Remember Haiti?

If you haven’t caught this week’s Frontline, an incisive look into January’s earthquake in Haiti and the abysmal relief situation, we highly recommend it:

(Crikey. Let’s not forget that this man and his evangelist buddy, Jerry Falwell, once blamed the 9/11 attacks on gays and the ACLU.)

And it’s hardly shocking the Rush Limbaugh discouraged Americans from contributing to relief efforts, at least those linked at the White House “propaganda” website:
