In One Eye

Dear Leader's most recent use of a catastrophe to advance his own agenda has been discussed at great length by Josh Marshall, but at least one Republican sees the callousness of the Gulf Coast Wage Cut.
[New York's] Mayor Bloomberg yesterday criticized the White House for suspending a law that requires employers to pay a certain level of wages to construction workers rebuilding in the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast.
As much as I despise Bloomberg for his stances on civil rights (see here and here), at least in this instance he sees the innate injustice of the Washington decision.
