Not another rant about the New Orleans disaster and the response to it

Well, maybe it is a bit of a rant. I won't write lines and lines and lines of opinionated verbage about how pathetic the situation was in New Orleans directly after Katrina. Nor will I go on and on about who is to blame or how stupid our president sounds when he speaks off the top of his head.

But I just have to share this article. Here are my favorite little gems from it:

In a segment at the top of the show on the surge of
evacuees to the Texas city, Barbara Bush said: "Almost
everyone I’ve talked to says we're going to move to

Then she added: "What I’m hearing which is sort of
scary is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is
so overwhelmed by the hospitality.

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you
know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she
chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? (Those are my words, not Barbara Bush's)What the hell is wrong with her?
