If you have been receiving political email in your inbox, asking you to write a letter to the legislature, contribute to a candidacy, attend a fundraiser, watch a film clip and so on, you are not alone.

granddad had an admonition for someone (more than once, that someone was me) who he thought was running his mouth off a little too much: “Don’t let your alligator mouth overload your jaybird ass.”
Loosely translated, that means don’t go shooting off your mouth with claims you can’t back up—physically or factually.
The race for the White House is on. Both parties now have at least one major candidate seeking their party’s nomination for the presidency. The democrats are looking at a coronation while republicans are facing the professional wrestling equivalent of a battle royal. The winner of this over-the-top event will face the nominee of the Democratic Party.
That is the message of the day for Republicans throughout the nation. Stop Hillary Clinton.
It certainly has been the message in the various states, such as Louisiana, even hours after her Internet announcement today.
The Louisiana GOP has a special treat for those pledging to stop Hillary. A bumper sticker, donning the slogan, Stop Hillary, of course.
More do as I say, not, do as I do.
The Advocate and AP have reported that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, the so-called gold-standard paragon of government transparency, has refused to allow the public to see his emails.
In the midst of an email scandal that will not go away, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is being treated with kid gloves by House Republicans.

It’s going to take a lot more than old emails to derail Hillary Clinton’s grasp of the Democratic presidential nomination next year. Few voters really care how she communicated with her staff while serving as Secretary of State. Republicans think they are circling the wagons in major attack mode. But if they look in their own backyard, a number of GOP presidential wannabes, including Louisiana’s fair haired quixotic candidate Bobby Jindal, have the same problem of not following the law when it comes to producing emails.
What are Ambassador John Bolton’s plans for the upcoming Presidential elections 2016? It had been reported that he has helped Bobby Jindal in the area of foreign policy. Will he continue doing so, should Jindal decide to formally declare his candidacy for the nation’s highest job?
Do you like Queen Elizabeth II?
I do, I really do.
With the bombshell revelations that Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State used a private email account to conduct official business, there is a growing chorus of liberals such as Ron Fournier of the National Journal who are now questioning her inevitability as the Democratic Party nominee for President.
