Finally Mr. Potato head alias Tim Russert attempts to correct the record.
HOUSTON - The Louisiana official who broke America's heart (or more likely "turned Americas stomach") when he wept on TV about the failure to rescue a colleague's mother in a New Orleans nursing home went back on "Meet the Press" yesterday to face questions about discrepancies in his story.
"Man, get out of my face," Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard told NBC host Tim Russert, who had pointed out that Broussard got dates and details of the death wrong."
Somebody wants to nitpick a man's tragic loss of a mother because she was abandoned in a nursing home? Are you kidding? What kind of sick mind, what kind of black-hearted people want to nitpick a man's mother's death?" he said. "Sir, that woman is the epitome of abandonment."
Broussard's emotional outburst Sept. 4 and his accusation that the federal government's hesitance to send in the cavalry amounted to murder became a much-replayed emblem of Hurricane Katrina's ravages.
Nitpickinging????? This man is not only a liar he's a fraud. The entire premise he used to trash the federal governments response was based on this so-called "nit". His attempt to minimalize the distinction is contemptable and the lowest form of intellectual dishonesty.
