Katrina: Marie-Antionette-isms

These took me all of five minutes to collect:

Urban Renewal:
The Wall Street Journal reported that Representative Richard Baker of
Baton Rouge was overheard telling lobbyists: "We finally cleaned up
public housing in New Orleans. We couldn’t do it, but God did."

Reaching out to our Children:
"Now tell me the truth boys, is this kind of fun?" – Tom Delay (Tommy Boy) to flood-refugee kids.

"I’m going to go home and walk my dog and hug my wife and, maybe
get a good Mexican meal and a stiff margarita and a full night’s sleep.
And then I’m going to go right back to FEMA and continue to do all I
can to help these victims,"  – Michael Brown (Brownie) prior (?) to his removal from Katrina Relief Ops (though not from his job as director of FEMA).

Compassionate Conservatism:
"Almost everyone I’ve talked to says we’re going to move to Houston […] 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 (chuckles ) is working very well for them." Babara Bush (Babs)

"Brownie, you’re doing a helluva job." – George W. Bush, President, The United States of America.
