    (a) A question about the propriety of taking a five-week vacation when U.S. soldiers were dying in Iraq.

    (c) A question about why he flew to California instead of Louisiana after he heard about the New Orleans flooding.
    (d) A question about the propriety of wasting so much fuel on trips to New Orleans that had no purpose but to make the public think he was in charge.

    11. Senator Rick Santorum (R-Pa.).
    (b) Complained about the people who refused to evacuate, and suggested that "there may be a need to look at tougher penalties on those who decide to ride it out and understand that there are consequences to not leaving."

    12. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-La.).
    (d) Said that if anyone, including George W. Bush, spoke another word trying to blame local officials for the magnitude of the disaster, "I might likely have to punch him. Literally."

    13. Representative Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.).
    (c) Said of Dick Cheney, "I would like to believe he’s sick rather than just mean and evil."

    14. Representative Richard Baker (R-La.).
    (a) Said that God "finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans."

    15. Representative Tom DeLay (R-Texas).
    (e) Approached three newly homeless children in the Astrodome and said, "Now, tell me the truth, boys, is this kind of fun?"

    16. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.).
    (f) Said of George W. Bush’s photo op in San Diego as New Orleans flooded, "The President was enjoying the day; he was strumming a guitar. I don’t deny him the pleasures of office, but people were drowning."

    That means that lamont adds 6 points, while fumpton adds only 1.

    The current scores are:

    justbill 5, bede 1, fumpton 4, jras 1, lamont 6

    (b) does indeed sound right, but the correct answer is (a) "We've got to solve problems. We’re problem-solvers."

    No incremental score, so the standings remain:

    justbill 5, bede 1, fumpton 3, jras 1

    the question is how much that Manhattan shopper donated to charity. If she can shop at Ferragamo, she should have some extra cash lying around for those affected by the hurricanes.
