Losing the argument and running out of ideas, Louisiana senator Mary Landrieu resorts to a tactic that worked wonderfully for President Obama.

As reported in Politico by Manu Raju:

“I would vote again for the Affordable Care Act. I’m for the Affordable Care Act. Period. End,” Landrieu said in a recent interview.

Evidently, as a rhetorical device, that “period” business isn’t really sufficient.  Tarnished, no doubt, by recent usage by the president.  Hence the “end.”

And if that doesn’t work.  Perhaps she should try shouting a little louder.
