Will Gusman Run For New Orleans Mayor vs. Landrieu?
Written by 

gusmanWe'll leave our crescent city brethren to sort through these rumors...but:

Several sources have indicated that Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman has been mulling running for Mayor of the Big Easy. 

With murders spiraling out of control down there, a candidate with law enforcement credentials might be able to crack Mitch's powerful political base. Furthermore, African-Americans have been speaking frankly about the lack of Af-Am elected officials in a city that is more than 60% black. With the city council about to add another white woman (Councilwoman Stacy Head is expected to win the open At-Large seat) to a citywide position, would the combination of the two elements make a popular, experienced politician like Sheriff Gusman have a chance in 2014? It seems like a long way away.

Through the magic of the internet, we are also informed that Gusman is a former city council member, and Ivy-league grad, and a lawyer from Loyola. Far from being a one-note law enforcement candidate, Gusman might be able to show off his executive pedigree as well

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
