The BCP Republican Ugly Award of 2005

I was trying to figure our who should win the BCP Republican Ugly award for 2005. It was a toss up between the Congresswoman who questioned fellow Congressman Jack Murtha's patriotism for raising questions about our course in Iraq. Or the Presidents mom.
In the end I decided that Barbara Bush's comment while touring the shelter in Texas where many of the Katrina evacuees had been sent highlighted the condescending elitism of some of those in power in this country. Despite her grandmotherly appearance that comment spoke volumes about how the power elites think about those less fortunate in our country.
