More "clueless"--HOW COULD THEY?

I find it unbelievable that these people haven't figured out that what they say can be recorded (audio, video, reporters, whatever)! Are they so smug and arrogant that they don't care what Americans think? Or are they so ignorant that they don't even realize that what is coming out of their mouths is so unbelievably offensive? In previous blogs, I've listed Barbara Bush's comment about how much better off Katrina's victims are, how God helped America clean up public housing and how being in a homeless shelter is like "camping" , how Laura Bush cannot even remember the name of the Hurricane that caused so much destruction, and more.

Now I've discovered a collection of them on! It includes:
"I also want to encourage anybody who was affected by Hurricane Corina to make sure their children are in school." –First Lady Laura Bush, twice referring to a "Hurricane Corina" while speaking to children and parents in South Haven, Mississippi, Sept. 8, 2005 (Source)

"I don't want to alarm everybody that, you know, New Orleans is filling up like a bowl. That's just not happening." -Bill Lokey, FEMA's New Orleans coordinator, in a press briefing from Baton Rouge, Aug. 30, 2005 (Source)

"I understand there are 10,000 people dead. It's terrible. It's tragic. But in a democracy of 300 million people, over years and years and years, these things happen." --GOP strategist Jack Burkman, on MSNBC's "Connected," Sept. 7, 2005 (Source)
