KATRINA: Over Her Head

Bob Somerby collects excerpts from an interview with Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, which make clear how incapable she is of answering even the simplest of questions; really, the excerpts alone tell the story. (Via NRO). This line is one no Republican could get away with:

Mayor Nagin and most mayors in this country have a hard time getting their people to work on a sunny day, let alone getting them out of the city in front of a hurricane.

And I thought Republicans were cynical about big urban political machines. (John Hawkins has more horrendous quotes from Left and Right about the hurricane).

PS - Yes, I know, I'm behind on catching up on some of the other Katrina-related stories and continuing my look at the recriminations, on which I've painted myself into a corner by collecting more links than I really have time to read through. I'll get there eventually.
