Want to know what's really embarrassing? A Congresswoman who votes for disaster relief for her own red-state voters but not for folks in blue states:
Congresswoman Noem voted against the Sandy relief aid after urging Congress to extend disaster relief for South Dakota during the floods of 2011 and the drought of 2012 [South Dakota Democratic Party, press release, 2013.01.15].
Perhaps Rep. Noem agreed with certain Facebook chatterers who suggested Hurricane Sandy was just cosmic punishment for New Yorkers' and New Jerseyans' voting for Democrats. Or maybe she just doesn't like someone else with the name Christie getting lots of attention. But clearly, she's thinks it's more important to fight imaginary threats like the Big Coin than to provide tangible relief to Americans suffering from real harm.
