A Refreshing Change

Donna Brazile, a talented Democrat political consultant, has a wonderful piece in today's Post.

On Thursday night President Bush spoke to the nation from my city. I am not a Republican. I did not vote for George W. Bush -- in fact, I worked pretty hard against him in 2000 and 2004. But on Thursday night, after watching him speak from the heart, I could not have been prouder of the president and the plan he outlined to empower those who lost everything and to rebuild the Gulf Coast.

This is EXACTLY the type of teamwork we need now. The tin-foil hat conspiracy theorists, the Kos Kids, the trolls at the Democratic Underground, have all been shamed by what Brazile, an African-American from New Orleans, writes. Read the whole article.

I fully expect Ms. Brazile to work her ass off in 2008 to get a Democrat elected President, and Republican strategists ignore her at their peril, but right now we need to work together to get the Gulf Coast back on its feet. I hope there will be more of this spirit of cooperation, from both Democrats and Republicans alike, in this endeavor. This was a class act.

Also, who was it that suggested that in order to aid in the recovery, and help mitigate the expense on the federal budget, each member of Congress should give up on major piece of pork spending in their district? First, we should elect that person to Congress. Second, why isn't this idea getting more attention?

UPDATE: InstaPundit has found some bloggers (imagine that, bloggers breaking a story.) that have found some pork fat.
