Beth, this is for you:

Listen to what the former White House Lady, Barbara Bush, has to say about the victims of Katrina (maybe stupidity runs in the family).

Hurricane Katrina victims stay at the Astrodome for shelter and food in Houston

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," Mrs. Bush told American Public Media's "Marketplace" program, before returning to her multi-million dollar Houston home.

On the tape of the interview, Mrs. Bush chuckles audibly as she observes just how great things are going for families that are separated from loved ones, people who have been forced to abandon their homes and the only community where they have ever lived, and parents who are explaining to children that their pets, their toys and in some cases their friends may be lost forever. Perhaps the former first lady was amusing herself with the notion that evacuees without bread could eat cake. What a family! (source:

Well, I guess he was underpriviliged anyway and we know that Mrs. Bush does not want to waste her beautiful mind:

But why should we hear about body bags, and deaths, and how many, what day it's gonna happen, and how many this or what do you suppose? Or, I mean, it's, it's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that? And watch him (George W) suffer."— Barbara Bush on "Good Morning America," March 18, 2003

There is nothing more to add.
