    Sen. Landrieu Touts The Second Louisiana Purchase

    11/13/2007

    If you don't think political norms about spending and earmarks have changed for the worse, take a look at today's screen shot of Senator Mary Landrieu's Senatorial web site (site and graphics also paid for by taxpayers, BTW) touting twelve billion in new spending. As one friend put it, "The Louisiana purchase only cost the United States $15 million. I am not sure what that is with inflation, but it still might be less than the $12 billion we paid for the state last week." Too true.
