Edwin Edwards vote for the kook? Webcast today
Written by 

edwards-trinaIs "vote for the crook" being replaced by "Vote for the kook"?

How else can you explain the decision by Edwin W. Edwards, four-term ex-governor of Louisiana, who has decided to jump into the ring for the Sixth Congressional District of Louisiana.


After all, Edwards, 86, is a convicted felon. The last time he resurrected his political career, he beat Nazi, David Duke for the governor’s position. At that time, the slogan was "vote for the crook".

After spending roughly a decade under federal sentencing, Edwards married for the third time, this time to a woman 50 years his younger. His last public foray, The Governor's Wife, was a failed reality TV show. He is the proud father of a brand-new son, made possible, due to medical science and frozen sperm.

But, throughout the decades he has defied odds, remade realities and is now setting the bar for political controversies.

So, has the 'crook" become a "kook"? Or, is the sly gray fox, as he is known, ready to shock the state and the nation once again, by overcoming great odds, a totally different political landscape and a stresses of age and life's challenges.

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.
