Does She Really Not Know, Or Just Making a Point?

Enquiring minds, etc.:

Sen. Mary Landrieu called Friday for President Bush to appoint a cabinet-level official to direct the federal response to the devastation along the Gulf Coast caused by Hurricane Katrina.

Landrieu, a Louisiana Democrat, said she asked Bush during his tour of New Orleans on Friday to act within 24 hours to put a single official in charge of the overall relief effort who would report directly to him.

There is a cabinet-level official in charge of this (allegedly, anyway). That would be Michael Chertoff of Homeland Security.

Was this Sen. Landrieu’s way of taking a shot at Chertoff, or did she really not know that DHS is a cabinet-level position?

  1. Mr Chertoff may be in charge, but there sure seems to be a hell of a lot of bureaucrats in charge of mutiple agencies which are not working together. This divided government mess is slowing the whole relief process down.
