Katrina quotes.

Last night, I read an About columnist's list of "25 Mind-Numbingly Stupid Quotes About Hurricane Katrina And Its Aftermath" (via Throwing Things). Funny that the blog that openly calls itself Right Wing News has a much more varied selection of quotes. One quote that makes both lists is the astoundingly bad "this is working very well for them" that came out of former First Lady Barbara Bush.

Those are both good lists; the RWN blog includes more celebs and minor news folks, and the About list focused more on the political types. It was excellent to see Steven Sailer on the RWN list. I hope we never see him cited as a credible authority again.

Ampersand: I didn't see the Landrieu one (two?), but the About list was heavily concentrated on the federal government. I think Blanco especially deserves a hit, but also Nagin. It just makes no sense to leave them out unless you're trying to be nice to them.

Good. I'm glad some postscript stuff was added. It really is funnier when you spread the criticism around. I mostly looked at the first page, I'll admit. I think the effort to spread it around should have appeared from the beginning.
