Twitter today: Louisiana Sen. Vitter pointing out that a CBO plan shows why Obama and Harry Reid should embrace "conservative spending cuts plans". New felony charges against former New Orleans Public Belt exec, Jim Bridger. Legislature saying goodbye to Louisiana Medical Center oversight.
Bereft of winning issues, a leftist organization tries something new. Searching for relevance, a group with a track record of religious conservatism tries something old. Both target Sen. David Vitter with arguments that, when examined on a principled basis, have no merit.
Paul Rainwater is in, Mark Brady is out.
That’s the word out of Baton Rouge after a series of confirmation hearings on the commissioner of administration and his deputy commissioner, respectively.
Jeff Pash, the NFL's chief negotiator, said on Tuesday the league remains committed to spending whatever time it takes to speed up the a resolution to the lockout.
This past weekend millions of Americans celebrated Father’s Day by watching the U.S. Open golf championship. It was an amazing display of superb golf by young champion Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland. Unfortunately, the broadcast was marred by another disgusting display of political correctness.
The tournament was broadcast by NBC, which produced a promotional piece emphasizing the patriotism of having the event at a country club near our nation’s capital. Part of the piece included school children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Incredibly, the words “under God” were edited out of the piece not once, but twice.
I hope all the fathers out there had a wonderful Father's Day in the company of their loved ones!
Another steamy week has gone by but what a way to go.
Last week was very special for me since I started my week on Tuesday, by attending the third of Legacy Series Luncheons at the Monteleone Hotel. This delicious and informative luncheon explored the exciting Political History of Hotel Monteleone with a great cast of speakers.
In response to the U.S. Department of Justice preclearance House Bill 1 passed during the redistricting session this spring of the Louisiana special legislative session, the Louisiana Legislative Black Caucus has released this letter stating its objections and reasons:
The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), an organization who has filed complaints against Louisiana’s Senator David Vitter, Mary Landrieu and Governor Bobby Jindal has asked the senate Select Committee to investigate Senator David Vitter on the issue of bribery.
CREW has filed a number of complaints against Vitter over the past few years.
For now, it’s Billy Nungesser versus Jay Dardenne for Louisiana Lt. Governor’s spot.
Today, Billy Nungesser, President of Plaquemines Parish, announced his candidacy for Lt. Governor this morning in front of family, friends and supporters in Belle Chasse, LA.
One of the big debates in the Louisiana blogosphere today is questioning Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann’s intelligence or at least her honesty.
Bachmann made a big hit at the Republican Southern Leadership Conference in New Orleans this Friday as she did last week on the CNN Republican Party Presidential debate.
However, at the conference, Kevin Allman of the Gambit tried to ask her a very simple question about a statement she made while on a 2006 panel discussion when she tried to support Intelligent Design or some say “Creationism” in schools.
