Defend This ...

"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."
-- Barbara Bush on the victims of Hurricane Katrina at the AstroDome

Go ahead, Rabid Red Staters, tell we Democrats (and sane Republicans) how evil we are for daring to look down on Bush and his circle in the wake of this disaster.

"She was taken out of context!", you'll cry. "She was saying that everyone loves the hospitality in Texas and they want to stay."

Yeah, she was taken out of context, like Pat Robertson was taken out of context when he said we should "take out" Chavez.

Even if Barbara didn't mean anything malicious, she should still be ridden out of town on a rail for sheer insensitivity and stupidity.

Because, hey, what poor person in their right mind wouldn't trade their spouse getting swept away to her death in exchange for a debit card loaded with two grand?

Beth: YOU GO GIRL!!!! Just sent the same quote to a couple of other Blog sites (moxiegirl & democratic veteran). Just shows EXACTLY how shallow the gene pool is for the current resident of 1600. The entire world can now be aware of the VERY, VERY basic reasons for this country's problems. The ABSOLUTE, TOTAL disconnect between the Rapeapublicans and Real People is mind boggeling.
