Winners of Louisiana elections post-mortem awards are
Written by 

awardAn election is not over without a proper post-mortem, or burial.   Welcome to Bayoubuzz’s First Annual Louisiana Election Post-Mortem Awards.  Now that the 2014 elections are history (and hopefully to be forever forgotten), we are proud to announce the victorious.   

 

With Congressman Bill Cassidy narrowly beating US Senator Mary Landrieu in a heart-throbbing humdinger of a barn-burner, we can now release our results to the public.   Please keep your comments to yourself as nobody cares anyway.  

We also apologize for being so tardy in our releasing these very results.  We are forever mindful how speedily the AP declared a winner Saturday night in the US Senate race--only two micro-seconds after the polls closed.  However, speed to announce means nothing to us.    Instead, we are driven by the quality of our endeavors, not the rapidity.  Paraphrasing a great former Louisiana US Senator, who paraphrased a great US President, “The joy has been in the fight.  The Bayoubuzz-mortem awards will always be worth fighting for”.

So, the envelopes please…and the winners, and losers are:

THE HOTTEST AND MOST BURNING QUESTIONS

How many Democrats can we fit into a phone booth?

Will Mary Landrieu reside in Washington DC or New Orleans?

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.
