Nice headline. It's factually accurate, but not complete.
Today, we learned that Dennis Hastert not only blew off the emergency session of Congress that (he says) he called for yesterday. The humble teacher, the regular guy, the one who's like you and me, donated an antique Lincoln Continental from his massive antique car collection to help fund the relief fund for Katrina.
I applaud the huge donation. Seriously.
I also question how the image of "The Coach" can survive, now that the truth is out.
He also has an antique fire engine (rumored to be worth $80,000) in the collection, which numbers nearly 20 vehicles.
Not bad for a teacher. Who votes against teachers. Wonder where all that dough comes from.
