Louisiana Senator Guillory makes unique announcement for Lt. Governor run
Written by 

Guillory2Last night, Politics with a Punch made history with some “firsts”

It was the 13th anniversary of production that Jeff Crouere and I started in 2002 that has hosted some of the biggest personalities in politics, news and entertainment in Louisiana. 


It was also the first time that we have captured, by video, any part of the Louisiana-based “Politically-Incorrect-oriented” live comedy show and then published any part of the video.

So, with my phone camera, I captured Senator Elbert Guillory’s announcement that he would be running for Lt. Governor this fall.

Not that the announcement came as a surprise as it has been often reported that he was seriously considering the race.

In my opinion it was the first time a campaign announcement has been conducted in such a manner producing such an important message.

While I suppose the Senator will follow this announcement with a more thorough presentation of his reasons for running for the state’s second highest office, I am not certain that it will be more unique.

We will be posting more segments of what I consider to be a fabulous and funny show.  So, if you want to receive the highlights, then sign up for the Bayoubuzz newsletter.

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.
