Are Louisiana US Senate Race TV Commercials By Vitter And Melancon In Honest Parallels?
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

steve_sabludowsky01The Louisiana US Senate race 2010 or the "main match" is now running in parallel with both David Vitter and Charlie Melancon taking to the television airwaves.  

 

Democrat Melancon released a television commercial this week and in it, he is saying that his opponent, Republican Vitter has not been honest to the people of Louisiana. In the commercial, called "Honest", the Congressman quickly refers to Vitter and then talks about himself in an introductory manner.     

David Vitter, today released his television ad called "Parallel Univere".   In doing so, Vitter attempts to contrast the hardships of the average citizens to those who are benefiting from Melancon's votes  Vitter once again is trying to link Melancon to President Obama and "wasteful spending" and he takes a swipe at the congressman by suggesting Melancon is not sensitive to the Louisiana citizens but to his own personal perks.

Over the past couple of weeks, the political debate has been over the BP oil spill and the moratorium.  However, in the first "dueling" tv ads, Melancon is claiming Vitter cannot be trusted and the democrat is a  political moderate.   Vitter continues the theme that he has been presenting against Melancon throughout the election.

So, which which commercial do you is the best?  Which do you believe will be the most effective?

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
