Wow.

The Houston Chronicle launched a blog from the Houston Astrodome, where thousands of New Orleans residents, displaced by Hurricane Katrina, are being sheltered.

In the latest blog posting, the writer recounts an unbelievable conversation between Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay and three boys currently living in the Astrodome.

"DeLay stopped to chat with three young boys resting on cots.

The congressman likened their stay to being at camp and asked, 'Now tell me the truth boys, is this kind of fun?'

They nodded yes, but looked perplexed."

Katie Schleiper, special to the Daily DeLay, responded: "...DeLay then gave each boy a firm handshake and said 'Now, I hear that all you evacuees will be receiving $2,000 in disaster relief money and let me tell you the best way to get some relief in THIS town is a little contribution to my PAC. Believe me, I can make things happen for you. You like casinos?'"
