No "sealed with a kiss" or Duck Soup Party for Congressman McAllister

sealed-kissThe Kissing Congressman Vance McAllister announced on Monday that he was not going to kiss-off chances of his becoming a one-year Congrressman.  Reversing a prior public decision, McAllister announced he wanted the people to decide on whether he deserves another chance in US Congress.

 Months ago, a video mysteriusly emerged showing McAllister and a female employee  engaged in a moment of passion, which many believed would "seal with a kiss" his future chances of returning to Congress.  The Louisiana Republican Party, through Chairman Roger Villere, urged him to quit as did Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.

WGSO's Jeff Crouere and  Bayoubuzz.com's publisher Stephen Sabludowsky today during their 990AM radio-Google Hangout webcast discussed the politics of this national news story.  Below is that discussion. 

Crouere: Steve, let's jump into some of the issues I want to discuss with you, wanting to start off, getting your view on "Kissing Congressman" Vance McAllister's decision to run again.  He initially said he was not going to run, he said he was going to serve out the end of the term and leave, he had a change of heart, he said he discussed it with his family, he's going to run again, your thoughts on that decision. 

Sabludowsky: Well, personally I think it is a shame, i think when somebdy violates the trust of the people that person whould not have another opportunity and he did so and so i think it is a shame.  Although he feels he wants the people to decide and I think the people will decide against him.  

Crouere: You don't think, well, look at how the people have been forgiving towards edwin Edwards, towards David Vitter, these were some guys who were involved in some scandals, they were able to win elections afterwards, so would Vance McAllister be able to depend upon these forgiving Louisiana voters who would give him another chance?

Sabludowsky: Not, not at all.  At the time, Vitter did not have another election until four years or so, three years, four years after the scandal, and he did not have any republicans running against him?  Here in North Louisiana, you are certainly going to have a number Republicans running against him, certainly i think Roger Villere, Bobby Jindal and company will be supporting at least one candidate, two candidates

Crouere: Well the Robertson family has their own candidate in the race, so the Duck Dynasty people aren't behind him and that was a big factor in his first victory.

Sabludowsky: Sure, yea, Duck Soup party, absolutely. so we'll just have to wait and see but yea, I think he's going to have a tough time

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
