Behind the Edwards win over Vitter, interview with Tyler Bridges TODAY at 4

edwards vicDid you know that:

Some major democratic leaders tried to convince Jon Bel Edwards to run for Attorney General, rather than Governor of Louisiana?

The information for the “killer” TV ad, Prostitutes instead of Patriots was hatched almost a year before it ran, thanks to research by communications head, Mary Patricia-Wray?

Bob Mann (and by the way, many others) openly suggested the Louisiana Democratic Party support a more moderate conservative rather than backing a can’t-win-Democrat, like Edwards?

A robo-call of President Barack Obama came to Edwards’ aid on Election Day, late enough that it would not be noticed by Vitter supporters, but earlier enough to mobilize the last-minute voters?   

These were just some of the interesting, if not, provocative facts that The Advocate’s Tyler Bridges detailed in a post-election recap of the Louisiana Governor’s Race.

Today, at 4PM, Bridges will be our guest on our online Bayoubuzz Blab to discuss his article in more detail.

You will want to be there to ask him questions and to comment.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
