Mary Landrieu Loses It
What an embarrassment
:Senator Mary Landrieu, the Democrat of Louisiana (whose father was a mayor of New Orleans), appears to have finally found her voice after offering only cautious criticism of the federal relief effort in the hurriance catastrophe earlier in the week. Today she promised to literally "punch" anyone, "including the president," who contnued to question the local response to the tragedy, considering the gross federal misconduct.
Appearing on ABC's "The Week" TV program this morning, Senator Landrieu still appeared to be smarting from President Bush's comments, during his national radio address, that state and local bore a fair share of blame for the slow response. On a copter tour of the area, Landrieu said that if she heard any more criticism from federal officials, particularly about the evacuation of New Orleans, she might lose control.
"If one person criticizes them or says one more thing - including the president of the United States - he will hear from me," she said on the ABC program. "One more word about it after this show airs and I might likely have to punch him. Literally."
Translation: How dare he blame it on somebody else when we're trying desperately to blame it on him? Yet another example of Bush Derangement Syndrome in the way these folks fly into a passionate rage whenever anybody dares suggest that the local officials screwed up.

A commenter left this:And what the hell is up with Bush calling the Hurricane effected areas "this part of the world". He said that at least four times in his Friday Press Conference.
And why did he go to California last Monday?
Not sure why the commenter's angry over "this part of the world"; I guess "this part of the country" would be better. And IIRC the reason he went to California was to give a speech.
