While making a photo op in the Astrodome, House Majority Leader and crusader for the vegetative state voting bloc Tom Delay wandered about asking people questions about their experience through this tragedy. One of his gems was:
"Now tell me the truth boys, is this kind of fun?"
He asked this to three young boys who survived the misery that is Katrina. They all nodded their heads, but looked confused.
There have been so many asinine things said during this horrific disaster by politicians, celebrities, news broadcasters, and even fashion consultants that I could spend an hour listing them here. Yes that's right I did say fashion consultants. You'd think people in there position would use sounder judgment. Maybe I'm just expecting too much of people to use the simple virtue of reasoning when making public statements in the wake of human tragedy.
"Howard Dean is a cruel and extremist demagogue. And Howard Dean is as ignorant on John Ashcroft as he is on national security. If this cruel, loudmouth extremist is the cream of the Democrat crop, next November's going to make the 1984 election look like a squeaker." - Tom DeLay
