Here's another example of political hypocrisy

newsroom@islandpacket.comMay 19, 2014 

Despite the many examples of lawmakers' outright gall and disrespect for the intelligence of the American people, Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana recently took the prize.

She gave an impassioned speech about her support for the Keystone XL Pipeline. She, who is in a tough fight to keep her seat, has now given her full support for this project.

Why, you ask, is she for it now and putting on a show on the Senate floor? Simple. She knows that dingy Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid would never allow any bill supporting this project to come up for a vote.

Darn hypocrite.
