Today's Good Blog

and another Katrina blog story. Evander Holyfield is in my Cool Person book now.

This is where I found the DeLay story from last week. . I keep trying to get people to say HOLY COW! WHAT KIND OF A MORON COULD SAY THIS TO SUVIVORS? ***

But so far, I'm the only one who's wondered what DeLay was drinking or smoking that day. He had to be on something. You try it. Go up to some kids you've never met but you know have very recently lived through a disaster, are displaced, have lost their homes and possessions and perhaps even family members. Now insist they admit they're having fun and 'it's like summer camp'. See? Can't do that sober, can you.

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?"


***You didn't honestly think I could go this many days in a row without a spot of outrage, did you?


  1. But there's so much out there to spark outrage. How do you focus? It's like those descriptions of the autistic sensorium: everything has equal weight; selectivity is damn near impossible.

    I feel overwhelmed most of the time.

  2. The man is clearly a flippin' idiot.


    (Hey, Kate! Looks like I might win your crit! Whoo-hoo!)

  3. der...ugh....and having bamboo shoved under my fingernails is like a manicure.....

    Come on, I am sure the media is making this stuff up....right???right???

  4. that one deserves outrage. grrrr.

  5. that deserves more than a spot sugs

  6. I liked a comment a mother posted when she relayed this "camp" comment to her 10 year old daughter. "Well, they should've asked him to stay the night, then. Isn't he rich?" Good for her, a sharp and cutting mind at age 10! There just might be hope for the future after all.

    (Kate, dammit, your blog word verification keeps insulting me. This time it's fuskyew. Yeah, fusk yew right back, blogger!)
