Mary Landrieu should make Edwin Edwards proud. After being criticized for taking $100 million in earmarked aid for Louisiana as part of Harry Reid’s health care bill, Landrieu shot back:

“I will correct something. It’s not $100 million, it’s $300 million, and I’m proud of it and will keep fighting for it,” Landrieu told reporters after her floor speech. “But that is not why I started this health care debate; I started this health care debate for all the reasons I just mentioned in my statement” on the floor.

In your face, people.

How are you going to “keep fighting for it” unless you keep voting “yes” on the bill, Mary? I think you may have just revealed something here. Inadvertently.
