Landrieu votes for Geithner

The Senate voted 60-34 tonight to confirm tax-cheat Timothy Geithner as Treasury Secretary. He was head of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, but was working for the International Monetary Fund when he had his tax troubles. The whole deal was about $34,000 dollars in back taxes that he paid late. He said it was an oversight. A simple mistake.

Right.

Mary Landrieu voted to confirm.

I'll remember that when it's time to vote against Mary.

Mary always checks the political wind to see which way she will vote. She has no priciples. Obviously, she felt she needed to vote for the crook. I've been voting against her for two elections and will do so again.

Oh, come on, Paw Paw...

Katrina Mary could come knock on my door with the entire squad of Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, promising me untold pleasures of the flesh in return for my vote, and I wouldn't vote for her.
