Don't Blame Us. We Voted for Kerry and Blanco!

Louisiana Republicans, bereft of any ideas other than trying to gain political advantage from the catastrophe of Katrina and the disaster of Rita, are reportedly printing up bumper stickers that say, "Don't Blame Me, I Voted for Jindal."

The idea is that Governor Blanco has somehow botched the response to these two storms and that the state would somehow have been better served had the boy genius won the 2003 governor's race.

Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour apparently disagrees. The Republican Governor of our neighbor to the east is putting blame where he feels it justly resides: the Bush administration's FEMA and the Republican controlled Congress.

Perhaps if Jindal and other Republican members of our congressional delegation weren't so busy sucking up to the corrupt leadership of their party and making the 'recovery' safe for no-bid contractors, the people of our state and Governor Barbour's might actually be making progress on this recovery.
