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?

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.

On the extreme right, from the jowls of someone who knows a thing or two about investigations against a President, Pat Buchannan, there is still “nothing there, there”.
