GLENN: Let me talk to you about Mary Landrieu. Mary Landrieu is the senator from Louisiana, and she got $100 million ‑‑ explain this, Pat.
PAT: She got ‑‑ there's an article in this new healthcare bill in the Senate version that specifies that any state that's been declared a major emergency or a major disaster area for each of the last seven years and fits several other criteria, like they have a state capitol that's two words in the name.
GLENN: That doesn't really say that, does it?
PAT: Like Baton Rouge. No, I mean, it's not quite that. But it's almost that specific. I mean, it takes like three seconds to determine that Louisiana is the only one.
GLENN: Right. It's three pages. This definition is three pages.
GLENN: So you know when they're defining this, they had to define it in three pages.
PAT: Otherwise they're going to give it to how many states?
GLENN: Right. So it had to be very carefully designed. But if you thought you weren't doing anything wrong, you would have just said Louisiana, okay? So if you ‑‑ it takes really one word. Well, $300 million grant, for, one word, Louisiana.
GLENN: But instead they knew that this was a bribe. They knew this was wrong. So they had to cover it in three pages by defining it very specifically without ever saying the one word: Louisiana. This is a bribe. That's all it is.
PAT: Because Mary Landrieu was on the fence. She was maybe not going to vote for even cloture and so it was reported to be $100 million on Friday and reporters were asking her about this financial fix for Louisiana that got her vote. And she said, I'm not going to be defensive about this, and it's not a $100 million fix. It's a $300 million fix. So she was so arrogant about it that she told them it was triple the bribe. So she may be easy.
GLENN: But she's not cheap.
PAT: But she's not cheap. So I think that's ‑‑ at least that's what I take from that.
GLENN: We're with a high‑class prostitute. That's what we're with.
STU: Right. It's certainly ‑‑
PAT: No, you are not at Motel 6 with this ‑‑
GLENN: No. You are not sitting there in a back alley and saying, "Hey, what do you say, five bucks?" No, no, no. This one comes to your Four Seasons hotel room.
STU: Yeah, and you know what?
GLENN: And does it right.
STU: And doesn't dress really slutty.
PAT: You might even think she's the wife of the CEO she's coming in on.
GLENN: Exactly right.
PAT: You know?
GLENN: There's nobody that's going to look at her and go, oh, my gosh, you're with a whore.
GLENN: You are going to look at her and say, "Oh, wow.
PAT: She's classy.
GLENN: Look at that. And then when somebody whispers, she's a prostitute.
PAT: But you think, okay, but she's not cheap.
PAT: You'll dismiss it because it's like, well, yeah, but she's not getting 20 bucks an hour, right? She's getting 1,000 bucks, 1,000 bucks for the night.
GLENN: She's the one when you say, you're a hooker! You're like, you know, having sex for 100 bucks. She says, it's not 100 bucks. It's $5,000!
PAT: Yeah. And then you respect her. Then you're like, oh, okay.
STU: It's the type of high‑class prostitute that actually purchases a wedding ring so when she's walking through the plaza, people think that she's actually married to the person she's walking in with. That's what we're talking about.
PAT: That's how classy she is.
STU: You don't sell your principles for $50 on the street corner. No, no, no 300 million in a three‑Page definition. That's the way you sell your principles.
PAT: That's right.
GLENN: That's right, they did sell their principles.
