Traeger, a resident of Forsyth, Mo., is a frequent letter writer to the Springfield News-Leader. As such, she often spouts inflammatory rhetoric designed to provoke a response.
But in Friday's N-L, Traeger seems to have taken a big dive off the high board, right into an empty pool. Normally a right-wing partisan, Traeger must have missed the remarks by President Bush, in which he admitted the feds screwed up their initial response to Hurricane Katrina.
In her highly hilarious rant, Traeger opines:
The media have the inane notion that the federal government has a magic wand that can grant anything. In most national disasters it takes about three days to start helping victims.
Mary, Mary, so contrary. And so far off the radical right's script. Someone get this woman a clue, and fast.
