Amid the power outages, property damage, and 31 deaths wrought by Hurricane Irene, we learned a few things about politics. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) wants to offset disaster funds with unrelated spending cuts. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is running out of money and will suspend some money flowing to tornado-ravaged Joplin, Mo. to pay for hurricane relief. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) joked that God sent Irene to get the attention of politicians in Washington, D.C.

On a lighter note, we also learned that Chris Christie (R), ubiquitous on cable TV screens over the weekend, is governor of New Jersey. We learned that from his windbreaker.
