 Landrieu 1 in 3 chance

In Louisiana, Landrieu still has only about a 1-in-3 chance of winning even when her incumbent status is included. Her polling at this point isn’t good enough for incumbency to put her over the top.

In the closest races, however, incumbency may very well turn a loser into a winner.

Duck Governor

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R) will appear on the season premiere of A&E’sDuck Dynastyon June 11, 2014.

According to the network, Jindal will be presenting Willie Robertson, the CEO of the family’s business, with thefirst ever“Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence,” which honors “homegrown Louisiana businesses that grow and provide more opportunity, more jobs and more commerce.”…..

The state already subsidizes thirty percent of the program’s local production spending in the form of tax credits that can be redeemed to cash. As Ed Krayewski atReasonargued, this means it’s possible that the state is spending upwards “of $70,000 per episode on payroll alone.”

The appearance will provide the probable 2016 presidential candidate with national exposure as he prepares for the Republican primaries.

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.
