Punk of the Week Award

Here we go again with the Punk of the Week Award, where we expose the biggest Punk or Punkette' Punkery for all the non-Punk world to see.

Now, gasp in awe as we unveil this week's joint winners:

Senator (p)Rick Santorum (R-PA)
Rep. Richard Baker (R-LA)
Rep. Dennis Hastert (R-IL)

Why these three, you ask? These Punks couldn't muster much in the way of sympathy for the hundreds of thousands displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Santorum, whose vendetta against the National Weather Service in favor of private weather businesses in his state, suggested that the NWS had gotten Katrina wrong. Excuse me, Oh Great Fetus-Hugger, but the NWS got it exactly right - 'twas FEMA blew it out their ass. Santorum also thinks that we should punish those who stayed behind after the evacuation orders came out. Good job there, Uber-Punk. People with nothing left and now having to work for less than minimum wage, and you, you rich spoon-fed prick want to fine them? Hastert suggested razing New Orleans and building elsewhere (maybe call it "Jazzland" and set it up as a theme park?) while Baker, who's FROM Louisiana, said "We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did."

Monumental insensitivity, and these Punks have the wrought-iron gall to tell others not to point fingers. I say you SHOULD point fingers, point them until these rubes are pockmarked with little red spots, or until they stop being Punks.
