Maybe THIS is what they meant by compassionate conservatism?

Last Tuesday evening I was watching TV and at first thought it might be a case of the liberal news slandering the good Bush name, and then I realized I was watching Fox news who was quoting the president's mom as saying about the evacuees in the Houston Astrodome, "Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this, this is working very well for them." Some people really are too stupid to have kids. Damn... too late!

With these feelings coming from the matriarch of the Republican party, it doesn't come as any shock that on Saturday morning the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Tom DeLay, while on the tour of a shelter with top administration officials from Washington, 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?"

I am reminded of the following sage advice and offer it to Barbara Bush & Tom DeLay: It is better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
