Recently defeated Senator Mary Landrieu isn’t sure where life will take her in the coming years, but she knows where she’ll be this Friday — visiting with the Louisiana Workforce Commission office to file for unemployment benefits.

“It’s been almost two decades since she’s had to seriously think about having a job, and that’s a tough transition,” said former a Landrieu staffer who asked to not be named and is now unemployed himself.

“She just wants to sign up for unemployment benefits like any other laid off average Joe with a net worth of $1.8 million.”

Although the former senator may be down she assured those closest to her in her $2.5 million, 7,300 square foot Washington, D.C. non-mansion that she is not out.

“She just needs some time off to lay on mom and dad’s couch and reflect; At least until her $48,000 a year pension kicks in or she can catch on with her brother’s staff when he becomes governor.”

Landrieu, who leaves Congress after 18 years of service, has vowed to continue fighting for Louisiana in whatever she does including reporting every “face” picture that Senator Bill Cassidy uploads to Facebook as inappropriate.
