Children in Charge.

Appearing on ABC's "This Week" four days after Katrina's floodwaters swamped New Orleans, Landrieu complained: "If one person criticizes [Louisiana], or says one more thing, including the president of the United States, he will hear from me - one more word about it after this show airs and I - I might likely have to punch him - literally."

After saying she stood by her ugly comments, the Louisiana Democrat also offered praise for the president on Friday, saying the Katrina reconstruction plan he outlined in his speech was "innovative and bold."

Now wonder why NOLA is such a mess. Mary Landrieu's comment is juvenile at best. Adults do not threaten others with violence when criticized. Adults do not waste goodwill making such comments especially when they are in need!

Indeed. NOLA's plight is not over. Those who are supposed to be in charge still can not coordinate. There are statements telling people from certain parts of the city they can return and there are other statements telling all people not to return. One would think, they would catch a clue and start coordinating with each other. Sigh.

A big HT to Michelle Malkin.

Are you going to punch ME Mary?
