In a feeble attempt at spin control in yesterday's cabinet meeting attended by the press, President Bush vowed to "find out what went right and what went wrong." Note how he pushed the word "right" ahead of "wrong" in order to convey to the public that it's not all that bad.
Um... I hate to break it to you, Dubya but with over 10,000 people DEAD - and that's a lot more than the number of people who died on 9/11 - I'd safely say NOTHING went right!
Always the class act, Dubya's mother Barbara Bush toured the Astrodome in Houston, and along the way she opined that many of the refugees from New Orleans were so poor to begin with that they ought to be pretty happy with their temporary digs in Houston. "What I?m hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas," Barbara Bush said in comments first aired on the public radio program "Marketplace" and reprinted by Editor & Publisher. "Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them."
In the midst of that last line, you can hear the former first lady chuckling.
While Dubya and his mother compete in the insensitivity play-offs, you can make a donation to add to the generous amount already donated by Kuwait's government.
