If you happened to see ‘Meet the Press’ last week, you saw the moderator, Tim Russert, challenge Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard about the facts of a very emotional story that Broussard recounted on MTP soon after the Katrina disaster. Apparently, as he tearfully told the story of the elderly mother of one of his employees waiting for help in her nursing home, Broussard misstated certain aspects of the timeline.
But Broussard stood up under the would-be withering attack that Russert reserves especially for Democrats. Broussard pushed back:
“Listen, sir, somebody wants to nitpick a man’s tragic loss of a mother because she was abandoned in a nursing home. Are you kidding? What kind of sick mind, what kind of black-hearted people want to nitpick a man’s mother’s death? They just buried Eva last week. I was there at the wake. Are you kidding me? That wasn’t a box of Cheerios they buried last week.”
Because of this courageous challenged to the supine, calcified MSM establishment, Buzzflash has named Broussard as the recipient of its Wings of Jusice award.
