Palazzo goes on a strange tour, then flip-flops

Roll Call just ran a story stating that south Mississippi Republican congressman Steven Palazzo has flip-flopped on Hurricane Sandy relief, and will be supporting it instead of railing against it.  But that's not all.

According to the New York Daily News, Palazzo apparently hopped in a plane and flew up to New York and New Jersey to "tour the damage" from Hurricane Sandy.  When he arrived, he dropped into the offices of fellow Republican congressman Michael Grimm, but Grimm wasn't in.  (How pathetic must that have seemed?)  Rejected, Palazzo then went to the local office of Rep. John Runyan (R - NJ), who gave him a tour.  (Said tour was apparently needed by Palazzo as he thought all of the footage of devastation was rigged.)

I'm not sure which is more embarrassing:  the flip-flop, not knowing to call ahead, or actually needing to see the devastation firsthand before deciding to support relief.

Good Lord, man.

You would have thought he would have remembered what a Hurricane ravaged area looked like and not needed a "refresher" tour.
