Katrina is all about the Hillary
Kate O'Beirne on the silliness of women in high places:
RE: GOVERNORS AND LOST IN LOUISIANA [Kate O'Beirne]
I haven't been watching as much Katrina coverage as many of my colleagues and our readers because I am working on an article about Hillary Clinton, but the criticisms of Governor Blanco and unfavorable comparisons with Governor Barbour may be relevant to my subject. I have seen a clearly overwhelmed Gov. Blanco's ineffectual handwringing and saw her dismissive quotes about looting while Rich spotted Haley vowing to deal with looters "ruthlessly." If others share the Corner's take on the comparative leadership qualities of these governors, shouldn't Hillary Clinton's boosters be dismayed at the latest example of why voters might be leery of women chief executives?
Normally I would take Kate seriously about this...but it's pretty obvious that she's PMSing and can't think clearly.
We'll check back in a few days when she's thinking straight.
