Friday, 12 September 2014 13:05 Written by

We all know how the presidential-hopeful, Louisiana governor, Bobby Jindal has sued his own Department of Education and then after failing, sued the Obama administration over the implementation of Common Core.   We recall when he was one of the most strident advocates of the program, before his “awakening” or perhaps, his drinking too much “made-for-the-presidential-campaign-tea”.

landrieu-blueWhile she’s getting a Maness-churian candidate assist on the subject, the very nature of the issue’s dynamics is not going to turn a remark made by Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy into any appreciable fodder to help the deteriorating candidacy for reelection of Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu.
