It was horrible what she said, the way she said it, and everything.

Why did some of you come in here and try to explain it or make excuses or what-not?

a quote from someone equally clueless, but at least she's got a heart:

I saw that when she was on Larry King, "Larry I'm so frustrAAted".and the way she kept wiping her tears w/ her pinky fingers. At least she does seem far more sensitive about their plight than Barbara Bush is, but then again that's not so difficult.

maybe she was the one who gave him the great line about how Katrina is a "temporary disruption."

DeLay to evacuees: 'Is this kind of fun?'


U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's visit to Reliant Park this morning offered him a glimpse of what it's like to be living in shelter.

While on the tour with top administration officials from Washington, including U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao and U.S. Treasury Secretary John W. Snow, DeLay stopped to chat with three young boys resting on cots.

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

They nodded yes, but looked perplexed.

With a group of reporters and press officers in tow, DeLay then moved on, chatting with others, including a local IRS representative. He then visited with job recruiters set up in Reliant Park.

Earlier DeLay spoke with volunteers and thanked them for their service.

Unreal.

I can see a parent trying to make it a game of sorts to keep young kids from freaking out in that situation, but for someone in the public eye to say it just boggles the mind.

Are these people that freaking clueless to think it's going to make a good soundbite?

And for anyone in that position to not be aware that anything they said will be made into a soundbite is kidding themselves.
