Mary Landrieu, Democratic knucklehead

Mary Landrieu, cute blonde bimbette, who also works part-time as the Democratic senator from Louisiana, being interviewed by Chris Wallace of Faux News : (via Daily Howler). Wallace is asking Landrieu why a number of schoolbuses seen underwater here were not used for evacuating New Orleans residents. Mary, unfortunately, responds by exhibiting behavior akin to that of a child caught stealing from a cookie jar.

LANDRIEU (continuing directly): In other words, this administration did not believe in mass transit. They won't even get people to work on a sunny day, let alone getting them out—

WALLACE: But Senator, there were hundreds of buses sitting in that parking lot. Can I just ask the question?

LANDRIEU: You can, but let me finish, if I could, please.

WALLACE: Well, look in the picture here. There were hundreds of buses in parking lots. The city and the state—

LANDRIEU: That is underwater. Those—

WALLACE: It wasn't underwater before the—

LANDRIEU: Those buses were underwater. Those buses—

WALLACE: They weren't underwater on Saturday. They weren't underwater on Sunday.

Now thats a deer caught in headlights and getting sodomized simultaneously.

And later,

LANDRIEU (continuing directly): ...... Now is not the time for finger-pointing. Now is the time to rebuild. So, I'm asking the White House to stop sending out press releases blaming local and state officials.

You know what, theres nothing wrong in pointing fingers. As long as you follow one simple rule. Once you are done with the finger pointing, DO NOT express self-righteous indignation at other people's finger pointing. Wallace rightly berates her.

WALLACE: OK, thank you. But you're the one who's done the finger- pointing. You were the one who, on the Senate floor, talked about the federal response being “incompetent and insulting” to the people of Louisiana. You were the one—if I might—and, I want to ask you, also, because you've also pointed the finger at the Bush administration for failing to spend enough on flood control. Here's what you said this week on the Senate floor. Let's take a look...

The Senator may have her problems but "cute blonde bimbette" is out of line.

why is cute blonde bimbette outa line.

I know that "dumb blonde" is a cliche, and not a true statement, but it does not come about without cause.

And in this case, it is perfectly suited to the subject.

Unless you were meaning that she is not really pretty or cute...vis a vis beauty...:)

I'm not sure whats out of line : the word bimbette? Her vague response to the buses being underwater strikes me as being pretty bimbetty. As well as her pointing fingers and indignation at other people pointing fingers at her.

You know, I would really like to know in what ways the local and state officials failed in regards to this situation, but I can't really tell what's going on with all the media misinformation.
