Palin, Maness vs. Cassidy, Vitter in Louisiana US Senate race

And now, there are three.

palinOn Monday, Paul Hollis, Republican Louisiana member of the Louisiana House of Representative  called it quits in his US Senate bid.


The departure now leaves Democrat incumbent US Senator Mary Landrieu, Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy and Tea Party favorite, Colonel Rob Maness.

With qualifying in August and the elections in October, the public is beginning to take notice.

Despite substantial pounding by the Koch brothers, Landrieu leads Cassidy in a recent conservative leaning Rasmussen poll, 46-43 with now-departed Hollis, Maness and undecided splitting up eleven percent.  

However, Sarah Palin has backed Maness and the Colonel is running her radio ads showing her support.

National political pundit, James Carville, has recently opined that Maness can make a difference in the US Senate race.

Yet, some believe Carville is engaging in wishful thinking—actually hoping Maness will help Landrieu.

US Senator and one of the state’s most popular politicians, David Vitter, has entered the political conversation.   After Hollis announced his leaving the race, Vitter took to the Internet and thanked  Hollis for his decision then made it clear that the Hollis move would help Cassidy.

Can Maness begin to gain momentum?  Is Vitter right, that Hollis’s exit from the field helps Cassidy, Will Maness be the next to fold?   Why did Vitter suddenly enter into the US Senate race conversation?  Did he broker a deal? 

Jeff Crouere and Stephen Sabludowsky discussed these issues on the WGSO Radio-Bayoubuzz Google hangout webcast on Tuesday morning--watch video above

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.
