The Soft Bigotry of No Preparations

George Bush, master of wordcraft:
Meeting with Red Cross officials in Washington Sunday, President Bush on Sunday thanked the agency's nearly 5,000 volunteers working at shelters in 19 states helping displaced Louisiana residents, and promised victims a "tidal wave of compassion."
Bush continued: "America is sending roving armed gangs of love to help the good people of New Orleans and loot them of their misery. We will shower them with the dysentery of human kindness, and spread the feces of safety around the floor where they sleep."
