Another random rant.

Continuing in the Barbara Bush tradition, today Tom Delay stopped to chat to some evacuee kids in Houston:

The congressman likened their stay to being at camp and asked, "Now tell me the truth boys, is this kind of fun?"

Again, just as this did not "work out well for them," loosing ones house, possessions, family members friends, etc etc... IS NOT FUN.

Seriously... where do they get this stuff?! It's unbelievable.

Also, and not surprisingly, the WP reports that almost none of the FEMA Bush appointees had disaster relief experience, and almost all of them were involved in the 2000 recount stuff. The ones that did have experience: yeah, they all left around 2003.

I've read stories about children who said that they were having fun...Delay realizes its not fun to lose all you have, but sometimes, when things get bad, people try to encourage other people by trying to get them to focus on what is going on now, especially children. You can't just say this is someone being heartless, it’s possible that its someone trying to get children's minds off of what happened, the same reason that they are putting in some playground equipment in shelters and people are providing movies and coloring books. This goes to what we talked about the other night, politicians can still be human.

So, do you subscribe to the Barbara Bush school of "this is working out well for them?" :-)
