landrieu-tea-partyAccording to the new SMOR Poll, a majority of “likely voters” (around 60%) now look unfavorably upon Mary Landrieu’s job performance.

Maness, who is at around 7% in the poll, is releasing gator TV ads; a couple of days ago, Sarah Palin announced that she’s endorsing Maness.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting.
