MPR yesterday afternoon played a section of Draz' bizarre toddler-ish speech wherein he essentially ranted against the color green; anything with the word "green" in it was automatically assumed to be evil in Draz' view, especially if it was meant to help the evil black and brown people city dwellers of Minneapolis.

They followed up with R.T. Rybak's patiently explaining that a) Minneapolis gives nearly $400 million to the state than it gets, and b) the green roof Draz had his temper tantrum against are absorbing rainwater that would otherwise run off into Minneapolis' storm drains (pavement not being known for its liquid-absorption properties) and add a few million gallons to the already-swollen Mississippi.

You'd think that someone who is often quick to express concern about flooding when it affects his constituents (http://www.draz.com/2010/10/2010-flood-6th-update/) might spare a little compassion for those downstream of his congressional district. Or does he only care about you if you can vote for him?
