"This is the largest disaster in the history of the United States, over an area twice the size of Europe," Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) said.

Okay, getting back to geography here for a minute. Can someone please send Senator Stevens from Alaska back to remedial geography class for a semester. PLEASE?!

Last time I checked, the continent of Europe was, oh, pretty damn big! (see world map above) But Stevens claims that the Hurricane Katrina disaster covers an area TWICE the size of Europe. Huh? To say that his statement stretches the bounds of credulity is far too kind. Instead, the appropriate phrase is, "HE'S AN IDIOT!!!"

May we please have some intelligent leaders for a change? PLEASE?!
