I Am Outraged By The Outrage Over This Outrage

Well, it's no wonder New Orleans turned into a swamp of looting, rape, and primal behavior. The lawlessness reflects the attitude expressed by Louisiana's cutiepie Senator Mary Landrieu in remarks made yesterday:

"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."

Time to break out the butterfly nets for this one. Instead of "fixing the problem, not the blame", everyone is going around pointing fingers. (All levels should be held accountable anyway.) But this is the first that I have heard of a public servant threatening violence against another. But going all the way to the top? I know emotions are running high, especially for someone from the New Orleans area, but people need calm and stability from a leader in the face of crisis.

You won't find a Republican whining like this Democrat is doing.
