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.

landrieu-cassidyHow 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.

Much of the drama evaporated from the Louisiana U.S. Senate race after Republicans gained control of the Senate in elections held on November 4.

landrieu-mary-youngEver since Senator Landrieu's poor performance in the primary election, some Republicans have been predicting an easy victory in the run-off.
Such thinking is dangerous to say the least. It is never easy to defeat an incumbent, especially one who has been in the same office for 18 years. The Landrieu name has legendary political appeal in Louisiana as the family has been winning elections for 54 years.
