    Thumbs down $13 million in ice for Hurricane Isaac allowed to melt

    Remember, this happened under Gov. Bobby Jindal's watch. He will probably run for something. Not so sure he has proven himself a true Republican though...

    The Governor's Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) ordered 45 million pounds of ice during Hurricane Isaac at a cost of $17.4 million. The ice was ordered from Pelican Ice. With all associated costs figured in, including transportation, Louisiana paid $28 dollars per ten pound bag of ice, the reports says.

    28 fucking dollars a bag!!! I bet Pelican Ice made some healthy contributions to good ole Bobby's campaign!

    Maybe they used it for drinking water. 550,000 of clean water doesn't go very far. I always thought BJ was a pretty stand up guy, as long as you could keep up with what he was saying.
