Is the Bill Cassidy LSU double-billing controversy jigged or rigged?
Is the "jigged-up" Bill Cassidy LSU double-pay controversy over, dead and gone, as at least one conservative commentator claims? Or, has a just-released LSU audit of the "scandal" that arose during the last moments of the very hotly contested election between former US Senator Mary Landrieu and then US Rreepsentative Cassidy, been rigged due to powerful influences? Apparently, according to the public sentiments of the two bloggers who broke the story, Lamar White Jr. and Jason Berry, the audit is worthless.

Love that Mark Twain. “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re misinformed,” the Missouri Muse wrote once upon a time.
Your Humble Observer has been guilty of being both un and mis in the area of informed. That’s a major part of the reason I rarely respond to the writing of columnists. Most of them are more than a little smarter than YHO, so I hesitate to contradict.

Former U.S. House speaker Tip O’Neill said it time and time again. All politics is local. I interviewed Tip on a New Orleans television show I hosted back in the 1990s. He went on for sometime that you have to be intimately involved in your home state, if you want to survive. It’s a lesson that Senator Mary Landrieu forgot.
The last race in the country for the U.S. Senate is over. On Saturday, Louisiana voters elected Congressman Bill Cassidy to serve as their next U.S. Senator. It is unusual for an incumbent senator to be defeated for re-election in Louisiana but this election was unusual from the beginning.
This morning U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) appeared as a guest on my radio program, Ringside Politics, on WGSO 990 AM in New Orleans.
Two major issues today—Barack Obama’s executive order and the upcoming US Senate race.
Our inbox today is inundated with emails trying to belittle the competition or put their sides in the best light.
There are two ways to view what transpired in Louisiana and in Washington DC involving yesterday’s Keystone Pipeline XL debate.
Mary Landrieu did not win.
People wonder if Mary Landrieu can pull out a close one, once again.
Legendary musician Stevie Wonder is trying to make sure she does.
How politically convenient is the timing of the debate in the US Senate today regarding an issue very important to Louisiana and to many of the “Red” Republican states who support the Keystone Pipeline construction?
That is an issue raised during today’s Senate debate.
