Is it FUN?!
by Caleb Reading
Blogged live from the Astrodome, a charming photo-op exchange between Tom DeLay and three young boys evacuated from New Orleans:
The congressman likened their stay to being at camp and asked, “Now tell me the truth boys, is this kind of fun?”
They nodded yes, but looked perplexed.
The commentor at Wonkette asks: “I Don’t Know, Mr. Majority Leader, Why Don’t You Sleep in a Sporting Facility After Enduring Days of Diminished Food, Water, Plumbing, and Public Safety and Tell Us How [bleeping] Fun It Is?”
Not to mention some of those boys’ neighbors, relatives, pets, and classmates may be dead now, or missing, along with everything they own. Yeah, real fun. Just like camping.
Politicians are so stinkin’ divorced from reality it’s a fright.
