Senator From State Too Incompetent to Prevent One of Its Major Cities from Being Submerged Underwater Wants to Tell DC How to Run Its Schools

From today's Washington Post:
U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu's office acknowledged yesterday that she has blocked a vote on D.C. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty's schools takeover legislation, citing concerns about the bill brought to her attention by Board of Education President Robert C. Bobb. Scott Schneider, a spokesman for Landrieu (D-La.), said the senator wants to ensure that the District's state education functions operate with enough autonomy from the rest of the school system.
You know, the takeover plan that the DC City Council, elected by DC - not Louisiana- voters, has approved. It's bad enough Republicans trampled on homerule, now the Democrats are doing it too? Senator Landrieu should focus her attention on improving her corrupt, incompetent shit-hole state and leave DC alone. I hate to say this, but I agree with Mayor Fenty:
In a statement, he said, "Any further delay to the implementation of our school reform act not only subverts the will of the elected government of the District of Columbia, it further delays the government's ability to prepare for the first day of school and other critical management decisions."
