Unintended Make Over - More Blues for the Red State

A great number of evacuees crossed the state line to Texas and ended up at Houston’s Astrodome, Reliant Arena and Center, or George R. Brown Convention Center.

The Houston Chronicle reported that the Coast Guard, “in charge of Houston’s mega-shelters,” said that by last Wednesday a majority of the near 25,000 evacuees had already dispersed; some to family, others to shelters in other parts of state and country, and some had financial means to go it alone.

The paper also reports more than 115,000 Louisianans found their way to other regions of Texas; some to Dallas, others to San Antonio, still others to Austin, Corpus Christi, Lubbock, Amarillo, Belton, and Reed Arena in College Station at Texas A&M.

With all the moving about, one can't help but anticipate that more than a few will likely remain in the area. One possible political outcome from the rash of New Orleans transplants is a shift in demographics: more Democratic voters in the Lone Star state.

What delicious irony if they were to remain in Texas, register and tilt the scarlet red state to Democrats in next year’s election.

Perhaps Moveon.org can open a shelter right smack in the middle of Tom DeLay’s district to help the process along; the accomodations would definitely be better than those we've witnessed in Bushvilles along the state and nation.
