NOT COMPASSIONATE, NOT CONSERVATIVE Via Kevin Drum, here's Newt Gingrich on the trailer parks being built to house Katrian evacuees:
"The idea that--in a community where we could place people in the private housing market to reintegrate them into society--we would put them in [trailer] ghettos with no jobs, no community, no future, strikes me as extraordinarily bad public policy, and violates every conservative principle that I'm aware of."
