Sen Landrieu

Anderson Cooper took it to her the other day and I really loved seeing it. She appeared to be a typical government servant, playing the game and not doing shit. Well, today it seems she's tired of playing along and has begun to complain. Well, actually it was yesterday that her press release came out.

Anyway, she has one paragraph that is such a defining statement of the BWH that I'm sure none of you are shocked (which is in itself shocking):

But perhaps the greatest disappointment stands at the breached 17th Street levee. Touring this critical site yesterday with the President, I saw what I believed to be a real and significant effort to get a handle on a major cause of this catastrophe. Flying over this critical spot again this morning, less than 24 hours later, it became apparent that yesterday we witnessed a hastily prepared stage set for a Presidential photo opportunity; and the desperately needed resources we saw were this morning reduced to a single, lonely piece of equipment. The good and decent people of southeast Louisiana and the Gulf Coast -- black and white, rich and poor, young and old -- deserve far better from their national government.
