Wow

Barbara Bush, who accompanied the former presidents on a tour of the Astrodome complex Monday, said the relocation to Houston is "working very well" for some of the poor people forced out of New Orleans.

"What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality," she said during a radio interview with the American Public Media program "Marketplace." "And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them."

Punchline, anyone?

I'm surprised Babs wasted her beautiful mind even thinking about the poor.

Some of the transcripts even show where she chuckled (which was right before she got to the part about how it was working out well for them).

Now we know where her idiot son learned sensitivity and tact.

For those who missed the reference, here's a link to an earlier display of Mama Fuckwit's incredible sensitivity:

It made me think of Count de Money (de Monet, de Monet) shooting peasants in History of the World. "I love my people. Pull!"

Walter Jacobsen, aka "The News Gnome," partiall inspiration for the most excellent "Anchorman," has taken up this story on the local Chicago news. Go get 'em, News Gnome.
