RUSH: I saw this yesterday on the web at www.BayouBuzz.com, and I haven't seen it anywhere else, but this BayouBuzz.com is reporting that yesterday Senator Mary Landrieu, Louisiana, had an outrageous outburst in which she remarked, quote, “We would have been better off if the terrorists had blown up our levees.”
That's what she's reported as having said, “We'd be better off if the terrorists had blown up our levees.” You know, Kathleen Blanco is out there whining and moaning about all the federal money that hasn't showed up, and you've got local officials down there that botched this left and right.
It's easy to dump on Bush. That's all you have to do today to deflect attention from yourself if you're a politician, any party, dump on Bush. But what is this, Louisiana would have been better off if a terrorist had blown up the levees? Did she think there would have been aid money coming faster, faster efforts to rebuild the levees, would there have been more national sympathy if terrorists had blown up the place rather than a hurricane?
But think of a US Senator saying this. Not that far from 9/11, folks. “We'd have been better off if terrorists had blown up our levees.”

Another outrageous case of hoof-in-mouth disease. I don't know what's wrong with politicians the last few days, saying such stupid, stupid things...
