Blanco and Nagin on Congressional hot-seat...

Last night I had the opportunity to see on C-Span some of the testimony provided by Governor Kathleen Blanco and Mayor Ray Nagin to a Congressional committee yesterday. I saw enough to let me know that the Republicans were trying to pin as much blame on the Governor and the Mayor as possible.

In the tradition of Louisiana politics, Blanco and Nagin were not intimidated by wise-ass Washington politicians. And they were unapologetic in demanding that the Federal government fulfill its responsibility to the people of Louisiana.
