More Join "I'm with Mary" Landrieu Ads; Maness Fights Gators
Written by 

im-with-mary 1Today, Sen. Mary Landrieu launched the I'm with Mary campaign. Voters have already seen a crucial part of it, though: the TV ad featuring Boysie Bollinger supporting Sen. Landrieu due to her unique position as Chairman of the Senate Energy Committee.

 The campaign also features Wade Kodrin, a military veteran who moved to New Orleans to help rebuild homes after Katrina. Cherie Teamer, a spokeswoman for the Landrieu campaign said: "The I'm with Mary campaign reflects Mary's broad and deep support from people in Louisiana—Republicans, Democrats, Independents, men and women. Whether it is her successful efforts to create high-paying energy jobs, make flood insurance affordable or restore our coast, people know they can count on Mary to deliver for them when it matters the most."

One of Sen. Landrieu's opponents, Col. Rob Maness, just launched his own commercials on TV and radio. Instead of a shipyard magnate, Maness’s TV ad features an alligator, a metaphor for liberal politicians who "are willing to destroy every last vestige of our liberties and independence," according to Maness.

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.
