Orleans Parish Democratic Party snub of Landrieu is a shock
Written by 

landrieu-allianceI must tell you that I am surprised if not shocked.  Why?   Because the Orleans Parish Democratic Party has recently decided to support, not Mitch Landrieu,  not a Landrieu in New Orleans, but Judge Michael Bagneris for the next New Orleans mayor. 

 So why does that surprise me?

Well, we're talking about a Landrieu in New Orleans.  Now, it wouldn't surprise me if the Greater New Orleans Republican Party decided to not support a Landrieu.  That's an easy one after all it's a Landrieu and Republicans generally don't like Landrieus.  

Also the opportunity to weaken US Sen. Mary Landrieu, Mitch Landrieu's sister, is an awesome opportunity.  But we will see.  

So will this endorsement make a difference in this upcoming election?

I don't think so. 

I still would place my money on Mitch Landrieu, that's if I were a betting man. 

But this brushoff and some say this "lack of faith in his governing certainly does not help Mitch Landrieu should he decide to run for statewide office, such as-- governor?

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.
