Somehow, paraphrasing Churchill is strangely appropriate for describing the purchase of a woman from Louisiana... and in this case, the price was $300 million.
Frankly, Sen. Landrieu ain't all that hot. But then, clearly for her, it was always just a matter of price. "Louisiana Purchase?" "Cash for Cloture?" "Pride in her payoff?"
Like any other slut, money was her motivation, and she makes no bones about it.
And so it came to pass that Landrieu walked onto the Senate floor midafternoon Saturday to announce her aye vote -- and to trumpet the financial "fix" she had arranged for Louisiana. "I am not going to be defensive," she declared. "And it's not a $100 million fix. It's a $300 million fix."So, in the end, like for most democrats, it was only a matter of price. The only thing surprising is that she sold her ass for so little. I'm sure that once the sex tapes have played on CSPAN, she'll sell them as a fund raiser.
Clearly, that recent episode with "Cold Hard Cash" Jefferson was the norm... and not the exception for democrats generally, and Louisiana specifically.
