Video: In Baby Talk, Mary Landrieu Explains BP Accountability

This was a rather bizarre moment after yesterday’s event with President Obama and Louisiana politicians. On her way out of Grand Isle, Mary Landrieu stopped to talk with folks waiting by her helicopter. After taking a photo with a Grand Isle resident, Landrieu, completely unprovoked, breaks out in baby talk explaining BP accountability to a seemingly terrified child.

“I pwomise you, we’ll make that big ole BP pay a lot of money, OK? Billions of dollars, I pwomise you. We’re going to have a big cleanup job and it’s going to get cleaned up, all right?” said Landrieu.
