Thursday, September 1


Anderson Cooper 360 is asking hard questions about the federal government's slow response to Hurricane Katrina and Bush administration. Interviews Senator Mary Landrieu (LA-DINO), who starts to brag on the Congress, the president, and says it'll be time later to talk about what's gone wrong.

Anderson interrupts her. "Excuse me, Senator, but for the past few days I've been seeing dead bodies in the streets and don't appreciate hearing politicians complimenting each other and trumpeting what good they're GOING to do. Do you get the anger that's out here?"

Oh yes, she's angry too. (Wouldn't know it from her demeanor and tone of voice.)

Anderson: "Yeah? Who are you angry at?"

Landrieu: "I'm not angry at anyone, just expressing frustration." She goes on to spout cliches about how great America is.

Andrieu, impatiently: "A lot of people here don't think we're looking so great, they are ashamed at what's happening right here in our country. No-one seems to be taking any responsibility. You say there'll be a time and place later to allot responsibility, but this seems to be the time and the place, people want answers. I've been here several days, and this is the first time I've seen National Guard troops in this town."

Landrieu: "There will be a time to talk about all of that, trust me. (?????) We all know what is happening, and we're trying to do the very best we can." Thanks the president AGAIN.

Anderson: "It's hard to see how this problem is going to get solved."

Anderson tears, chokes up. A very passionate report.
