Is there no end to the pig-ignorance and sheer venality of the people in the Ruling Class these days? Marie Antoinette would certainly have had enough class to be appalled at Barbara Bush’s assessment of the situation in New Orleans:
In a segment [on American Marketplace] on the surge of evacuees to the Texas city, Barbara Bush said: “Almost everyone I’ve talked to says we’re going to move to Houston.”
Then she added: “What I’m hearing which is sort of scary is they all want to stay in Texas. 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 (she chuckles slightly) is working very well for them.”
Fuck you, Barbara.
