breath.
